From her first jump through a chute, Bijou’s natural style shown as a 10! She has tight, square knees, a lovely expression and bascule and great finish behind. Her steady canter is as rhythmical to the fence as it is away from it. Her leads are balanced and her canter correctly pushes from behind. Bijou is light in your hand and goes in a straight-forward plain snaffle bit. She is smart and seeks to figure out the answer to whatever question you are asking of her. She is brave and trusting.
At Chez Jacroux, our mission is to bring along top young hunter prospect to become safe riding and handling partners. As a yearling, Bijou began the process of true halter breaking with Dave Clarke: giving to pressure, following her human as her leader, respecting human space and requests. She has been roped, ponied and packed on trails and has some trail experience. Bijou trailer loads like a dream, ties and stands for grooming (including the vacuum), bathing, and shoeing.
