D'Artagnan, aka Jordan, is my 2001 model Oldenburg gelding.  He is by Donnerhall out of the elite Feiner Stern mare, Wild Rose. 

In addition to his cool bloodlines, he's a really cool horse!   Mellow yet playful in his personality; bright and forward under saddle. 

The perfect combination!  Jordan was lightly started when I got him, and as of summer '08 we are schooling and showing first level dressage. 

We have done several shows together, with his high score so far at 73.5%.  New!  Lesson photos of Jordan and I.

 

Jordan is a lucky boy - he has been barefoot and in a comfortable Balance saddle pretty much from the start. 

When he tells me he doesn't like something, I listen, and try to understand what is really happening. 

We worked with Mark Rashid on ground handling and my own breathing and mentality while riding him, and he gets regular body work. 

I hope that with his great gaits and mind, and a sound and comfortable body, we can move up the levels of dressage and our relationship successfully --

and be good ambassadors for the natural and holistic approach to horse care and treatment.
