    I always liked him - he reminded me most of his sire, although his strong trait was certainly more in the dressage ring, not the multip-purpose format that Sixtus can produce. Lafayette was sold to...

    >>Hirtentanz himself apparently is not competing at 1.6m then, so I have to wonder if he is a top end jumper.<<

    I was never a fan of Gribaldi. But one thing I always held him in very high regard for is the fact that he more or less "sanely" functioned with Uytert at his side and Gal on his back for such ch a...
