Karlsson comes directly from the breeder and is ready for his competition debut (1.10 m).



This particularly amiable gelding is - considering his young age - not easily distracted. Karlsson is easy to ride and requires virtually no physical effort on the part of his rider.


What sort of rider does the horse need?

This talented young athlete is suitable for an amateur who would like to bring him on with the support of a trainer. Karlsson also has plenty of potential for higher levels.


US trainer Wilhelm Genn has added this horse to his collection. Watch here the videos of the test and his statement about the horse.
