Starbound Equine specializes in the development of young sporthorses for dressage. Our focus is on bringing up confident and willing partners with correct training that are safe for the amateur mount. Our programs start with prospects from foals up to show horses. We take 4-8 horses at a time for training and many are available for sale.

2010, 17 h Imported KWPN gelding (Jazz x Jacardo)

Schooling 4th level and some PSG.  FM is going from strength to strength and is ready to take his serious partner to the FEI levels. He would be a competitive FEI Junior or Young Riders horse as he impresses the judges as soon as he enters the ring.   Florida is a people horse, as much time as you have he will hang out with you, he loves grooming, scratches, and just generally attention. Located in Loxahatchee, very competitively priced.

2013 KWPN gelding by Everdale out of a Jazz mare.

This stunning gelding is an absolute show stopper. All eyes will be on you at the shows with this guy. Standing 17.2hh, his expressive gaits are all well balanced and correct.  He is a true representation of his sire, Everdale, with his scopey, elastic gaits and uphill balance.  The mix of Jazz on his dam line gives his temperament a sensible kick.

Ici has Grand Prix potential and would be great for an experienced rider looking for their next big prospect to take them all the way.  You will enjoy taking this horse through every level earning top scores.

Ici has shown through 1st level with solid scores in the 70’s!  He is currently schooling 2nd and 3rd level movements and his price will increase significantly once he is ready to show 3rd.

2013 Oldenburg Mare by Wittershausen (Welt Hit II). Shown Training through Third level Dressage with scores in the 60s and lower 70s as well as Hunters at WEF and baby jumpers at Fox Lea in Venice, FL.  This gorgeous mare is a work horse with the perfect mouth and a strong hind end through all gaits and over fences. Very confident and attentive and easy to ride with a clean change.

She is smart, not spooky, loves to go for hacks and is safe enough for an amateur. She would love a young rider to spoil her and take her into the fields to jump and play, but she would just as much appreciate an older, laid back adult to feed her cookies. Currently schooling fourth level movements, she will be a change machine and the ability for Piaffe and Passage are certainly there.

She IS a chestnut mare. She is sweet and affectionate and eager to please her rider but she occasionally thinks she knows more and she may be telepathic.  If you don’t get along with mares, she’s not the horse for you, but if you enjoy a laugh while you ride, you should definitely inquire today!

Priced mid 5 figures and will significantly increase when she reaches PSG.  Recent Radiographs available.

Scandal has her very own page on our site, Cross-training Scandal with many additional jumping and dressage videos.

Click here for more info. Priced mid 5 figures and will increase with more training and show experience. Also available for in barn lease for a VERY reasonable price.
