2002 Grey 17.1h F1 CSHA stallion
Rio Grande X Tessa
*Inspected & Recorded RPSI Stud Book II
Rio's Blueprint...a stallion that immediately captures one's attention with his striking appearance and
powerful, uphill, elastic gaits!  This is a horse that simply can not be overlooked.  An impressive athlete, Rio's
Blueprint offers breeders a refreshing combination of limitless dressage potential without ignoring his natural
jumping ability.  A stallion of notable European and Canadian bloodlines (Goldschlager, Black Magic II Von
Faust, Raphael, Windhuk etc), this horse's pedigree consists entirely of world class athletes.  His sire, the
Elite Hanoverian Rio Grande, represented Canada on several winning Nations Cup teams, and is "arguably
the best hunter jumper sire in Canadian history".  The result of Rio Grande's offspring have put him at the
forefront of Sport Horse stallions in North America!  

Serious breeders looking for a quality stallion that boasts the bloodlines, temperament, conformation,
movement and progeny, should consider incorporating this stallion into their breeding program.  He
epidomizes the modern Sport Horse, is showing exceptional potential for dressage and jumping, and is
equally remarkable as a sire.  His get are expected to excel at the highest levels in both dressage and
jumping.  His maturing offspring are showing great promise as they begin their under saddle and show
careers, and their owners say they inherit his  tremendous work ethic, rideability and versatility.  

A strongly developed, typy stallion with rectangular shape, Rio's Blueprint is short coupled, with an uphill
build, very strong topline, powerful hindquarters, as well as solid bone and lots of substance. Rio's Blueprint
also has a beautiful head with a large, expressive, kind eye.

Rio's Blueprint has three beautiful, balanced, quality gaits.  A huge overstep in his walk, big ground covering
trot with lots of freedom from the shoulder and a beautiful uphill canter are just some of the things that
describe the impressive movement of this stallion.  Rio's Blueprint has super self-carriage, with a lot of
elevation and great collection.  The elasticity and general quality of his gaits make it hard not to stop and stare
when he enters the arena.  

An intelligent, athletic and charismatic stallion, Rio's Blueprint possesses extraordinary work ethic.  He is
extremely trainable, a true gentleman and a joy to be around.  He is one of the kindest animals we've had the
pleasure of riding and training.  Very respectful and gentle, he really is a barn favorite.  Everyone that meets
this horse, falls in love with him and his playful nature.
