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 Le Phantom

5/4/14 Warmblood Gelding

By Lion King, out of Fancy That PCH, by For Paragon

A "freaky" talented, beautiful gelding. His dam, a grand daughter of For Pleasure, was a winning Hunter and his sire a champion Dressage horse. The dice is surely loaded in this guy's favor! He has a wonderful temperament and correct, expressive gaits showing a lot of balance and athleticism. His free jumping showed us that he is an extra special young horse with an incredible future. Phantom should finish around 16.2.

Phantom is going nicely under saddle. He is sensitive but cooperative, somewhat of an overachiever so he's being brought along slowly. You will not find a nicer prospect anywhere!

Lifetime registered with USEF.


RF Labeled Black

5/23/14 Black, Warmblood Gelding

By Lion King, out of RF Matilda, by Meisterwind

Here is a fancy, fancy youngster for the person looking for a serious Sport prospect! He is from a proven family that has produced winning Hunters, Eventers and Dressage horses. They are sensitive, forward thinking athletes with unlimited talent. LB is going nicely under saddle and is willing and cooperative. He is a higher octane type but oh so loaded with talent. A definite GP prospect! His full brother, RF Lime Light was competing PSG with scores above 66% at 7 years old.

LB has his lifetime registration with USEF.


Full brother to RF Latten and RF Lime Light both winning Dressage horses.


LB is a big, solid gelding. He is 16.2 and not done growing.

04/28/15 Appaloosa Sport Horse Gelding

By BJC Asher Seven out of Willowbez AA

Abstract is a big, solid gelding who looks to mature well over 16 hands. He is beautiful, correct, a good mover and a very good jumper. He has been easy and cooperative to work with and should be a competitive partner for the serious rider.

RF Almandine

6/18/15 Appaloosa Sport Horse Filly

By BJC Asher Seven, out of Gold Digger, Warmblood, by Goldfuerst.

Almandine is the last foal of one of our most successful mares. Gold Digger has produced winning Hunters, Dressage horses and Eventers. Almandine is a beautiful filly, dark flaxen chestnut with spots. She is a nice filly, easy to work with and very friendly. She has very good gaits and a nice jump.



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 tall and will probably mature over 16.2 He is good natured, cooperative, and absolutely beautiful!

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

RF Atlas

7/1/15 Appaloosa Sport Horse Gelding.

By BJC Asher Seven, out of RF Macarena, a Premium Warmblood daughter of Meisterwind.

Atlas is a big, strapping gelding who is a very pretty bay roan, with spots. He is a very uphill, powerful mover with excellent gaits, and an incredible jump. We feel this gelding has a bright future.


Atlas is registered with the Appaloosa Horse Club #682321, the USEF #5392846 and is microchipped.





RF Azurite

5/25/15 Appaloosa Sport Horse gelding.

By BJC Asher Seven, out of the Warmblood mare RF Lambada, by Lion King.

Azurite is a beautiful youngster with very good movement, a good jump and a sweet disposition. He has a calm, workmanlike attitude. He is good sized and looks to mature over 16 hands. With a dam line full of FEI Dressage horses, we think he may excel in that direction.

Azurite has his lifetime USEF registration, #5392834, and is microchipped.

He has a lot of roan over his hips and may develop enough coat color for Appaloosa Horse Club papers.

Magisch, by Meisterwind

ApHC # 682049

USEF# 5392841


One of our favorites, "Finally" is a super youngster! His barn name is Finally because his dam carried him for a full year. We were relieved when she finally foaled. We feel he will mature 15.3 to 16 hands, making him a nice prospect for the person wanting a medium sized horse. He is very personable and easy to work with. Not to mention incredibly beautiful!!


See "Finally's" video here

Below are a few of the younger horses we have available. We have not tried to market yearlings or two year olds much, due to the fact that ours are raised outside.
We have gotten more interest in younger horses so have included a sampling below.

RF Lailani

5/5/17 Filly

By Lion King, out of RF Maui, by Meisterwind


An exceptional filly we feel would be a quality prospect for the serious amateur or professional. She is correct, has a nice, cooperative disposition and should mature 16 to 16.1 hands. Her full sister is being developed as an Event horse.

Lailani has her lifetime USEF number and is microchipped.


See her video here. She was 4 months old.

by BJC Asher Seven, out of

the Premium daughter of Meisterwind,

RF Mariachi.

"Fred" is a large, quality colt with excellent movement, especially his canter. His dam has produced successful Hunters, Jumpers and Event horses. Fred may get enough coat color for Appaloosa Horse Club papers once gelded and he has a partial blue eye. He is lifetime registered with USEF and microchipped.

RF Allemande

6/15/17 Appaloosa Sport Horse Filly,

by BJC Asher Seven, out of

RF Lambada, by Lion King

We call this filly Blossom because she has the smallest "blanket" we have ever seen on an Appy. It looks like a blossom on the very top of her rump. Odd color aside, Blossom is a very nice filly, both in quality and conformation. She should be able to gallop and jump, or strut her stuff in the Dressage ring. Whatever you choose. Blossom is lifetime registered with USEF and is microchipped.


See Blossom's video here
