Super quality prospect. She is incredibly well balanced for her age, powerful and active behind and is very forward and willing to work.

Her bloodlines include some of the best dressage and jumper producers in the world including Metall (sire of Uthopia), Ferro, Ramiro, Doruto, Nimmerdor and Furioso. Erania was just started under saddle. This confident little mare with BIG gaits would be the ideal choice for a petite dressage rider looking for a serious prospect to work up the levels.
