For Sale – MANNKATO

MANNKATO – 2001 KWPN gelding 

Lexington Carriage Classic 2019 – Working Class, Gentleman to Drive

PLEASE NOTE: Kato is no longer available to a driving home. He has been retired from driving and is only looking for a riding partner.

Mannkato could be the unicorn you are looking for! Perfect for the dressage rider looking for a trusted partner to move up with.

“Kato” holds a current USEF passport, yet the mileage of a horse half his age! No maintenance required. Kato possesses a metronome in his head and rocking horse canter. In ridden dressage, he has been shown through 3rd Level, and schooled some 4th Level.

In combined driving, Kato is an FEI level driving horse and represented the USA at the World Championships at Piber in 2016 with Sterling D.B. Graburn. They were the highest placed American pair.

Kato is not currently in regular work – he is being ridden occasionally as schedules permit. He has not been asked for more than First Level work under saddle for approximately 6 years, yet he performed clean flying changes the day we took video with just a head toss.
