Lego is adored by dressage judges for his balance and style, and his comfortable handiness allows him to be a phenomenal cross-country ride. Lego is schooling all 2nd-3rd level dressage movements, and will pack around a 3' course. He is comfortable alone or with a group, and is excellent with hounds. He is completely sound, with clean legs and great hooves.

He won from 6 furlongs to 1 1/16 miles under all kinds of conditions.
