This gorgeous 2012 FPS Dutch Registered Friesian, jet black gelding; Norm S.D.P "Castle" was foaled in 2012 and stands 16.1 hands tall with long, thick black mane, tail, and stately feathers. He is a very sweet and personable boy, willing to try anything; and ready to meet you at the gate and ride at any moment even with time off.
In the arena, his movement is what you would expect of the high standard Dutch registry that a horse is qualified for through a series of tests such as temperament, quality of gait and conformation. He is regal in the arena with his uphill rocking horse canter/lope and extended trot. He has all the buttons, leg yield, half pass, side pass, hindquarter and forequarter yield, and lead changes. Making a competitive dressage, western dressage or working equitation horse.
You won't find an environment/trail/road or water crossing that he hasn’t tackled already. His second name should be mountain goat; traversing the steep and very rocky trails above treeline in the high Uinta mountain range. It’s impossible for him to go somewhere without people “oohing” and “ahhing” at him and pulling out their camera, and quite frankly he eats up the attention. You will love having this guy in your barn and as an equine partner.
