Recently imported from France, he is the ideal young horse: enough scope and talent to interest a professional, with a temperment to suit an amateur. Thanks to his reliability, Chess is always our first choice to bring guests out for a hack, and is our clients' favorite on whom to take a special 'young horse jumping lesson.' He comes from a breeding farm in France where he had been lightly started before we imported him to the US in January 2017. Proving to be a natural, he stepped right into the 2'9" jumpers at his first schooling show with ease. Since then he has added to his resume qualifications for championships in the Five Year Old Young Event Horse at Fairhill, the NAYJDP Year End Finale, and the Young Horse Show Series Finals at Tryon International Equestrian Center.
He has 3 solid gaits with good suspension in the trot and will demonstrate increasing scope as his education develops and the fences get bigger. He is brave as a lion on the cross country, and skips over ditches
