Rio - Band B
16.2hh 8yo black KWPN gelding Vleut x Ferro. Top quality amateur's sport horse. A very good looking guy!
Super mover, working very well on the flat with 3 balanced and rhythmical paces. Uphill canter, good mouth. Nice enough to do pure dressage.
Bold and scopey both cross country and showjumping. A real confidence giver over fences, jumps all fillers and trays including open water. Rio has been jumped by nervous and novice riders and by someone who hadn't jumped a fence in 6 years. He is rideable to a fence and takes you in without being strong. Auto-changes round a course. Holds his rhythm well, approaches in the same rhythm he leaves in and is careful without over-jumping. Would bring a less confident rider on or be a strong competitive prospect for a more confident rider.
Recently registered BS and won his first two classes with 2 different riders. A very competitive prospect, ready to go out and jump Newcomers. Will continue to be produced and competed until sold and price will increase accordingly.
Bold cross country with good length of stride. Tackles combinations well and is good through ditches, banks, water and different types of fences. Ready to go BE this season and is a strong contender for Grassroots but will progress further with the right rider.
Great to hack, a real go anywhere do anything type. Good on the roads and isn't spooky or silly, we use him as a 'spare' for hacking that we know absolutely anyone can ride. Cuddly and affectionate character who enjoys attention. Plays well with others, has been turned out with mares and geldings.
