Meet Riley

Riley is 16.1hh, 11 year old Thoroughbred gelding who has never raced. He was a late bloomer and is still a little green so would need an experienced rider to continue with his education. He has a loving nature and doesnt kick, buck or bite. Riley is a forward moving horse, very responsive to the aids and a quick learner. He would make a great dressage horse due to being quite supple and energetic. It is a sad sale but my lack of experience is impeding his education so I feel he will do much better in a knowledgeable home. We attend ARC on a regular basis and he is very well behaved and seems to enjoy the group environment. We recently did our first dressage test and he got 68%. He is a special horse however he did have colic surgery 1 1/2 years ago and has been left with small hernia. This doesnt affect him in any way and could be corrected. He has never had an episode since.
