Rigger ~ May 2011

One of the first horses to greet you as you approach our herd is Rigger.  Rigger is a four year old bay and a good representative of the Canadian Sport Horse.  For his age, Rigger is a very willing and reliable guest horse with a playful and curious personality.  True to his breed, he is very athletic and loves going out for trail rides.  Canadian Sport Horses are known for their ability to excel in Olympian disciplines including jumping, dressage, and three day eventing.  Rigger’s breed was first used in World War I and derives from a combination of the common Canadian farm horse and the Thoroughbred.   These magnificent horses are typically more muscular than Thoroughbreds, have thicker legs, and average about 16 hands tall at the withers (one “hand” is about four inches).  Like the sound of Rigger?  Check out the details of our Weanling Week and Canadian Sport Horse Sale where The Home Ranch purchased Rigger.  Weanling week takes place this fall September 11-18, and culminates with the sale, on September 17th.

We would like to welcome Tiffany Gillen, one of our new wranglers for the summer and fall seasons.  Tiffany is riding Rigger in this photo and is very excited to meet everyone!
