    "Cheenook the Holsteiner Stallion?"

    Posted this in a diff section. So I was just wondering. I'm not gonna' get into any debates about people riding stallions. However, I was simply asking because it changes quite a bit when you are importing a horse you don't know. A blood line you don't know. Trainers you don't know. A young horse. That is a stud. LOOOTS of variables there.

    That's his sire. I thought you were talking about my training post. We were looking at some stallions (which we would have had gelded there) before we found this one.

    I just realize that the video says Cheenok and with my recent posting that could be confusing. Let me clarify.
    This is the currently unnamed gelding by the Holsteiner stallion Cheenook. Though I think we are naming him GQ.

    He looks really interested in jumping. You can see at one point the person riding him at a trot sort of heads for a jump and the horse lifts his head and perks up. I saw how he looked like he was having fun over the big jumps too. He looked like he was saying "that was nothing".

    Ah! I understand now. Thanks for clarifying that. So I suppose my ending opinion will be that he is going to get you around really well in the jumpers. Esp the upper division stuff. However, he doesn't look like much of an upper division hunter to me. He's just very active and isn't square enough in front over the small stuff to have a nice Hunter round in the USEF rated shows. Beautiful guy though, for sure. Quite talented!

    I think you're right about the jumping, I hadn't really noticed that before. We'll be taking him over to 2'6"/2'9" hunters to get him use to flowers (which he's never seen before) and working up to the 3'6" A/Os. Hopefully he'll put more effort into them when he sees the flowers. Though, I'm pretty sure he won't put much effort into the 2'6" regardless.

    Oh, and he passed the vetting this morning. They are sending the x-rays to our vet to review, but it looks like he's coming to America.

    It'll be a while. He's not scheduled to leave for New York until sometime next week and they we have to wait a week for the quarantine. I'll post pictures as soon as I get some.

    Oh, and I was wrong, he's a Hanoverian.
