Rafaello is a lovely Dutch Warmblood gelding born in 1998, who Equine Paradise Stables imported from Holland in February of 2006. Since then, he has had an extremely successful show career winning every class he competed in. In 2007, he and his rider were Awarded 7th place in the USDF's Adult Amateur Division at Second Level. He is a sweet, kind and amazing horse who will be loved forever.

Justin passed away February 17, 2018. Rest in peace my love. You have given me some of the best moments of my life. You are my soul mate and you are already greatly missed. Justin was the sweetest, most willing and friendly horse. He was the anchor in our stable for many years and he was loved by all. He was the calming influence for our newer horses, the leader for spooky horses on windy days, the sweetheart we could place between two not so friendly horses. He was the horse that would stand perfectly quietly, calming Shayne when he ran between Justin's legs while cowering during a thunderstorm. Hopefully, some day in the very distant future we will meet again and spend an eternity riding through a big green field with Shayne frolicking at your side.
