"Rio" - USEA Novice Eventing show record, sold as a low level jumper to current owner. "Pedregal" was diagnosed with kissing spine in 2020. Current owner had him in very light work, mostly trail rides and ring work 1-2x per week. July 15th 2021 - Brought back into full work 6 days a week. Shock wave therapy, and equioxx have been used to keep ahead of any tightness in the back as we develop his fitness. Future disciplines - low level jumper, dressage, trail horse or just riding horse. August 28th - Hunt trail ride with Middleburg hunt. September 2nd - CDCTA Dressage show at Great Meadow. Priced to allow future owner the ability to continue routine care to keep Rio sound and happy. Veterinary recommendation for jumping is to stay under 3'. Full vet records available. He is holding up to the full work load, and I hope to continue to take him out as much as possible until he finds a new home. Overall Rio a lovely horse who likes a job and enjoys human interaction.
Snaffle mouth, more of a kick ride. He is personable and enjoys attention. He likes a pasture mate. Race name "Pedregal". Located in The Plains VA at Dark Horse Stables VA
