By the well known Stallion Kinnordy Gym Bello - Hanoverian Stallion by Gymnastik Star / Graf Landau. He hails from the famous ‘G’ line known for producing highly talented dual-purpose horses for both jumping and dressage competition.

Out of multi-talented and proven Sport Horse Dunrobin Santa Fe - Competed with wins and placings up to 3star Eventing/1.20m SJ. She always showed a fantastic technique with a scopey and tight front end over a jump, never wanting to touch a rail. Her consistent results speak for themselves. 

This gorgeous filly has been professionally handled right from a foal. She has had basic handling and is slowly being introduced to new things which she takes in her stride.
Rio has an incredible nature and is super to handle. She has shown a very willing attitude and curiosity to learning and picks things up quickly. 
She is growing into a stunning, well put together filly who always draws the attention of anyone around her.
She has 3 beautiful and correct paces with a balanced and floating trot and a large striding gallop.

She loads and travels well on a float, tie-up, trim feet, wash, plait and enjoys a good groom.
Rio has had one session of lunging which she started to pick up in less than 5 minutes, once again proving her positive attitude towards learning and her trainability.

Recently when she traveled to a new property she quickly settled into the new environment and was happy sleeping in the sun. When asked to move out she never got wound up or upset, but was just happy to be out with people doing something different.

Does have a small scar on her chest with a dotted white hairs from a superficial cut when she was a foal.

Backed by her proven bloodlines Rio is a very special filly who was purposely bred to become a quality performance horse.
With the right training she has the potential to become a stunning performance horse and with the right riding take a lucky ambitious rider far.
