Harelquin Middelsom is an eight-year-old leopard spotted Knabstrupper stallion. Harley was imported from Denmark to our facility in the fall of 2008. He is a testament to this rare breed with his calm and friendly disposition, correct confirmation, and elegant movement.
Harley has an aptitude for the Sport Horse disciplines. In Dressage, he shows off his intelligence and flowing strides, already scoring in the 60's at Training Level. In addition, he is quick, careful, and frequently impresses spectators with his extreme scopiness in the Jumper ring. We have found that his boldness and endurance make him a prime eventing candidate as well.
Currently, Harley is working with our trainer, Cathy Schreiber, and 3 Day Event trainer, Manuela Propfe. Together, Cathy and Manuela are laying a strong foundation for Harley's career providing him with exceptional education and experience in both the Dressage and Jumper rings.
