2021 | mature 16/16.1hh | Black | KWPN-NA | Bruiser x Freestyle
Such a special filly! Rihanna was born in November 2021. Her mother Welina is bred by well- known Dutch Warmblood breeder Deborah P. Harrison of Lio Lomas Dutch Warmbloods, who earned her Platinum Level breeding award for breeding more than 45 top level sport horses. Deborah bred Welina to her Dutch Harness horse stallion ‘Bruiser’ (Unbelievable x Fabricius) before selling her in foal to Rihanna. With this dressage dam and harness sire combined, we knew we could expect a big moving foal, which Rihanna certainly is!
Rihanna showed expression and technique in her three gaits, with good balance and ability to adjust speed. She is athletic, elegant, and just has a beautiful overall appearance. Both her dam and sire have already produced several dressage horses that are competing. We think Rihanna will have good dressage potential and will reach an average height of around 16/ 16.1hh. She will be a great ride for an ambitious amateur or young rider.

Rihanna is sold.
Rihanna and her dam are boarding at Coalcyn Equestrian LLC, near Chico California. She gets handled and is used to the basics and will stay there after weaning for young horse board and training. We sold Welina to Josh Albrecht of Coalcyn after Rihanna was weaned.
