Say hello to Ria

Ria is ready to find a home as a ridden horse.

*Ria is not located at our Bransby Horses site*

Ria is looking for a loving home with either a competent teen or adult rider who has experience in bringing on young horses. She is a lovely girl to ride but is still very green and as such she needs a calm, sympathetic rider to help her continue with her education to reach her full potential. She benefits from being in a consistent routine with a variety of work asked of her. She always tries 110% in anything asked of her and she enjoys a good pamper and groom.

In the right home, she has the potential to be a good all-rounder to enjoy clinics, pleasure rides and shows with. She currently has some basic schooling and will continue with her education while she looks for a new home. She is learning to soften in the neck while being ridden and would benefit from continued work in this regard. While early in her jumping education, she is honest to a fence and keeps a good rhythm.

*Ria has a maximum rider weight of 10 stone/ 63kg*
