Best Kept Secret

Best Kept Secret is a 2013, 16.3 hand Trakehner gelding. Competing at Preliminary and Fourth Level dressage, he has the scope and talent to go to the top. He is by the Grand Prix show jumping stallion Horalas Pg*, out of the very special mare Barina (out of a mare by Peron Pg*, Olympic bronze medalist in dressage and by Graditz Pg*). Barina is also the dam of the approved Grand Prix dressage stallion Bond James Bond. Best Kept Secret, aka BK, was the Reserve Champion for the West Coast FEH (Future Event Horse). This exceptionally well-bred character has a ton of personality and will keep you laughing and endlessly entertained! His work ethic is also exceptional. He has lovely gaits and a soft mouth. He is sensitive and responsive to light aids without being hot or difficult. He is a real pleasure to ride—so much so, you won’t want to get off! This is a horse for international competition. Serious inquiries only, please.

Bodega Sky

Bodega Sky is an eye-catching 2014 Trakehner gelding, 16.2h. This charismatic gentleman checks all the boxes. He is very kind, tolerant, and forgiving yet sensitive, trainable, and athletic, which makes him ideally suited to be a competitive Young Rider horse or an upper-level prospect for an ambitious adult amateur. He is easily schooling third-level dressage, effortlessly jumping 1.15m courses, competing at Training Level eventing and occasionally teaching a kid or adult amateur what he has recently learned. He has perfect manners, no vices, other than requiring his person to be affectionate. He also has a sense of humor that will endlessly keep his fans entertained. He would prefer a show home with a partner who keeps horse treats on auto-ship. $55,000
