Tormentoso - 8 year old Buckskin - Great Sports horse with power and elasticity!!
This beautiful gelding is a standout with his golden color! Tormentoso is a buckskin colored gelding with a super nice character. He has only just arrived in the Netherlands but has already found his place. Every day that we ride him is a joy for us! Tormentoso is ridden the Doma Vaquera way, which means with one hand and very different from we are used to in the Netherlands. That makes it even nicer to find out what 'buttons' this beautiful man has. If you sit forward he jumps from walk to canter, if you sit deep and you whistle he stands still immediately. Backwards and sideways are no problem at all and he responds very well to all aids. In the beginning you have to find out where all the buttons are, but when you get the hang of it he does everything you want! You can ride him relaxed and make him hot, especially if you have found the button canter-walk-canter. The nice thing about him is that even though he gets hot Tormentoso remains reliable, one whistle and deep sitting and you are standing still again. We think that Tormentoso (which means stormy) is a super nice horse for the younger rider who wants to have lots of fun and maybe do some competitions. He will also be the perfect horse for Working Equitation because of his maneuverability and eager to learn personality. Tormentoso is a super well behaved and sweet gelding but like many other Spanish horses he is a bit shy when you walk straight into his stable. Biting, kicking, hitting etc are absolutely not in his vocabulary. Cuddling, relaxing and love are in here!
In short, are you looking for a golden horse for lots of fun that is lively but well behaved? A horse with a very nice character that you can really enjoy? Then Tormentoso might be the right horse for you!
