Dunrobin Rio Grande
Dark bay filly born 28th November 2018
EST height 15.3/16hh

By the well known and outstanding Stallion Kinnordy Gym Bello - Hanoverian Stallion by Gymnastik Star / Graf Landau. He hails from the famous ā€˜Gā€™ line known for producing highly talented dual-purpose horses for both jumping and dressage competition. (Last Photo)

Out of multi-talented and proven Sport Horse, Dunrobin Santa Fe - Competed with wins and placings up to 3star Eventing/1.20m SJ. She always showed a fantastic, careful technique with a scopey and tight front end over a jump which always gained peoples attention. Her consistent results speak for themselves. (3rd and 2nd to last photo)

This gorgeous filly has been professionally handled right from a foal. She has had basic handling and is starting to be introduced to new things, furthering her education which she is taking in her stride.
Rio has an incredible nature and is super to handle. She has shown a very willing attitude and curiosity to learning and picks things up quickly. She is growing into a stunning, well put together filly who always draws the attention of anyone around her.
She has 3 beautiful and correct paces with a balanced and floating trot and a large striding gallop.
She loads and travels well on a float, tie-up, trim feet, wash, plait and enjoys a good groom.
Rio has had one session of lunging which she started to pick up in less than 5 minutes, once again proving her positive attitude towards learning and her fantastic trainability.

Recently when she travelled to a new property she quickly settled into the new environment and was happy sleeping in the sun. When asked to move out she never got wound up or upset, but was just happy to be out with people doing something different.

Backed by her proven bloodlines, Rio is a very special filly who was purposely bred to become a quality performance horse.
With the right training she has the potential to become a stunning performance horse and with the right riding take a lucky ambitious rider far.

Will only be sold to buyers willing to spend and take the time needed in handling and training of a young horse to set them up for the future. Preferably looking for a performance home as this mare has potential to burn, however, a loving and caring home is most important.

A special discounted deal for her being professionally started under saddle with us can be made for when she is ready to be started.
We all wish to see our horses succeed in their new home, therefore, we always offer ongoing support and advice.

She will continue her handling and training to ensure she has the best head start in her new home.
Does have a small scar on her chest only seen by very few dotted white hairs from a superficial cut when she was a foal.
