Taurus made a big impression at the 2019 Westphalian stallion inspection with his self-carriage, tact, uphill canter and big walk. A complete and functional horse with three above average basic gaits, a good carrying hind leg and a good use of the body. Characteristics that are not self-evident in contemporary dressage horse breeding. The young stallion trotted around confidently and was thus awarded a Premium at the main inspection of the Westfaler Verband. To the delight of the many fans!
Also with his beautiful world-class dressage pedigree, Taurus makes a big impression and is a popular stallion!
