    **SOLD** Striking Dressage Horse

    HorsesDressage Horses£ 2,000Horse's name Rio

    Rio is a 16.2hh 9 year old Irish Sports Horse gelding.


    I bought him 2 years ago to event but he was always happiest in the dressage phase, and he has mild arthritis in his right stifle so I decided against continuing to jump him competitively. This will not affect him as a dressage horse however and any potential buyer would be more than welcome to speak to my vet.

    He's competed successfully at unaffiliated Prelim and Novice, consistently scoring high 60's and into the 70's. I'm not much of a dressage rider so he will go much further with someone who knows what they're doing. He has super paces, has always got high marks for his walk work in particular and is a nice mover. He has basic lateral work in place and established walk - canter transitions. Working at Novice/Elementary level at home and is fit and ready to go.

    He's easy to do in all ways, good to load, clip, handle, lives in/out, hacks alone & in company. He takes confidence from his rider so would suit a confident, experienced rider. He is however currently being ridden by a 14 year old girl who he really looks after.


    **I have massively reduced the price (was previously advertised for £6500) as in the last 2 weeks he has started mildly headshaking when ridden. I don't have the time to investigate myself so this could be a chance to buy a really lovely horse at a fraction of his true worth.**
