$27000 — Reno, Nevada
Santa Monica was a Premium Award Foal. She has fabulous movement, reminiscent of San Rubin and his famous sire, Sandro Hit who is ranked 2nd on the WBFSH list and has produced numerous licensed sons and Champion mares, was number 1 stallion in the US for 3 years in a row. The great Rubenstein is in sire line on the dam side and World Cup I on her dam side was known for his tremendous contribution to the breeding world of 17 licensed sons and over 49 State Premuim mares as well as one of the Hanoverian world's most influential stallions, Weltmeyer. Monica is schooling all 4th level movements and is working on a lovely piaffe and passage. She has a willing attitude & learns very quickly and would be suitable for an amateur rider in a training program who wants to show up to third and clinic and lesson. She is great on trail rides alone or in a group, will pony with no problem, and pretty much has an unflappable approach to her surroundings at shows or wherever she goes. She has a wonderful canter and huge walk. The judges really like her, giving her several 8's at Training and First level. Videos of her tests available. Second & third level videos coming. At her first show, an amateur who had not ridden her took her into the ring after a short warmup and got 68%. Her second show was also with an amateur rider at 1st level, receiving some 8's. Videos available at the shows. This is an opportunity to purchase a very well bred Oldenburg GOV for a very reasonable price. During cold weather, she can show occasional unevenness at the trot but nothing has changed over the years with all the added lateral and upper level work and in fact the work has only improved her trot. She is not on any maintenance but will be starting basic maintenance this month. Her price is reflective of this. $27k. She is ready to teach you a lot. Her canter is easy and you could ride it forever, trot is easy to sit, big, beautiful overstepping walk and she likes to move out. Good mind and loves attention. She's brave and smart and you can take her anywhere. Monica will make someone a wonderful partner for trails, showing, clinicing, and learning changes and piaffe.

First dressage show, July 2017. The first day was going to be with an amateur rider who had been riding Monica for about 8 months. It was the rider's first show as well. The rider had to scratch so for the 2nd day, I asked a young amateur if she wanted to catch ride in the test. She rode Monica for about 45 minutes (having not ridden her before) and tested & got the 67.8%, even with the break in canter for the double score! They were terrific!
