Panama Red became a project horse in October of 2018. Approximately eight years old, Red is a gelded Azteca (Andalusian/Quarter Horse) cross. Growing a lustrous red coat with black stockings, and full black mane and tail, Panama Red stands at 15.1 hands. Gentle and quiet, Panama Red is a quick learner! He has a lovely, smooth and forward movement. Whether English or Western, Panama Red has the makings of an all round lower level horse.
Panama Red’s chill behavior when introduced to new environments wasn’t a fluke at his first show. Schooling at Woodside, camping out at Eventful Acres, and showing at the 2019 August Woodside Horse Trials proved his steady demeanor to be a consistent trait! He also possesses enthusiasm, ring presence, a ten canter to the jumps, and a good head in abundance!
Lisa Avila takes him regularly to jump with Alexis Helffrich of Cheval Training at Graceland Equestrian Center.
