2017, 16.3h gray Cleveland Bay/Thoroughbred mare

By Frostyoak Hampton (Cleveland Bay) out of Martini Shine (TB) by Will He Shine, G2 winner by Silver Deputy, who goes directly back to Northern Dancer through the sire line.
‘River’ is a very athletic, really nice mare. Although still green, she’s a good mover, a very good jumper and very brave.

She’s fox-hunted and while in our program she’s been doing a lot of dressage and grid-work. She has a good attitude, and does basic lateral work and goes in a nice contact. She has three very good gaits and has been off-property to school. Will go to her first horse trials at the end of March.

River is very straightforward and forward riding. She is perfect in the barn with impeccable manners. Clip/blacksmith/hacks out alone.

River would suit a pro now or an experienced amateur in an established program. She’s extremely talented with a good brain, and has been brought along slowly. Only for sale as the owner needs to downsize.

💫 Please contact Stephen directly – text is best – cell 703-431-3422 for all the details. Located in The Plains, VA.
