Fortissimo B aka ‘Fonzy’ is an elegant and very talented young horse. He has three extremely elastic and powerful gaits. Success in the show ring has come easily for him. In 2012, Fonzy was primarily campaigned by his adult amateur owner at Training level and in the Markel USEF Young Horse classes for four year olds. His year end Training Level median was 70.0%, with scores as high as 80.0%. He qualified and competed in the Markel USEF Young Horse Finals for 4 year olds on an average score of 8.0, with scores up to 8.38. Year end awards included Reserve Champion AHS Training Adult Amateur, 12th National USDF Training Adult Amateur and Champion SCDCTA Training Level Adult Amateur.

He is maturing nicely and showing ever more expressive gaits. From one month to the next he delights with his development. He is easily schooling all the movements for First Level and the FEI 5 year old test. Lateral movements are smooth, reaching and elegant. Lengthenings are willing, powerful and rhythmical. He really is an exciting top prospect for the future. He is best suited for a professional, aspiring young rider or ambitious amateur.

Fortissimo B will be heading to White Fences in Loxahatchee, Florida on February 11th. Silva will be training and competing him while in Florida until mid March. If not sold, he will be staying in training with Silva upon her return to her northern home in Pennsylvania.

Please call Silva directly at 610-806-2721.
