Back in November, we introduced you to a horse whose story started off a bit rough and tumble, but, thanks to the devotion of a caring owner, an unlikely jumping prodigy was born. We are thrilled to reveal to you the next model in our Limited Edition lineup – Gascon the Great.
This special grey Paso Fino gelding is pushing his breed’s boundaries and showing everyone just how much he also excels in the jumper ring! In October of 2018, Gascon was rescued from a seizure case that involved 50 other horses. Untrusting, fearful, and neglected, he made his way to Horses Without Humans Rescue where he found Jennifer Cefalu.
After working with Gascon, Jennifer saw something truly special in him that set him apart from many other rescues she’d worked with. She found out he loved to canter and jump. After long, sometimes challenging, days of training Gascon, Jennifer felt he was ready to show the world what he could do. The pair went on to win their first 2’6 jumper class in 2019. After formally registering him with the PFHA they showed at the Paso Fino Grand National Championship later in the year and ended up 3rd in the rescue geldings class. The following year they came back as reserve champions and now continue to receive top ribbons in both Paso Fino breed shows and jumper shows!
Though bred for traditional Paso Fino classes, Gascon is showing the world just how versatile he can be. Against all odds, Gascon has gone from a neglected and unhandled young horse to a versatile top show horse who continues to break the mold of his breeds standards, proving that the possibilities for him are endless! He is presented to BreyerFest fans on Jennifer Scott’s new Paso Fino mold (#817) and all ticket holders will have access to purchase this handsome boy. VIP ticket buyers will have the added perk of being able to pre-select and pre-purchase Gascon, if he’s at the top of their wish lists.
We’ll see you right back here on the BreyerFest Blog tomorrow!
