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

Rivervale horses receive 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.

These are super nice youngsters, from well planned breedings, sired by "rideable" stallions, out of quality mares. They are handled and trained by a young horse specialist, who is also a GRAND PRIX rider and USDF BRONZE, SILVER AND GOLD MEDALIST,  CRAIG HECKERT.   Our horses have very good reputations for being uncomplicated to ride and easy to get along with. Their beauty is the icing on the cake!

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 and are equal or even superior to sport horses available anywhere in the world. The reality 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. 

Scroll down. The horses are listed from oldest to youngest.

An exceptional flashy youngster with a ton of talent. Full brother to RF Atlas, (pictured on the sold horses page). This gelding should excel in any discipline.

RF Laguna Beach, by Lion King.

A-OK is a super nice youngster out of one of our best and favorite mares. Laguna Beach is a daughter of "Seaside" an imported Hanoverian mare who was a Champion Hunter. Laguna Beach was injured as a two year old so was raised strictly as a broodmare. She did not disappoint! A-OK has minimal appaloosa coloring at this point and may color more, but it is his movement, looks and incredible disposition that makes him very special. He is microchipped and lifetime recorded with USEF.

The following four yearling geldings were videoed straight from the pasture in November. It was BITTER COLD, so no show grooming, just a quick video. They were all good boys, leaving their pals and strutting their stuff. They all had a treat and went back to the pasture.


We would have loved to have the gotten these videos done in warmer weather, before the boys grew their winter woolies but Fall got very busy and winter set in early and COLD. Since we've had quite a bit of interest in them, we went ahead and did video. We are confident they will all grow into beautiful horses!
