16hh rising 5yo Irish military vehicle! Top quality allrounder/hunter.
Rhino is an incredible stamp of a horse that is getting increasingly harder to find. A compact, stocky all-terrain vehicle without being heavy. Good solid limbs without having tree trunks. Plenty of barrel and chest without feeling like you're riding a table - more like an armchair! Very smart eye-catching model with clean limbs that could potentially show.
Has started hunting now this season with a small lady rider in a snaffle but is well built and would happily carry a man all day. Has done several fun rides this year including one with a very novice and unbalanced rider and Rhino really looked after him, jumping everything asked and just sticking with the group, remaining sane and sensible. However due to his age and type we would prefer to sell him to a confident and capable rider who can build his confidence and not take advantage of his good nature.
Although he's built like a tank, Rhino has shown enough movement, scope and athleticism to potentially event in the off season along with all other riding club activities. Shows some good moments on the flat with lovely paces and potential for a smart test but he hasn't yet been hammered in the school. Very much a blank slate ready to produce.
Schooling over showjumps and fillers. Cross country schooled including ditches, water, banks, hedges, corners, shoulders and all manner of fences, jumping everything first time. He takes everything on as if he has done it before and is super bold, the more you dare him the better he goes.
Good to hack, good on the roads and in open spaces, alone and in company. Good to do on the ground in all ways and a lovely sweet friendly chap who is always happy to see you.
Rhino is absolutely not an idiots ride - think streamlined tank! He is forward off the leg, responsive, and bold. He is looking for a confident, capable rider to get cracking on with and continue to build him up. He is not the sort who needs to take his confidence from his rider and is happy to help out when needed but he is a green, young horse who doesn't want to be taken advantage of.
A seriously smart horse and a type that is getting very difficult to find! Serious enquiries to please call ONLY. TEXTS AND MESSAGES MAY NOT BE ANSWERED. All video can be found on the Amy Derber Equestrian Facebook page by searching 'Rhino'
