Riley is an awesome partner. He has a super personality, excellent trainability, and natural uphill balance. He has a great work ethic and really enjoys learning new things. He is really a sweet natured stallion. He loves to go to shows, and usually takes a nap as soon as his stall is bedded! I think he likes to be well rested before any appearances. Ha
His Sire "Bogey" is said to have this same sweet nature, but lucky for me Riley didn’t get his height from his father. Talk about presence; standing 19'2h I don’t think he would have found it as easy to get around the dressage arena! Riley usually leaves every show with a few new fans; many can’t believe he is a Shire/Thoroughbred cross!
