This AWS Eligible colt is 3/4TB 1/4Percheron, a nice cross for show hunter, event or general sport horse suitability. He is sired by Sheik's Legacy and out of a Cancade Sport Horse Mare, Cancade 87. He is 1/2 brother to Versace, Armani and Kennedy.  He sells with an  AWS Breeding Certificate.  He completed one month of professional halter breaking in Canada. As a weanling, Bishop was, along with his 2 half brothers, the pic of the 2012 NW Canadian crop selected for VSH by a professional buyer. Bishop is a flat kneed mover suitable for the hunters, pony club, eventing and would make a great foxhunter.

Here is a link to a facebook album which contains pics from 2013 forward. 

7/21/15 update: Steady Eddy .... great relaxed attitude, not lazy. Spending another week in training at Swift Creek School of Equitation with trainer Jessie Clise, working on circles, bending, framing up and starting over rails and grids.

12/4/14 update: Bishop is a "born broke", old soul type of horse. Already at his young age, a horse that any person can ride in the arena or hack out with others or alone.

10/9/14 Update from the trainer: Bishop is very easy to work with. He is riding walk trot canter in the ring and hacks out quietly. He can trot and canter 20 meter circles in the arena and picks up both leads. He has very easy, comfortable gaits. His gaits are very easy to sit and he has an excellent brain! Definitely the easiest horse in his group. He will make an EXCELLENT Old Lady/Beginner rider's horse. He would be excellent for fox hunting, trail riding, lower level dressage, local hunters, etc. He would be difficult to mess up.

9/22/14: Very excited for this fellows return from 30 days professional training.His first week was here on the farm and when he left he was going w,t,c in the round pen. He has come along nicely and is solid at all three gaits in the arena and has hacked out several times on long trail rides.

3/24/14: Here is what I posted to fb after freejumping our prospects:  With so many bay geldings of the same age and size...we had to identify every one of them by markings to VERIFY that Bishop was indeed NOT one of our Hanoverian crosses. A fly on the round pen wall would have heard me say "I just don't see how its possible that a 3/4TB is going to jump and move as well as two 3/4 Hanoverians" ...but then I remembered the day that he was gelded and having to make the difficult decision to keep our 7/8 Hanoverian Stallion Prospect and geld this one because I just couldnt justify keeping a 3/4TB for a stallion...he is THAT nice. Can not wait for him to shed his nasty winter coat to reveal what I know lies beneath.

7/9/13: Moved this colt out to our farm in Remington Va, where he can grow up with a group of stud colts that we are considering as stallion prospects. He compares favorably to each and everyone of his companions and they are Hanoverian crosses and Irish Sport Horses.

9/20/13: Have been agonizing over this colt and can't seem to bring myself to geld him... He compares very favorably with the group of Hanoverianx and Irish Sport Horse colts that I have been bringing along as stallion prospects.. Cant justify keeping a 3/4TB 1/4 Percheron whole...so its going to happen this week, but wow...is he nice! Anyone who is looking for a real bargain... I mean a very nice horse similar to him (may even be his full sister...have to check...look at the bay filly with the star on the catalog of horses that can be imported from Canada in November... I think that he price with shipping is less than $1,700. She would have to come out of Canada now...(be purchased in the next week or so) as it is the last load going out of western Canada until next fall and the breeders in that region sell their foals each fall. 

10/11/13 update: Need a new picture of this fellow... He is beautiful and tall.

6/23/13: Gorgeous, coming along nicely. Keeping this one on the down low... he's for sale, but really purchased him to train and sell.

10/20/12 Trainer's Report:

The solid dark bay does not have a single white hair on him (red rope halter). Very good legs, lots of height, and nice balance. He is my funest to work with, as he makes you earn everything! Then again, he picks up the program fast. A class act hunter prospect for sure.
The one they called a buckskin is currently dark brown with a very light brown nose, and two hind white pasterns. The biggest of the boys, he has a very floaty trot with lots of hang time. I love how he is put together, and carries himself with a regal elegance.

They are all haltered, tied, and moved back and forth from outside round pen for exercise to barn where they alternate between tie and box stalls. They are all picking up their legs for me, rubbed all over, especially in the tickley areas like the groin. In the arena I work on lounging on the end of a 10 foot lead line. I am making them move around me, and with me as we cover the area. They are only hand watered, this is helping speed up the bonding process. They were all dewormed with 7cc's of liquid Ivomec on 18th, as well as the negative coggins and health check was done, just waiting to get papers back.

I am pretty sure you will be quite happy with all these colts, they are very good and should excel at a variety of disciplines.

I got about one more week with them so should have a bit more progress
