Iron River


1998 1.70m Grey Oldenburg Stallion
Competing in 1.3m/Advanced/FEI**** Level Eventing
Ridden by Edgar Hodges

We were waiting anxiously for the day that the beautiful grey colt would arrive. We had heard from the shippers in the morning that they were three hours out, with good traffic. Of course, with Oregon's famous road construction, they were fourty-five minutes behind that schedule, but they finally arrived. As they pulled in the drive, a few of the curious mares in the pasture came up, calling to the mystery horse inside the trailer. He could barely be contained as he strode boldly out of the enclosed trailer, nickering and calling for the mares. His handler breathed a sigh of relief when he was finally in his run, and could strut off the lead.

Iron River's career with Castrol began with a short but successful season in 2010. He started in the Preliminary Level in Northumberland's Trisports Federation, bringing home 10 points in his first two outings with a 7th and 3rd place. Since that time, he has gone on to compete with Castrol for five years under saddle and a sixth in hand, earning him a number of titles up to FEI****.

IR is an ideal sport horse in every way, but one. His early days were riddled with off days due to his poor temperament. We are glad to say that with additional time and training, he is a much calmer and safer horse to work with. The problem has never been the working him in the ring - he loves to show off and is eager to let everyone, judges included, know just how good he can be. But to get a horse in a show ring you have to take him out of his paddolk, into a trailer, out of the trailer, into the show stall, out of the show stall, and then walk him to the ring. These areas were as dangerous as shark infested waters with a chumsicle as your only lifeboat.

In the breeding barn, Iron River has at every turn exceeded our expectations. While a few of his offspring can have his hot temperament, carefully chosen mares have ensured that all are capable of concentrating on the task at hand and showing that their natural athleticism is more than enough for their sport. Iron River's colt Idolatrous is looking to follow in his hoofprints, already earning high marks at his own Stallion Performance Test and with his first First Premium foals on the ground.

Announcement: Iron River's accolades and breeding success have earned him a ***** rating. We thank his handlers and rider team for bringing this amazing sire to this level, and for the riders, trainers and handlers of his offspring that have earned him this incredible honor!

Ideal began winning as soon as he was able - branded Premium foal at the Oldenburg Verband Inspections. He continued this success by being selected for exportation to the US, and by being chosen by the International Sporthorse Registery, the International Arabian Horse Association, the Facteur Selle Francais, RSPI, and the German Oldenburg Verband as a breeding sire. His offspring have recieved record scores at inspections, and he hisself is one of only a few four star stallions with the Oldenburg Verband.

River Girl was a beautiful bay mare that earned the Reserve Champion status at the East Coast ISR/OLD Championship in 1998. She is the dam to the highest scoring mare in the ISR/Oldenburg N.A. (Irresistable), and is a Premium status mare with the ISR. A truley exceptional mare with a lot to offer for her offspring, with her large stride, beautiful grace and flashy movement.
