Catherston Springsteen

Catherston Springsteen is perhaps one of the most exciting horses Catherston Stud has bred to date. He is an eye-catching horse with tremendous presence, a beautiful head and neck and good length of rein. His paces are bold, expressive and off the ground and that is what makes him so special.
