Looking for a horse to turn every head at the show? Look no further! Honest Gene (known as "Knight" in the barn) is not only one of the most talented thoroughbreds I have had the pleasure of bringing along, but also one of the kindest. He stands at a gigantic 17.2 and has a huge frame to back up the height. This horse has the kind of flashy and correct movement to take you to the very top level of Dressage and the scope and bravery jumping to take you to the top in Eventing. He is currently showing at Training level in Eventing and is one of the bravest cross country horses I’ve started. He has placed 2nd at both training events he attended. One on his dressage score and one with one rail. He will get you noticed in any avenue you take him. He is extremely soft off the leg and a responsive ride. He goes all phases in Eventing in a loose ring snaffle. Knight would be best suited for a intermediate rider, as he is an incredibly big mover with a soft heart. This is truly a horse of a lifetime.
