Description:   Mr. Valentino is a large attractive gelding with a great personality and a bright and willing mind.  He is being trained as a hunter-jumper prospect.  Rudy has a big step, is a pretty mover and has tons of jump. Regardless of his large stature, Rudy is a pleasure to handle on the ground. He is incredibly kind and gentle. He is the type of horse that a kid can get on and walk down the trail. If interested, the first step is to complete an Interested Adopter Form on our website.

Update-July 2014: Mr. Valentino has been adopted by longtime Neigh Savers supporter Jeanie. This special horse with a very big heart will be living in Northern California. He will enjoy lots of flat lessons, trail rides, and attention. We could not be happier about this placement and look forward to seeing Jeanie and Rudy’s  progress together.
