Rivervale Farm has been raising Warmblood Sport Horses for over 30 years. There are many of our horses winning in the Hunter, Jumper and Eventing world.

Rivervale horses have received excellent care and nutrition from birth. They are raised outside and are tough and healthy. They are not "hot house flowers"! They are brought into the barn, handled and worked with and then returned to their group pastures. They are in training with GRAND PRIX rider and USDF BRONZE, SILVER AND GOLD MEDALIST,  CRAIG HECKERT.  

Two year olds eating from our custom designed feeders.

These are super nice youngsters, from well planned breedings, sired by "rideable" stallions, out of quality mares. They are in training with a young horse specialist, who is also an accomplished competitor.  Our horses have very good reputations for being uncomplicated to ride and easy to get along with.

All of their pedigrees are on www.allbreedpedigree.com Just type the name in the horse query box.

References Available!

Our horses are priced very reasonably. This doesn't mean there is something wrong with them. The truth is that this is a horse business supported by the horses and that means sales have to happen. Give a Rivervale Farm horse a try. You won't be sorry.

Trainers and Agents: Give us a call. We will do our best to be fair to all parties but these prices do not include commissions.


RF Archer

5/6/15 Appaloosa Sport Horse Gelding.

By BJC Asher Seven, out of Fancy That PCH (Hanoverian) by For Paragon.

A super fancy gelding with the pedigree and ability to go to the top in sport. He may be the only Appaloosa in the country who has a Grandsire and Great Grandsire who were champion Grand Prix Show Jumpers. In fact his Great Grandsire, For Pleasure was a two time Olympic Gold Medallist and Hanoverian Stallion Of The Year! Archer is being started under saddle and is coming along well. We have gone slowly with him because of his size.


Archer is tall at 17 hands. He is good natured, cooperative, and absolutely beautiful!

Archer is registered with the Appaloosa Horse Club, #682048, the USEF #5392840 and is microchipped.

$11,500 - Price will increase with training.

Luminous a nice young prospect by the imported Hanoverian stallion Lion King. Her dam was a nice Appaloosa daughter of Mr. Lucky Again. Luminous has a very nice disposition, sweet and cooperative. She should mature 15.3 to 16 hands making her perfect for the person who wants a smaller horse with "big horse" gaits and ability. Luminous is starting her training now and is under saddle. She is coming along nicely.

Luminous has her lifetime registration with USEF and is microchipped.

RF Leilani

By Lion King, out of RF Maui by Meisterwind

Leilani is a beautiful filly from a very good family. Her full sister is showing promise as an Event Horse. Her dam line is the A line of Abiza, a line that has produced numerous champions at the higest levels of sport. Her sire Lion King competed successfully to the FEI Levels of Dressage as did her Grandsire, Meisterwind. She has a friendly, willing and outgoing personality and her potential is unlimited. If she wern't gray she wouldn't be for sale at any price. Being gray means we can't use her in our Appy Sport Horse Program.

Leilani is lifetime recorded with USEF and microchipped.

Leilani should mature around 16.1

We usually have a nice selection of yearlings and two year olds. Warmbloods by Lion King and Appaloosa Sport Horses by BJC Asher Seven, out of Warmblood mares.
They are pasture raised so won't be "show" groomed. We will do videos by request, but please understand this is a busy farm and it may take us awhile to get them done.
