NIKOLASZ- 2014 Bay Gelding
Sire: Palladium (*Arpan x *Panache by Almaz)
Dam: Nadina (*Algomej X Nijmegen by *Arpan)
Full brother to Paladin BF who was High Point Endurance Horse in British Columbia a couple of years ago!
Close-coupled, balanced gelding with excellent bone and structure, Nikolasz has the mind and athletic ability to take the serious competitor to the top in Endurance, Sport, Working Western or any other endeavour where extreme athletic ability is required. A natural athlete, Nikolasz never puts a foot wrong and will only get better with maturity, conditioning and training.
Started as a three year old last summer, Nikolasz is back in training now and is being ridden out every day for a couple of hours. Bill Calder, a retired veterinarian, has been riding our horses for the past seven years, starting them in the round pen, then riding them out through gates,cows, traffic, creeks and whatever challenges he can find. Started and usually ridden in a rope halter he is also used to a snaffle bit, western saddle, loaded into trailers, wears and drags a tarp and plastic bottles and is good with his feet.
As a three year old Niolasz was Bill’s choice to ride to pony his three year old mates on their first trips out through the pastures and fields.
