Horse of the Week: Rintoo, 9-year-old Canadian Warmblood Gelding FOR SALE

Hi everyone!

With this little break in between show season and moving south for the winter, we thought now would be a great time to really highlight all the wonderful horses we have for sale or lease at the farm. So, for the next few weeks we will highlight a different horse here on the blog!

Up first is Rintoo!  Rintoo is a 9-year-old, bay Canadian Warmblood gelding standing around 16.3h. Rintoo is best suited as an Equitation Horse and/or a Children's/Adult Hunter.

Recently, Rintoo won Best Equitation Horse at the Show at the Mid-Atlantic Equitation Festival and his rider, Katie was Champion in the Adult Eq., won the Adult Rider Championship, won the M&S Adult Medal, was 3rd in the Ariat Adult Medal and was the Highest Scoring Finalist at the show.

Here is video of his winning round:
