Rio is now living in the Kootenay's on a big ranch and doing fantastic! He has adjusted wonderfully to the change. His owner plans on using him for trail riding all over the hundreds of acres of crown land around them. His owner used to do endurance riding on Arabians in the past and just love the breeds. They are shaping up to be a wonderful match! Congratulations gentleman!

Rio is a purebred, 15 y/o Arabian gelding. He was used as an endurance horse for years and is very well broke. He is sound and UTD. Would make a great pleasure or even low-level Dressage horse now. Very sweet boy. He is prancy and an absolute attention hog! Best for intermediate riders, but he is FUN! Absolutely full of personality and flair.
UPDATE: He is definitely silly with a rider, but did great considering we were testing him when a full-fledged thunderstorm hit! He gives to the bit and bends to the leg wonderfully! He just needs an intermediate plus rider, but he will make someone a wonderful pleasure horse!
