Riley (aka Rapidash)

This talented affectionate, elegant 16.2h Rosenthal/Art Deco grandson, is a beautiful mover, with a “floaty canter” who is elegant, athletic, focused, and personable  

He has smooth gaits making him an easy ride, and coupled with his elegant, expressive movement, he would be a very competitive equitation mount. He has been under saddle for about 2 years, loads and hauls well, and settles into new environments quickly.  Since the COVID-19 restrictions, he has been working regularly on our breeding ranch in Winters, doing hill work, jumping gymnastics/bounces and doing Training Level dressage. He has just started jumping under saddle, since he was slow to develop physically, and he is picking it up nicely. At 16.2h he will be a very fancy hunter, jumper or equitation horse. He has no vices, but because he is still green, he is suitable for an intermediate rider with a trainer.


His maternal grandsire is Rosenthal who, while alive, was a nationally ranked hunter sire.


His mother also carried the lines of Welt Klasse 

Information on Welt Klasse:

 His paternal grandfather is Art Deco, who while alive was a nationally ranked hunter sire. or


His grandmother is Chef Melissa (JC approved German Oldenberger Mare with European TB descendents such as Saros, Fallow, Pardal, Olden Times, Honeyway, Princely Gift, Ratification, and Precipitation.)
