Can anyone help me identify this font?
Any help appreciate
Thank you in advance
It is a free font called Riverside. See the third sample up from the bottom of this page in my Script Font ID Guide. My notes say it is available from severa free download sites.
- Mike Yanega
Lots of names... but I don't know if any of them is an original design.
Note that most (if not all) companies mentioned bellow are suspect of font forgeries,
so be extra careful if you need to acquire a commercial license.
(PS: I now see Mike's comment, that the original name is Riverside)

WOW! That is it. I just spent 3 hours trying to find this. I am very greatful.
Fivos, I honestly don't know if the original name is Riverside. All I know is that was the name of the font I used to make the sample for the Script Guide. It was obviously an amateur effort, in my opinion, because the spacing was terrible. That was the reason I had to adjust the tracking to get my sample.
Look what I found! Except for the A, the font Butch HMK, a Hallmark font, looks just like "Riverside". Interestingly, the design date is given as 2008, but my page for Riverside was made in 2004. Draw your own conclusions. At least the Hallmark version is spaced better.
Good find Mike ;)
I performed a random test by choosing another Hallmark font (Fultoon HMK):
MyFonts.com reports a design date of 2010 but I have found the same font with a (c) of 1999, so I suppose the design dates reported on MyFonts.com for Hallmark are not accurate.
