"Rio" is an exceptional 3 year old gelding who has been well socialised and raised and is now ready to go on and excel in any sphere. He would particularly excel in the dressage sphere, but the P.R.E is a versatile breed and they also show great talent for jumping.
He naturally uses his back to move forward and has a fantastic, trainable attitude and elastic paces. He is very correct in conformation with a good topline and fabulous big, straight and balanced movement.
This horse is really one in a million, and an excellent opportunity to buy a top class PRE horse without importing from Spain. Currently standing at 15.2 at 3 years old, expected to make 16hh/16.1hh or possibly a shade above. This breed tends to continue growing until around 7 years old, with most of the time between 4 and 7 being filling out, and perhaps a little extra height so may end up around 16.2/16.3.
He has done horse agility etc getting him used to different environments and circumstances and takes everything in his stride. He has been sat on (including bareback in the field without a headcollar on - he really does take EVERYTHING in his stride!) but not backed yet as he is still maturing.
He is happy living in or out, alone or in company. He has been kept in a couple of different environments, including a farm where he wasn't phased by the machinery or animals in any way. He is very sweet and loving, and loves to be around people, but has a good understanding of personal space.
He is now ready to go to a new home and spend the next year working with a new owner and be formally backed over Winter. He is a fantastic, trainable blank canvas for anyone to take forward into the profession of their choosing.
He is impeccably bred with Calificado lines, and is registered with BAPSH - his breeding can be seen online on LG ANCCE (breeding attached).
This is a very sad sale of a fantastic, top quality horse. Serious enquiries only. I am open to realistic offers for this amazing horse. He is ONLY for sale due to a change in my personal circumstances.
