GALLANT GAMBLER (Rio) is a 15.3 hh, 12 y.o. solid Paint gelding with four white socks. He certainly is our flashiest horse, and will get you noticed in the show ring. Rio loves cribbing and hanging out with his best friend, Bullet. Loved and shown by Megan Crouthemal. Rio was purchased and trained by Heather in Hutto, Texas, when he was only 4 years old. For nearly eight years, Rio was almost like our trade mark and an example of us at our best. Unfortunately, Rio was a cribber and a seasonal colicker. When the temperature suddenly rose and then dropped nearly 50 degrees in the spring of 2013, it pushed him into his last battle with colic. Everyone who knew and loved Rio mourned. Rio was always the most fun horse to ride, he had a tiny little western jog, a rocking chair canter, and would pick his own spots to every fence, as long as you rode him to it correctly. We loved to tease him about his reputation as the barn "chicken". He was at the prime of his life when he passed away. His picture and description will remain on this page.
