New Millenium Nando

Stats: 2004 Haflinger gelding, owned by the Ludwig family

Special talent: Magic tricks. Escaping his stall, opening his window, and making his lead line or reins disappear (in his mouth!). Curious and smart, Nando loves to explore everything.

Program strength: Nando has “been there, done that!” 4-H showing, jumping, dressage, driving, parades, and beach riding highlight his past experiences. At Greystone Manor TRC, Nando patiently encourages independent steering at the walk as well as the basics of trot. He teaches his people about patience too.

Funny memory: The first day he wore a grazing muzzle, Nando looked like Pooh with a honeypot stuck on his nose. No escaping this trick until winter!
