Rio’s Rainbow TYG(AKA Oliver)

2005 Elegant, 17.3 h 2005 delightful gelding will be a premier amateur or child’s hunter type, but could also rise to the top of the eventing field, with his fancy movement and careful, athletic jumping ability. He is a trusting, affectionate, excellent mover, with a co-operative mind.  He has a good work ethic and tries hard to please. See him jumping after one month of jumping at



His father was Rio Grande, who was the #1 hunter jumper sire in the US before his demise.  His successful career included representing Canada in the Olympics, and numerous jumping winnings at Spruce Meadows and across the USA.   Rio’s offspring have been very. very successful in the hunter or jumper rings and are prized for their love of jumping and sensible minds.  Rio’s babies are difficult to acquire, and seldom sold, which makes this gelding a very good investment.
