When Robert Moore learned that the request, sent to Zakharov Stables by staff member Cadence Riddle, was accepted, he was thrilled. Being located on the farm for the Karelian Masters put him in perfect position to be able to try out the much anticipated stallion.

Kosjtjej looked like a dream. He acted like it too. Saddling was easy and the young man was anxious to hop on board. Though the farm was hoping for a new Show Jumper or Three Day Eventer, this one was too young to be tested over obstacles. It made no difference.

After setting up some poles on the ground, Robert was off with the brute.

A flick of the wrist and they sprung into an extended canter, rider paying close attention to the responsiveness of his mount.
