“Rio” - Leased Out
16 hands : 5 year old : Warmblood : Gelding
Rio is a 5 year old American Warmblood (Belgian x TB) gelding standing 16 hands high. Rio is a sweet, gentle, and kind soul. He is confidently schooling first level dressage, with all of the makings to go higher, and has been jumped up to 3’. Rio has been a staple in our lesson program this year, teaching everyone from those trotting cross rails to those looking to hone in on their dressage skills. This easygoing, lovable horse is simple and safe both in the ring and out on the trails. He is also one of the smoothest and most comfortable horses around!
In the ring, Rio is simple and straightforward. He is the perfect mix of whoa and go, and is always happy to do what is asked of him. Rio is light in the bridle and will easily go in a frame or stretch on a long rein. He knows basic lateral work and would be a great candidate for someone looking to move up the levels. Rio has been started over fences and has the cutest front end and square knees. He is as honest and simple as they come. Rio is often ridden by the children and lesson students. He can take a joke and does not get bent out of shape when a rider is still learning and gaining confidence.
Off property, Rio is always happy to explore new places. He enjoys trail riding and hunter paces. Rio will lead or follow, and ride in the middle of the pack. He will cross water, go over bridges, through tunnels, and is safe in traffic.
In the barn, Rio is friendly and mannerly. He enjoys attention and bring groomed. He stands to be groomed, tacked, braided, and bathed. He is the first to come up to you in the pasture and is overall a real love bug. Rio is happy living inside or out and is the same horse if he is ridden every day or once a week. When turned out, Rio goes in a mixed herd of mares and geldings and gets along well with everyone. He’s great guy who can go any direction.
