17 hand, registered Hanoverian son of two time Olympic qualified Show jumper,  Rio Grande, former mount of Canadian Gold Medalist, Eric Lamaze.
He is an exceptional athlete with natural jumping talent, three outstanding gaits and a temperament second to none. His jumping ability has been proven in the show ring,  where he has met all challenges willingly and very bravely.
Rip'n Rio Z has surpased our expectations this season with such a huge effort, and a very  professional temperament on the road.  It is impossible for most to believe he is a stallion!

Not only is he a scopey, talented jumper,  but also a gorgeous mover with wonderful conformation and a proven producer as a breeding stallion.
He has many talented offspring with his qualities, who are also sharing in his success.
Just like him they are very rideable, trainable, beautiful,  with solid minds, conformation and of course ability.

Rip'n Rio Z willingly jumps whatever he meets on course, we are confident that he can compete at the highest level in the future.

Serious Purchase inquiries welcome!
