Riverson 11/22/20115 yo, 17.2H Oldenburg gelding by Riverman. How to describe this horse? His presence, personality and ability are remarkable. He is an amazing mover with an above average walk and trot and a heavenly canter. He is one of our homebreds and he just exudes quality and grace. He has been started very slowly and correctly, and has never been pushed but has always been asked for something in his training. The result is a horse that delights in his work and gives it an honest try every time he is ridden. Perhaps the most outstanding thing about him is his balance – for a big growing horse, he is amazingly balanced and is a true uphill ride in all his gaits which are light, supple and forward. He is a genuine pleasure to ride; sensitive to your aids without being hot or spooky. He’s a very tall, leggy horse – which adds to his elegant impression and he has good bone and a HUGE foot. He began showing lightly this summer getting the high score of the day across all levels at a local PVDA show with a 76.8% and was high score champion. He’s had two events, a 5th at his first at BN and a 2nd at novice a week later. He had the best score of the day (again!) in dressage across all levels. He is an absolutely brilliant jumper with the technique and heart to make a make a world class event horse! His sire, Riverman is the leading sire of event horses in the US for the second year in a row. Brilliance, balance and the heart to work for you-this is one extraordinary horse! Only for sale to a very special home.

Congratulations To Laura and Abby of Michigan on their purchase of this fabulous superstar
