LORD IVANHOE "IVAN"

2005 16.3h Irish Sport Horse
Sired by Mine Lord Prince out of Escapade 

Ivan was bred and owned by Carol Girzaitis, but is now co-owned by Carol's sister Nancy and Kristen. Ivan is one of those horses that you wish everyone had an opportunity to ride a horse like him. He's all business under saddle, but is a complete "goober" in the barn and Kristen absolutely adores this horse! He has an incredible work ethic and is always looking to please!  Kristen is really excited about the future with this horse, especially since he is just full of natural talent!
