To my only partly biased eyes, Jens (pronounced Yens in the Dutch language) is the most beautiful horse I have ever seen.  He has Friesian Sporthorse conformation, with a mane that ends below his neck and a full, bushy tail.  He has an elegant head, a lovely face, a short back, and a more uphill conformation than most Friesians.  He is sweet and friendly to both people and other horses.  He has good ground manners for vets and farriers, he tolerates baths well, and he loads into the trailer with little fuss.  He tolerates dental work (hand tools, of course) without anesthesia.  His movement is glorious, with a big bouncy trot and a butter-smooth canter.

Unfortunately, as a 72-year-old man with arthritis, after owning Jens for ten years I have to face the fact that I am no longer the right rider for him.  I want to ride 2nd or 3rd level dressage, and I can’t sit Jens’s big medium trot.  I can sit his working trot, but just barely.  I will only sell him to an experienced, strong rider who can inspire a horse’s trust and confidence.  For such a rider, Jens will be a wonderful partner.

Jens is ready to show at Second Level, as you can see in the video.  He is in full training with USDF Gold Medalist Verena Diaz, working on Third Level.

Like most horses his age, Jens has a few physical issues, which are manageable and have not impaired his performance. If you're interested in him, I'll discuss them with you.
