Congratulations Ashley!! 

Overview:  Clavio is a 9 year old imported Holsteiner gelding by Casiro (Click here for pedigree).  This young man is very amateur friendly.  You can view video footage of Clavio by clicking on the following link: (Clavio Videos) USEF #5362831.

Show Mileage and Potential:  Clavio has been brought along as a hunter, but we believe he is handy and responsive enough to cross over into the equitation ring.  He is currently competing in the 3'-6" Conformation Hunters, he is schooling 3'-9" at home and has the step and scope to go higher.  Clavio is ready to embark on his Junior or Amateur career where we believe he could be very competitive.  Clavio's "A" show mileage includes HITS Saugerties, Kentucky Horse Park and Capital Challenge.

Under Saddle:  Clavio is a very honest, kind, straight-forward horse.  This flashy eye-catcher is forgiving, dependable and easy to ride.  Clavio is a little bit of a leg ride.  He is well broke, easy to stay with over fences and he has a good work ethic.  Clavio is a brave, steady mount that is the same horse each day.  Clavio's advanced flatwork includes the counter canter and lateral work.

Trainability:   Clavio is a smart horse who retains his training and he is eager to please.  He has a nice big stride and a steady canter that is adjustable and easy to frame.

Preferred Rider:  We believe Clavio would be an ideal partner for a rider who is looking for a fancy horse to move up the rankings.  Clavio is a brave, consistent mount who is forgiving of the occasional miss.  He is also a willing, dependable partner.

On the Ground:  On the ground, Clavio is very well mannered and he loves to be pampered. 

Temperament:  Clavio is sweet and affectionate with a laid-back demeanor.  He is a good-brained horse who stands quietly, is agreeable, tolerant and gentle. 

Program:   Clavio is an easy-going fellow.  At the shows, he requires minimal prep.  At home, he receives two training rides a week and light hacks on the other days.  Clavio enjoys his daily turnout but he is also content if the weather restricts his time outside.
