RIO (CL)

Category: Non-Riding Companion
Age: 12
Gender: Gelding

Breed: Foxtrotter

Bio: Rio is a 12 yo Missouri Foxtrotter who is the sweetest boy ever and can be a companion horse only. I bought him last year from a seller in New Mexico to be my trail horse and I did not get a PPE so I have no one to blame but myself. He was diagnosed with EPM shortly after I got him and he was treated with very expensive meds. When he recovered I started riding him and he went lame quickly. He was diagnosed with severe arthritis in the RF fetlock probably due to a past injury and has had a tendon injury also in the past so he is totally unrideable. I think he was probably used and abused but has the cutest personality and a friend describes him as a horse you just want to hug! I've been doing some clicker training with him and he loves it! I board my horses and it is expensive for me to keep him as a companion as I now need to buy another trail horse to replace him so I would love to find him a forever home on someone's horse property where he can just be a horse and be loved on. I would do a home check and require references because he has been through a lot. He is located in Canon City.
