On 21st October 2016 we welcomed Rio to our herd! A beautiful three and a half year old bay gelding bred in the UK - my 'dream horse' since 2007 when I travelled to Spain on my first Spanish Riding Holiday. I fell in love with their character, strength and ease of travelling over the high peaks of Catalonia! Ideal for Exmoor!
Rio is progressing well with his early training, and a series of his training videos can be seen on Vimeo - https://vimeo.com/album/4226589
Today (15th December 2016) he trotted ridden for the first time, around the Bossington lanes! Calm, relaxed, controllable, and well on the way to more serious riding! He will be a great lad!
Please revisit his page to view his progress or go to the Vimeo album https://vimeo.com/album/4226589 wehre there are more than 50 short training videos. Get inspired, and use some of these ideas to train your horses.
3rd February - 2017
Rio has now enjoyed a few cantering rides through the woods - you can view his progress on Vimeo or watch the following two videos on his early training:
