Very Smooth Naturally Gaited big Pinto; Said to be Nat. Spotted Horse
AD#: 3420353
Seller: 575683
Rio is a 'people horse', being very friendly and always coming over to the corral fence to say 'hi' and get some attention or maybe a peppermint candy. He has good, balanced conformation with excellent bone and straight legs. He is strikingly beautiful and very flashy, with his vivid black and white markings and his deep blue right eye. His present owners bought Rio a couple of years ago to be the husband's trail horse, but subsequent health issues in the family have had Rio spend more time standing around in his corral than out on the trails. He is being offered for sale to a good home ONLY because of his owner's health issues and Rio still being a joy to work with on the ground and ride, as you can see in the several home-made videos which are included here. Rio had not been ridden for over a year - and he was mannerly and sensible for the videos, so will only get better with more attention and riding in his new home. Being a GAITED horse, Rio has rapid and smooth gaits and can leave an un-gaited horse in the dust when out on the trails, so that is something for his potential new owners to consider. He knows how to back and side-pass from the saddle, to open and close gates and also loads and hauls well. He is sound, an easy keeper, has been kept current on his worming and hoof care, where he is very respectful and good with the farrier. Rio ties quietly, stands well to groom, saddle, mount and dismount; and lives in the La Pine, Oregon area, a bit south of Bend. SEVERAL VIDEOS AVAILABLE; please just ask.
