Pasteur is a genuinely cool horse!  Here is a straight forward guy who is game for anything and lets you enjoy each ride.  He has great form over fences with a nice front end and square knees.  He has great bascule and really lifts at the withers.  Imported from Ireland, he was a steeplechaser in his earlier career, but is very calm, quiet and brave.  This adorable gelding has wonderful manners and a great attitude.  He's a perfect gentleman.  Pasteur has a huge overstep at the walk and an easy, big stride with nice reach that lets the lines come easily.  He gets his changes and is responsive to the aids.  Super willing and a very quick learner, he is jumping 2'6 eagerly.  He genuinely wants to please and enjoys learning.  You can take him on hacks in the field and he is not spooky and has no under saddle issues.  He could excel in any discipline.  His only vice is he will crib, but controlled with a collar.  Pasteur is sound (recent complete films available), has wonderful conformation, solid bone and great feet.  This pleasant fellow is still green but will be a true packer in the near future!  With his limited show experience, he is eligible for everything.  This is a very special guy and has proven he can bring home the blue over fences!
