He’s a really lovely, modern type with a superb trot and canter mechanism — his walk is his weakest gait. The mareline is really consistent for producing supple, athletic horses that are successful in sport and keurings. This horse is bred by van Helvoirt, who bred Jazz himself. The Wendy line, that is behind this horse, is one of the most successful dressage lines in Holland. It’s really interesting blood for us in North America. I’m not saying he’ll work with every mare–Florencio’s dam brings short legs and a heavier type, but we’ve certainly seen some successful crosses with him on Dutch mares.
