Oldenburg Gelding "Stefan"
Stefan is a 16 year old TRUE 17.1 hd gentle giant, chestnut branded Oldenburg gelding. We acquired him after the passing of his owner in GA and the family could not locate his papers so he is selling grade; we do not know his lineage or have access to previous show records; he has been with us about 2.5 years , he was purchased to be a personal show horse for latter resale but owners riding accident(not involving Stefan) has changed the plan and he's too nice to stand around; Although he is an older guy, he is sound and very willing and good tempered to teach any level rider or youth the ropes. we were told he was trained through 4th level but would need a lot of work to get back those movements, at his age I would say he would be a excellent hunter(he will drop down and really float along in a relaxed frame too!) or training to second level horse or further if you really worked on him for the next year; He has 3 wonderful, clean rhythmic gates, and is extremely honest. He has a great work ethic (tries very hard to do what is asked and does not get upset if you ask incorrectly and loves the attention of any kind), he is NOT a hot horse and can actually be a tad lazy so he will require someone who can use their legs and seat to ride him; he has no 'older horse' creaks, 100% sound. this all being said, his price is extremely low due to a few circumstances... 1. Stefan has been standing the past year, he has poor muscling over his topline due to lack of work and conditioning and a tad underweight from being out to pasture in the summer heat, this should all recover nicely as he was this way when we purchased him and he recovered to the level of the videos posted within 3-4 months of feeding and regular work 2. Stefan has a condition called Deep digital dermatitis which makes ugly sores on the fronts of his fetlocks that will not go away, we have thousands of dollars in vetting we can provide to prove he is sound and it is ONLY a cosmetic issue, there is no soft swelling of the legs, just hard scar tissue spots behind the sores that are permanent... there are videos provided of his current condition and legs on our website as well as videos from last year when he was in regular work, please see ALL videos!; we have provided tons of pictures, current and past videos and are open to ANY additional vetting you want, he is honest sound horse with a few very manageable issues that result in a low price for such a well trained boy!!!! This grants a wonderful opportunity to for a rider/training program looking for a school master or simply a great horse to be very competitive on. Stefan is a wonderful addition to any barn or lesson program; we are asking $6500 obro offer, please do not waste our time or yours with extremely low ball offers, we are being very upfront and honest about him and have provided tons of footage and info, we have released all vet records to any interested party! we may entertain partial trades or reasonable payments with a good chunk of cash down, thanks so much for your interest!
