**ANDREW WILSON & CO ONLINE AUCTION APRIL 22nd-23rd**
LOT NUMBER: 17
BREED: Stock Horse
HEIGHT (Approx) 15.2h
DESCRIPTION (as provided by vendor)
I have been really up and down with the sale of this horse as he is a great horse to have around super handy to just jump on and go for a trail ride by yourself or others, he's done mustering and cow cutting clinics. Rio is 15.2hh and turns 16 this year.
I haven't ridden Rio for quiet a few months, hes just been wasting in the paddock and I would rather he being used then just sitting around, he loves to get out on the trails and he is quiet a brave horse out and about.
Rio does require an intermediate rider as when he is out of work he can be lazy, but he has no nasty in him no bite, buck, kick. Easy to catch and saddle up.
When feeding Rio he does need to be paddock separate only because he can be bossy to other horses at feed time, although right now he is paddocked with 2 mares and 2 filly's with out a problem.
This is a hard sale as I do love the boy but he loves being ridden and I dont have any time for him.
I'm hoping for him to go to someone who wants to do lots of trail riding but who is an intermediate rider, he has had beginners on him with no problems when he is in full work but with him not being in work he can be lazy and not go forwards unless pushed.
