Anchor Creeks Zander – Friesian Cross Gelding

By October 15, 2021For Sale

Anchor Creeks Zander

This young gelding shimmers with talent. At only 3 years old, he is showing tons of promise as a dressage mount. He is schooling Into/Training level and has a willingness and aptitude that’s hard to find. He truly loves the work, and it shows in his expressive movement. Zander is already showing lift through his shoulders during the up stride of the trot and canter, which will only increase as he gets stronger. His gaits have elasticity and suspension, proving that he has the basic skills to help him achieve the bigger movements. We are currently focusing on coming straight, soft on the circle, and connecting to the outside rein. All which will help strengthen him and increase impulsion.

Kind and extremely level headed, Zander gives his all no matter what is asked of him. He is a quick learner with his own motor, but is very much attuned to his rider and the aides. He thrives with a leader, someone who is confident enough to show him the way, correcting his mistakes or insecurities. Easily handled when he is unsure or put in a new situation. Absolutely no blow ups or naughtiness from this boy, and he is extremely forgiving, which is what I love about him. I enjoy this horse all around. An exceptional gelding with an exceptional personality. Friendly, loves attention, and has a kind, soft eye.

Excellent hacking out and loves the change of scenery. A straightforward ride and the perfect ladies horse. He has a solid start. Very trainable for someone who has experience with young horses or who is working closely with a trainer.

I was born here at Anchor Creek Farms and grew up handling my father and grandfather’s mules and workhorses. These are animals who have jobs and are expected to behave – no nonsense allowed. Dad would give me a few colts to break which started my passion for training, and I’ve taken years of dressage and hunt-seat instruction. Draft-cross sport horses are my special love and I’ve had a lot of success with them but I enjoy the challenge of all breeds. Since I graduated with a BA in Business Management from Millersville University in 2010 I have been training horses full time.
