Fortunato, ‘Flash’, is by the legendary Dutch sire Flemmingh, one of the most influential sires of dressage horses in Holland. Flash has had an enormous year this year. For the past two years, Flash has been owned and ridden by Jenny Watters, a very enthusiastic and dedicated rider. Jenny became established at elementary level and won numerous elementary championships with more than 67%. Jenny then braved her very first medium test and indeed Flash’s very first medium test. They came 2nd. What a triumph! Jenny then had a baby and sold Flash to Carole Crumlin. Due to unforeseen circumstances he is up for sale, and so came to Ryan’s to be campaigned. Sappho rode Flash, they clicked instantly and basically went straight out and did an advanced dressage competition. The results? First in the first test and fourth in the second test. The following weekend, Sappho went off eventing and Heath took Flash out for two advanced tests after just four days’ riding getting to know Flash. He was brilliant and did not make one mistake and came 2nd in each test to win overall advanced champion. Flash is now qualified for Prix St Georges and unbelievably he is ready to go right now. Sappho and Flash have kept going with their training and are currently exhibiting all the tempi flying changes including 9 one time changes. He also has some baby piaffe appearing. It is our opinion that Flash is well on his way to being a Grand Prix horse. Flash has been ridden by older riders and young teenagers and has always behaved impeccably. This is a brilliant horse just looking for the right owner.
