RIPLEY : 1999 (11yo), 16.1H, Gelding by Riverman out of Noble Robbie xx. Registered Oldenburg NA, awarded premium foal with 8.0 points.
BLOODLINES: Ripley's sire, Riverman, was Reserve Champion of his Holsteiner Stallion Licensing, receiving 105.48 total points in the Performance Test, and was titled "Top Model" of the approvals. Riverman won the 1995 Dressage At Devon Grand Championship. But, his offspring's success in dressage, jumpers and eventing, set him apart as a truly exceptional stallion. After all, hasn't everyone heard of the great Riverman??
BACKGROUND: Ripley was bred, raised, ridden, and is still owned by an AA lady on her private farm in North Eastern MD. His owner has shown Ripley extensively thru 1st level dressage, enjoys trail riding, and has expressed to us his innate athleticism in jumping. Owner has decided to sadly sell her homebred warmbloods due to a motorcycle accident that has dampered her ability to consistently ride. The sale of Ripley and her other Oldenburg, Coquette, was never intended and is emotional, so a good home takes precedence over all other aspects of their sale.
CURRENTLY:Ripley arrived to Thornridge in October 2010 and has been the perfect gentleman in his adjustment to a new life and routine. This is a classy horse -- very kind and well rounded for the AA or JR. He has extremely comfortable gaits and is easy to sit. We will keep updating the site with new pictures, video and progress reports.
