Gentry

Gentry (aka G-Love)


Gentry, August 2015

My current love of my life horse is Gentry. I purchased him on September 2nd, 2014, after I decided to take a brief hiatus from our weekend getaway at my family's lake house and go try him. I instantly liked him and agreed to purchase him with a one week trial period. He passed the pre-purchase exam with flying colors and his gentle, calm, non-reactive personality won me over so I decided to keep him as my next prospect and future family/husband/kid horse.

Gentry was born May 5th, 2008. He is by Gold Bayou T B (Thoroughbred) and out of Princess Fiona (Clydesdale) and was bred by Seven Mile Ranch in Ronan, Montana, (www.allbreedpedigree.com). He was started as a five year old during the summer of 2013 with 30 days under saddle training, and had just a handful of rides before I purchased him in 2014. He is registered as Gentry with the Performance Horse Registry (PHR) and has his lifetime card with the USEF.

Gentry's Sire, Gold Bayou T B

Baby Gentry and
dam Princess Fiona.
