Don’t miss this truly exceptional opportunity to purchase a young yet proven Grand Prix athlete! Sir Velo is a 2006 Westfalen gelding (by Sandro Bedo [Sandro Hit/Donnerhall] x Florestan I) who was identified as a future star from the very start.
Purchased from the Westfalen auction in 2009, Sir Velo was carefully nurtured through the U.S. Young and Developing Horse Programs as one of the top young horses in the nation, earning 6th place at the Markel/USEF Four-Year-Old National Championship; 11th as a five-year-old; and returned to the championships one final time before aging out to earn 4th in the USA in the Developing Grand Prix division. Sir Velo continued to blossom through the small tour and on to Grand Prix, where he most recently competed at the U.S. Dressage Finals in November 2016 in Lexington, Ky., placing in the top 10 in the United States in the Open Grand Prix Championship division.
A special horse with a bright future, Sir Velo possesses not only the gaits, talent and work ethic to be able to compete at the highest level of the sport, but these qualities are also combined with a delightful personality. Fun, powerful and sensitive yet sensible to ride, he is happy to work in either a snaffle or double bridle, and enjoys time outside the ring for hacks and trail rides as well. He is sound with no vices (vet inspections welcome), and has been developed the right way in professional training for his entire career to date. Sir Velo has the rare combination of talent and spark to appeal to professional riders, yet also has a gentlemanly attitude for the ambitious young rider, Brentina Cup/U-25 competitor or adult amateur looking for a fun and safe Grand Prix horse.
At just 11 years old, Sir Velo is just beginning to reach his full potential as a talented Grand Prix mount, one which is already confirmed in all movements and will only continue to impress and light up the leaderboard as he develops even more strength, maturity and confidence. He has extensive experience in the show ring, competing across the Midwest and during the winter seasons in Wellington, Fla.; and when not winning ribbons, Sir Velo was chosen as a demo horse/participant in two USDF/Succeed FEI Trainer's Conferences, participated in the Challenge of the Americas, and was featured on DressageClinic.com as well as multiple Dressage Today and USDF Connection training articles and magazine covers.
