BIRCHWOOD, aka "Woodie": 2002 Dark Bay Gelding. Percheron/TB Cross by the Grand Prix stallion, Cottonwood Flame. Measures 16.1H.
BACKGROUND:Woodie arrived to Thornridge Manor in mid-September 2014 to get back in shape, strut his confirmed 3rd+ level moves and eventually get sold. He has had the same owner for the last 6 years. During this time, Woodie has received top-notch care & training, with not just an exceptional owner, but with a well known and respected dressage professional. Although Woodie has minimal show mileage, he has actually spent the last 5 winters, in full training, with Jim Armstrong, in Wellington! Such is the life this very special horse has deserved.
CURRENTLY:Woodie has quickly found a soft spot in the hearts of both Phoebe & Claudia. He is a solid and competitive Third Level horse that comes with multiple extra buttons. We took our due process to get Woodie back into shape and in a position to show-off his buttons. We contacted 3 close friends about this special horse and the opportunities he had to offer. For the right rider, he is a 2015 Bronze Medal just waiting to happen!!! It is no surprise, to us, that he sold before we were even able to market him for sale. WE LOVE Woodie! He is just FUN FUN FUN!!!!
We are thrilled to share Woodie's next journey with his wonderful new owner. And, we are lucky to have this super horse still available to us on a lesson and lease possibility. Feel Free To Inquire!!!
