Description of your horse:

Rio is a lovely TB type who is currently competing successfully at 2 star level eventing and 1.25m level show jumping.

He has recently won the CIC Two Star at Swan River International Horse Trials and has many placings and wins in both eventing and straight show jumping.

He would be best suited to a capable junior/young rider or amateur adult wanting a safe reliable horse to learn the eventing ropes on. Although he is currently competing at two star level, he would happily be taken back to lower levels and come back up again with a new rider. Rio is also handsome enough that he could spend some time in the show ring as he has a real look at me factor that always turns heads anywhere he goes.

He is a straightforward ride, but like most TB does require a capable rider to keep him in check if need be.

Rio is easy to do in every way, great traveller, easy for the farrier, no vices, will happily stand tied to the truck all day alone or with company. He is a lovely horse to have in the stable, always greets you with a neigh no matter what time of day you come out.

This is a sad sale as Rio is a very loved member of our family, but I feel he has so much to offer a new rider coming up to FEI level eventing, a job that I think he would love.
