3 year old stunning Friesian Sport Horse (50% Friesian/50% Fell). Fell ponies are a rare breed known for their high stamina, intelligence, hardiness and their lively and hardworking temperament. He is registered and microchipped with the Canadian Friesian Horse Association. Sired by a Star Friesian stallion and out of an accomplished Fell Pony mare. Lots of hair and feathers. Not only do both parents have top quality breeding, they also have proven themselves to be excellent sport horses with long lists of accomplishments.... (read more) Rio has been handled daily since birth and has worked with a trainer weekly since six months old. He has had extensive groundwork and liberty training done with him. He has done some mountain trail work. He has excellent ground manners and is a very polite boy who is eager to please.
Rio’s personality is truly one of a kind and this cannot be emphasized enough. He absolutely loves people. He is always there to greet you, and will come running from the back of the field when his name is called. Nothing phases him; he is good with tarps, plastic bags, umbrellas, and other typically “scary” objects. Loves water. He has a good head on him and approaches new situations with curiosity instead of fear.
Rio stands well for the vet/farrier (has excellent hooves) and loads/unloads easily from the trailer. He takes a bit easily, wears a saddle, is unphased by flopping stirrups. Rio has been backed but not worked due to age and constant growth. He has a fabulous foundation for his next partner in life. Five-star home for this boy is top priority.
