Rhythm produced some lovely foals, including 2 pure bred colts that have been retained by their breeders Arnwood Destiny & Bankswood Tango both black & over 14hh, who will continue on his line. Due to unforeseen circumstances & great sadness Rhythm was gelded in March of 2006, when it was found that he had Orchitis.

After much discussion the decision was made to sell Rhythm to continue on under saddle and give him the best possible home. It took a long time to find the right person for him & then a long trip over to South Australia with his new owner Kirsty Loader. I remember Kirsty's first ride on him & how disappointed Rhythm was when she left with the float that evening, but that soon changed when Kirsty arrived the next morning with the float, after spending the night in a motel.
