This rather special colt will be destined for a very exciting career with the right rider with a versatility demonstrated in his breeding that makes him an immensely exciting prospect for a career in any of the three olympic disciplines.
GFS Kalahari is a colt with a lot of charisma and the most gentle nature. He is a foal that stands out with his proud bearing, lovely head, kind eye and impressive paces. He has a lot of presence, is a quick learner, very well handled and has adapted to life after weaning with a calm, sensible attitude and pleasing willingness.
He is by AES Graded stallion, six year old GFS Eskimo Jo who is yet to make his mark competing but whose Graded Holsteiner dam was by was by Corrado I and out of a Landgraf I x Caletto II mare. His sire is currently competing at Novice BE and has a solid jumping pedigree with some really super bloodlines through both his dam and sires pedigree with proven top performance horses in both dressage and showjumping.
His dam is by Treliver Decanter and out of an Elite mare by the TB Accondy.
Kalahari will probably mature around the 17hh mark. He is naturally very uphill. His trot is big and ground covering and he has a very good balanced canter, purposeful swinging stride at walk and a good turn of speed at the gallop. He has correct conformation, good feet and strong well muscled legs with good bone and a well set neck, a good shoulder and powerful hindquarters.
This colt would be suitable for someone looking to produce a serious youngster for high end competition. He has a fabulous temperament being mannerly and willing to listen, he is going to be a big, powerful and athletic horse with a lot of talent and a big heart. I believe that this foal exhibits an abundance of the natural talent required to be produced in any discipline and to excel with the correct training.
