Gerald is the epitome of a fine gentleman. He will capture you with his undeniable presence, and hold your attention with his refined uphill build, and beautiful copper coat. However it is his gentile loveable nature that will grab hold of your heart. Gerald brings excellent Akhal Teke bloodlines with proven success in both the jumper ring and the dressage ring.

As a two year old, Gerald won a gold medal and red preferred status at an American Warmblood Inspection. He went on to win the 2 year old division, at the first Akhal-Teke championship in America, at the Kentucky Horse Park. Finally, at one United States Dressage Federation in hand class, Gerald's score earned him 6th place in the nation, for sport horse suitability.

Gerald started his career at Akhal Valley Farms in Eventing progressing from entry level to Preliminary level in two short years of competition. Although he showed promise in Eventing it became apparent that he enjoyed dressage more then the jumping portion of Eventing.

Gerald started his dressage career in the spring of 2014 showing second level in the spring and summer of 2014. In the winter of 2014 and 2015 Gerald made the trip to California to train at Arroyo Del Mar the barn of Steffen and Shannon Peters with Olivia Wentworth-Stanley. While in California Gerald competed in several National level shows at third level, achieving scores of up to 68%. Gerald placed first or second in every third level test he competed in. Gerald competed in Canada in Spring of 2015 again achieving scores of up to 68% at third level and winning his class. Gerald competed in fourth level in late 2015 winning two of the three classes entered. He will make his debut at Prix St George in Spring of 2016.

Gerald's offspring show all promise talent, beauty, and reliability. They all possess their dad's excellent temperament and intelligence, as well as his great conformation, and natural athleticism. They are beautifully balanced with excellent uphill movement, with three exceptional gaits.
