Rios Little Fashion






90 days training with professional horse clinician Jeff Spencer of Eagle, Idaho

Lightning is a very handsome Cremello with an exceptional baby doll head, he is stout with thick bone, and intelligence.  His name speaks for itself, he is lightning fast and light on his feet.  Lightning sits and spins so you better hold on, we are roping and moving cows on the mountain with Lightning.  He has spent time in Eagle Idaho with horse clinician Jeff Spencer where he was started correctly and has roped hundreds of calves.  We are most excited to see what Lightning can do cutting cows, his cow sense is in high drive and we already know he is athletic.  He is producing beautiful foal crops with lots of color and beautiful conformations.  We invite you to come and see him for yourself.  Foals out of Lightning are alert, they demonstrate the mental capacity to retain training and stand up to hard use under saddle.  The greatest traits of Lightnings pedigree have written the record books, these traits are still evident in the progeny produced by Lightning today.  

Lightning is by Rio Starlight who is a 15.2 hand 1,200 lb buckskin with a great confirmation to go with his great pedigree.

Rio is out of Smokin Kitty Rio the 1993 NCHA Open Reserve World Champion with earnings exceeding $65.000. Smokin Kitty Rio is by NCHA and NRCHA greats Smokin Jose, Jose UnoDoc Quixote and AQHA/NRHA Hall of Fame Mr Gun Smoke.
