Monte, a 20 year old, 17.1 hh Canadian Warmblood gelding, retired to Ryerss Farm on April 2, 2016, along with his stablemate and friend, Herbie.
He is a retired show hunter who helped his adult amateur rider win many ribbons and year-end awards including Connecticut high point adult hunter champion in 2005. Monte’s show name was “By Design” and he turned quite a few heads at the horse shows with his good looks.
Monte is a big sweetheart and he loves to lay his (very heavy) head on your shoulder as you clean his stall. His favorite treats are carrots and apples! Monte has earned a well-deserved retirement.
