FiveOTwo or “Champ” was originally adopted in 2017 and has been in Dressage training ever since. His adopter took excellent care of him -treating him for mild EPM, conditioning his muscles, injecting his SI, misotherapy and ulcer treatments. Unfortunately, he now feels so great that he has become a bit more than his adopter was looking for and now needs a confident, advanced rider to “remind him who is boss”, as his original description put it. We believe in the right, consistent training program, he will excel and succeed.
Champ did have a cortical stress fracture of the left front cannon bone way back in early 2015. It was rehabbed successfully and he even returned to racing – and won! – until June 2017. This injury should not limit him in any way.
Original NV Description: Fiveotwo seems to thoroughly enjoy his job and is very animated. He will start off tossing his head acting like a big horse but he is all talk. The next thing you know you are pushing the wild man to keep going! He likes to show off because he is talented and knows it. His canter is a lofty, rocking horse type. Fiveotwo has the steady tempo that will make him versatile in future careers. He could be equally successful as a hunter or eventer or dressage mount. He is suitable for a confident intermediate rider who appreciates his flair but reminds him who is boss. He has plenty of self confidence with a touch of humor. Fiveotwo is social and enjoys interacting with people. He does not have any stall vices.
