Ontario aka "Rio" is an 8 year old draft/thoroughbred gelding standing approx. 16.2 hands high. He is easy to be around in all situations. Rio both rides and drives phenomenally, this year he even played his hand in hill topping with a local hunt club. He has been out many times for not only simple trail rides with the hounds but also fox hunting 101 and capping a number of times. He stands happily with the hounds and moves off willingly in the group! He shows potential to excel in many different disciplines. He stands on the cross ties to be tacked and groomed. He's a goof ball with a kind, sweet personality. He has given many carriage rides at a local business and is experienced under harness. He is simple to drive whether going single or in pairs, including as the lead horse. He has been on and off the roads and highways & is extremely traffic safe. Under saddle he has three comfortable gaits. He was recently introduced to crossrails and jumps a few times, so he is familiar. He likes to move on, but he is responsive and willing to take it down a notch as instructed. He is fabulous out on the trails, he's extremely willing to lead and will also follow a small or large group, he has been through rivers, creeks, and woods, as well as having been out in more mountainous trails and steep cliff environments. He will go out alone as well. Rio is a nice, honest, all around horse who will make someone very happy. He is safe and sound. He loads, clips, ties, bathes, and stands for the farrier. He may be large but he is definitely "low man" on total pole out in the field, he doesn't bother anyone and no one bothers him, ultimately he is good at keeping to himself. Rio would make a lovely horse for an enthusiastic rider or driver looking to take it to the next level! Located in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
