We LOVE dual purpose breedings! And this filly is no exception. Ivy's sire, Mannhattan received high scores for his gaits both at his stallion licensing, as well as at his performance testing and of course, won the jumping portion of his testing with a commendable 128 points. He then went on to compete successfully in the jumpers up to Level 8. He has produced several offspring that have competed successfully through FEI level in dressage. Ivy's dam, Persis, is by the stallion Prince Optimus. Prince Optimus also proved himself to be multi talented by receiving 8's and 9's on his gaits, as well as 8's and 9's on his jumping ability. With such a multi-talented heritage, we foresee big things for this girl, whatever her new owner's chosen discipline!
A big, solid filly, she is already exhibiting the temperament and character that her parentage is known for. We look forward to watching Ivy mature and believe she will excel in either dressage, eventing or jumping.
