16 Rio!



Meet Rio

We believe Rio is a Thoroughbred-Warmblood cross and that he’s between 16-18 years old. He is a super smart, gentle, brave, amazing gelding. He’s quite accomplished having shown successfully in rated shows up to 1m even as recently as last summer, did well at low level USEA rated events, was my daughter’s first eventing horse, a US Pony Club national champion with his previous owner, Jackson, and competed with the Penn State University Dressage team. He has helped more than one rider through the Pony Club levels. He’s an extremely efficient jumper, never jumping a bit over what’s needed and rarely tapping a rail, and his canter is smooth as glass. Rio has a huge heart and he’s got a great sense of humor. He’s loving and affectionate and wise. He’s demanding when it comes to treats. He’s steady and the kind of horse that you’d feel safe riding into battle on. He’s the kind of horse you never worry about when your daughter rides off to the cross country course by herself. Jane and I both appreciate his intelligence and unending reliability. Jane was recently contacted by Rio’s previous owner on Instagram—and we were surprised and amazed to know she had rescued him at auction. Now retired, he is a wonderful and respected family friend who we love very much.
