riverbendA sincere thank you to Bill and Kelly Emmett for their purchase of our dear Ben.  While we hated to let him go, we know he went to the best of all possible homes.

Riverbend 2 yo 16.1H Holsteiner x TB gelding, inspected, approved and branded Oldenburg. Bred in the purple for eventing, Ben was an embryo transfer baby out of the TB mare, Star Evans and the Holsteiner stallion Riverman. Riverman is perennially a top ranked sire of eventers and showjumpers in the US. His dam is approved by both Oldenburg, NA and the Belgian Warmblood Association who approved her when she was 14 years old, naming her the high scoring mare of her division. She has Roberto in her pedigree in addition to Hail to Reason and Princequillo on the top and bottom. She throws a long striding, world class canter in addition to a super temperament. He is bred for the upper levels of the sport but what we seek for him is a special home that will take the time appropriate for a young horse to mature and progress at a reasonable pace, he is very special. Should mature around 17.2+
