Rio is a sweet, big boy that loves attention, is easy to ride and is ready to learn a second career. He retired sound from the track (he was a slow one and racing wasn't his thing) then sat in a paddock for 2 years before coming to me.
He is a true gentle giant and is as easy to ride as he is easy to handle on the ground. He has wonderful ground manners, ties, clips, bathes and loads well. He stands quietly at the mounting block, walks off quietly and doesn't require lunging before riding.... (read more) Although green, he is patient, forgiving of mistakes, well balanced, doing well with his leads and started on ground poles and small x's.
He is a beautiful mover on the flat and cute over fences. He is eager to please and takes all of his training in stride.
Rio is quickly taking to his new life as an up and coming show horse. He is going to be one that everyone will be pleased to have in their barn.
He gets along well with other horses in the turn outs and in the barn he has great barn manners, and no vices.
He has the potential to be a nice amature horse or under a trainer's supervision, he could handle a confident novice rider/owner.
