Adoption Overview $500


For someone who is looking for a bit more of a challenge, Rio is a gorgeous 16 year old American Saddlebred gelding who is looking for his forever home. He is well broke under saddle and very responsive to aids, but he can be a bit of a scaredy cat, so we would not recommend him for a beginner. Rio does well with a confident rider, someone who can help him work through those fear issues and whom he can trust when he feels afraid. With the right forever person, he will be confident enough to take on the world! Rio will be leaving in February for foster training in Maine with Horses with Hope. You can follow his progress at
