Top 10 in both 2019 USDF and CDS Training Level Championships; 3rd place finish at the final test of the 4 year old CDS Futurity with 72.3%
Liriano is a darling young gelding with striking markings. He has been under saddle since late October of 2018. Liriano is a willing horse with three above average gaits with an especially uphill and balanced canter and ground covering walk.
He went to his first show in April 2019 and earned scores to 70% at training level. Since then he has scored multiple times in the 70's and even a score above 80%!
He would be best suited for a junior/young rider looking to take a horse through the levels, though he has enough talent for a professional too!
Liriano's sire, Licosto, a noble stallion in the Licoto XX Thoroughbred line. Boasting three impressive gaits, charm and elegance he has already been shown to be outstanding in competition. As a four year old at the national championships Licosto was placed in the finals with an overall score of 8.33 and a stride/gait score of 9.0. In 2009 he succeeded in winning 2nd place at the Westphalian Championships. Licosto was greatly demanded and listed at the highest price at the 2009 NRW Elite auction.
