Thanks Lingkra and Titan! Titan, what did your Pilox end up doing, how old is he now?
We have a 2012 GOV colt, Poet's Leap, by Pilox out of Galoubet A mare with a TB damline (5 x 5 Nasrullah). He is about 40% TB by pedigree, but he has sizable bone and body size. He is 11 months old right now, a gelding, and stands a shade under 15 H. Big mover, big athletic type, big personality. He looks to be a GP jumper prospect. A sophisticated amateur would have no trouble with him, but not for beginners as he is super smart and sizes up the humans for sure. We have had fun educating him to age appropriate skills as he is a quick study. He has his sire's coloring but with a attractive amount of white on his face and three half socks. International jumper Taloubet Z who won the 2011 WC Finals in show jumping is Galoubet A-Polydor (Pilot) and inspired this breeding for us.
One of the favorite horses at a barn was by Pilox. This horse was perfect and automatic every ride. He started his career eventing, ran Training Level but was a tad heavy to make speed x-country. Now same owner rides him in the jumpers. This horse could do the jr. jumpers. He's very willing and agreeable, while super athletic both on the flat and o/f
(Said horse, Pippo, looks exactly like him. Same face )
