Grace is absolutely STUNNING! This is an exceptional filly with lots of size, but also extremely elegant and feminine.  If you are looking for a strong Hunter In Hand or Hunter Under Saddle prospect -- this one is sure to be a winner. 

Grace is a  slow-legged, strong youngster with tremendous bone and an excellent future ahead of her in the show ring. Her winning bloodlines speak of great things to come for this lovely filly.

Grace's mother, Cleo (Joan Van Art), is a 16-1 hand beauty by Indian Artifacts (AQHA World Champion and 2 x Res Congress Champion). Her first two foals are amazing -- with the oldest foal (2012 gelding) earning a World Championship in Non-Pro Hunter Longe Line, as well 2013 Reichert Reserve Champion in Open Longe Line Hunter, and Reserve AppaloosaWorld Champion Hunter In Hand Yearling Gelding. Her other brother (2103 stallion) will be competing this year at Nationals, NSBA World, and Apppaloosa World in Longe Line and Hunter In Hand.

Her sire, Hands Of A Hero, is a multiple World/National/NSBA Champion in Hunter Under Saddle,  Hunter In Hand and Over Fences, as well as Silver Medallion Producer in his first foal crop of 4 foals!

I expect that Grace will mature at 16-1+ hands and will be an incredible Hunter Under Saddle, In Hand and Over Fences prospect. She will also be eligible for the color class futurities, offering more opportunity to compete and win!

And lest you hadn't notice, Grace also has AMAZING color with the perfect amount of BLING!!
