Riviera


Today, the purchase of Jonah's new horse is final.
their first ride
Finding a jumping horse with the right size, temperament, experience, and potential is not easy.  We thought we had one when we brought Rock It home on trial but he didn't pass his vet check.
So he went home and the search continued.

After making a trip to Dallas to try horses and literally looking at everything that was for sale in our region, we were starting to lose hope.  Then we got a call from our trainer telling us of a horse that just came in for jump training at the barn where she boards.

Riviera

She's HUGE!
17.3 hands high
Jonah is 6 feet so you can see she is really big.
He's not likely to outgrow this one.


She's a gorgeous Hanoverian 
11 yrs old with extensive dressage training
and lots of potential to jump.

He couldn't be more excited about his new horse!
We are delighted for him.
Jonah and Rivi make such a nice pair.


Psalm 18:29
With You I can attack a barrier,
and with my God I can leap over a wall.

  3. Congratulatons! Will Jonah let Mom use his horse for dressage? Sounds like she has the training and could be your lesson horse!

    1. Well, I don't think I am going to ask him to share. She's soft & sweet but not a schoolmaster for an old lady just learning. Plus, I'm afraid of heights. ;) I have one I am looking at though.

    1. That's a nice compliment especially from you with your background. She is an amazing horse and finding her was a huge blessing for Jonah.

  7. We already have that. I guess I haven't blogged on that. Jonah knows how to tig weld aluminum and made them himself. They are amazing. Post coming soon...
