Benito is a 17.1 hh 5-year old bright chestnut Hanoverian with flashy white markings that will get you noticed in the ring. He has a super "puppy-dog" temperament and seems to crave human attention.
Benito has always been in professional training. Due to his size (17.1hh), and rate of growth, he was lightly trained as a 3 and 4 year old. As a five year old he is developing more balance and is ready to progress in his training. He has 3 nice gaits with a super ground covering canter.
Good for bathing, clipping, farrier and vet.
