Dappled Palomino*Confidence Builder*Kid Safe*Super
“Rio” is everyone’s dream horse! Day in and day out, this handsome 9 year old palomino gelding is always a gentleman. “Rio” is the first horse that people seem to be drawn to when they first walk into the barn and always a favorite to ride because he is sooo user friendly! Been tested by kids and adult beginners and comes with their “100% approval” rating (their exact words, not mine). But he gets the same sort of reviews from more experienced horsemen/horsewomen as well. “Rio” has tons of experience in all sorts of scenarios and to keep it short and sweet, he is as solid as oak anywhere you go! Pays no mind to even the most chaotic settings – screaming kids, barking dogs, semi trucks, honking cars, or anything else of the sort. Out on the trail, you truthfully couldn’t ask for a nicer one to be horseback on. He is a “point and shoot” kind of horse – just point your hand where you want him to go, drop your reins and simply enjoy your ride. There’s not an ounce of nonsense to him. “Rio” will happily and quietly cross through water, maneuver through thick trees, is surefooted so he always makes his way safely through shifty terrain, walks over bridges, and has an independent mentality so he will go put solo into the world if you ride alone. However, if hitting the trails with a larger crowd is your style, he’s great riding side by side so you can visit with your friends! “Rio” is more than content to just be there.
“Rio” travels smooth and has a great handle. He stays soft and collected, melts right into his stops, true one-handed neck rein, slow jog, effortlessly catches his leads to lope circles either way, turns around both directions, side pass, and works a gate like a pro. As you can tell he’s well broke but is also simple enough for a beginner or someone with zero horse experience to hop on. He never gets in a hurry, only goes the speed that you want him to but is not lazy or stubborn in any way. Personally, I believe those things are crucial when you’re looking for a horse to help build confidence & learn to ride. I want someone to get off of a horse after a lesson/ride & be excited about the next time they get to get on – “Rio” works his magic every time! Not only does he have the looks, but he’s got the training & the brains to go right with it! With a background like his, that should come as no shock. He comes from a large working ranch in Nebraska & belonged to the 71 year old owner of it that said, & I quote “You know how hard it is to find a good dog or a good woman…? It’s even harder to find a good horse like this”. He has kept him around solely because of he could count on him for absolutely anything he needed no matter how long it had been since he was last on him & that he’d be safe. The ONLY reason “Rio” is for sale is because of his owners declining health that has gotten worse over the last year. Email ( [email protected] ) to buy this horse now
