Chinook MWF aka Gibbs

We have two pretty cools 4 year olds entered in the 2021 US Event Horse Futurity. The first is Chinook MWF, owned and bred by our long time partner Meredith Michelfelder and Midway Farms.
Gibbs is by the show jumping, Holsteiner stallion GK Calucci, and he is out of Meredith's very own Roxanne, who is by Riverman. It is pretty special to have another second generation Midway Farms baby! Calucci is certainly well bred for the jumper arena, but I think the coolest part about him is that he was ridden himself throught the Grand Prix level by an amatuer in a snaffle bridle. To have scope and atheleticism, as well as rideability is incredibly appealing! Roxie, who we've known for years, is a lovely type herself. She always scored well in the dressage, and she is a quick, scrappy jumper. Between Calucci and Roxie's lines, we expect Gibbs to be pretty specatcular. So far he hasn't dissapointed. He's got exellent gaits, and as he continues to mature these get better. He is a scopy, smart jumper, and he's brave to the fences. Best of all, he seems to have inherited his dad's ridability. He's such an easy going dude.
I am most excited about the brain becuase it doesn't matter how fancy something is, if you can't train it! Having all this athletic ability is an added bonus! Watch Gibbs's US Event Horse Futurity Vlog on our YouTube Channel.
