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

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. We try to keep updates current but prices are subject to change. 

 

RF Arkenstone

2014 Appaloosa Sport Horse Gelding

By BJC Asher Seven, out of RF Marigold, by Meisterwind

Archie is a super talented, sound, well schooled young Event Horse. He moved up to Training Level in 2020 and shows the ability to progress up the levels quickly. His rider has no desire to compete above Training Level so has made the difficult decision to offer Archie for sale.

Archie has excellent manners. He is great at shows, loads and hauls well alone or with company. He rides out alone or in a group and is easy to get along with. He is a good in all three phases, has clean flying changes and no stop. He is exceptionally rideable. Archie could easily do the Jumpers right along with Eventing.

Archie is the mythical unicorn everyone is looking for!

 

 

Archie is lifetime recorded with USEF and USEA. He has Appaloosa Horse Club papers and can be shown in Appaloosa Breed shows and compete for the ACAAP Awards in open competitions.

Priced mid to low five figures, negotiable to the right situation. This is a truly special horse that we would like to see given the opportunity to SHINE!

 

 

 

 

 

RF Last Call

4/10/2018 Warmblood Gelding

by Lion King, out of Cosima by Carismo

This is a tall solidly built gelding who's dam, shown as "Seaside" was a Champion Hunter. Seaside's sire, Carismo, is the damsire of Fischer Rocanna one of the most successful Event horses of all time. Last Call is quiet, cooperative and sweet natured. He loves to come into the barn for schooling and treats. He is going to be a big boy once mature, probably in the 17 hand range. His rhythmic gaits should make him an incredible show hunter. The video linked below was his first time schooling in the jump chute. He was happy to do it and acted like it was a fun game. Last Call is microchipped and lifetime recorded with USEF.

Last Call is now under saddle and progressing nicely in his training. He is quiet and sensible. 

$15,000 (Price will increase with training)

RF Lafitte
2018 Warmblood Gelding by Lion King, out of RF Mocha, by RF Meistertanz. This gelding's dam is our last daughter of Chipper Bezt our first mare to achieve States Premium Status. "Chips" produced several very nice horses herself and her daughters have proven to be excellent broodmares. We raised Mocha strictly as a broodmare but she showed us an incredible free jump, and excellent, easy disposition and she is strikingly beautiful. Lafitte is showing us that he is packed with all the talent that his family is known for. He is microchipped and lifetime recorded with USEF.

RF Sugar Snap

05/27/2018 German Riding Pony gelding.

Sugar Snap is sired by the Welsh stallion, Smoke Tree Snap Dragon and out of the Warmblood daughter of Meisterwind, RF Muzique. Muzique is also the dam of Micaela Ramond's "Cheeky" and Stacy Sullivan's "Louie", both geldings well on their way to showing success.

Sugar Snap is under saddle and is quiet and gentle. He adores people and loves to interact with you. He is probably going to end up as a small horse rather than a "legal" pony but he has big horse movement, a very correct jump and is built solid and substantial. He should be the perfect partner for the person wanting a smaller mount.

$9500
