Sale Information - SOLD

Hey Garcon, aka Zen, has lived up fully to his barn name, Zen takes everything in stride and is rarely bothered by what is going on around him. His calm demeanor never disappoints and he has proven himself to be a true professional both on and off property including shows. Over the last nine months of his retraining he has been exclusively ridden by an amateur and can take a joke.

Zen has basic dressage training but has excelled over fences, showing in 2' jumpers and in the 2’6” hunter ring and has schooled 2’9” with scope to go higher. His quiet nature lends him more to the hunter ring with a sweeping stride that can get you down any line with nearly auto lead changes. However, he is careful and bold enough to go in any direction. Zen has schooled cross country several times including water and banks and has even participated in a mini-trial.

He recently showed at the 2018 New Vocations All-Thoroughbred Show & TIP Championships where he finished 8th and 9th in the 2’6” over fences hunter class. His easy-going nature and consistency make him a suitable horse for an intermediate rider with a trainer, an advanced rider, or a professional searching for a new partner. BONUS Zen has been barefoot for the last twelve months with no issues!
