Feiner Flash (ES Feiner Stern x MS Lilie)
2003 Bay, registered Hanoverian by ES Feiner Stern (Freiherr x Goldblatt) out of MS Lilie (Valeur x Ludmilla II)
Flash was bred on a small farm in GA that produces and prepares several young warm bloods for performance ownership. Flash came to Thornridge Manor with an extensive hands-on understanding of manners and general love for people. Since his arrival in the late spring, Flash’s positive experiences have only further developed his charismatic and confident nature. He readily has gained notoriety around the farm as the most straight forward and willing horses that we have broken. After less than one month under saddle, we transported him to a schooling show where he competed Intro level and earned a score just shy of 65%. When inquiring about his background, the judge was in disbelief that a youngster on his maiden show voyage had such a “wonderful mind”.
Flash is a testament that bigger is not always better: large movement can be available in a small package. Currently measuring 14.2H without shoes, Flash is not expected to grow much taller. We believe that at maturity, Flash will meet rulebook-measurement as an FEI Pony: 14.3H with out shoes and 15H with shoes. He does not hold a current card, and per rules would need one annually until the age of 8 where he could get a permanent card.
Thanks to his breeder’s handling, Flash’s unparalleled disposition makes him extremely trainable; his ground covering movement makes him extremely competitive in both the dressage ring and show hunter ring. For now, his training will continue under Claudia Kleinsmith as an FEI Pony prospect and is only offered for purchase with a special match. Check back for more updates and photography postings.
