Stable Name: Rio
Year Foaled: 2001
Dam: St. Pr. M. Belinda
Owner: The McCarthys
I've had Rio since he was just five. He had never competed and could only just canter a 20m circle! It has been a huge learning curve producing him through to Grand Prix.
He has a huge personality and has big sulks if my attention is elsewhere!!! He also thinks he's a circus horse as any of you who have watched At Home With Carl Hester will have seen!
After the journey Rio and I went on, I decided to sell him to Ellie McCarthy after 2 yrs of her leasing him. Their partnership is so exciting to follow and I’m so happy to watch him fulfilling Ellie’s dreams too.
