Sire: Furst Nymphenburg
Dam: By Rotspon
Francis HW was imported as a 4 yr old and has been shown from Training level to Grand Prix. He is a gelding standing 17.1h by Furst Nymphenburg x Rotspon and has scored nearly 70% at all levels to I-2. Fenn was a super boy under Friday night lights for the Challenge of Americas for two years in a row and loves the special attention of his person.
He would be happiest as a small tour horse. The sweetest most snuggly fellow on the ground. Needs a confident rider with a hot seat as he is not one that will take a nagging leg. We love Francis and hope to find him a perfect person for his next chapter. Fenn as we call him in the barn loves his main pulled, grooming, bathes, and is good to load and trailer.
