I agree that we should call a spaid a spaid but lets not be so hasty to group everything into one category, which is typical of most dressage riders.
hey um... not really appreciating that blanket statement mate ;)
I do agree with Anebel though in that 'warmblood' is overused. Any kind of cross breed no days seems to be getting the warmblood label. A little offensive to those who have spent many generations and many millions of dollars producing specific 'types' of genuine warmbloods.
As for this horse, from the photos I think it looks quite nice. Not an FEI prospect, but hey, there's some up there with horrendous conformation doing the work. My gelding, with fully imported hanoverian lines, has short front legs and a long neck, and a bit downhill but hell can he work in collection!!!!
Can't tell much without seeing it move. If it can lower its haunches, open its shoulder, swing its back and bend it hocks, that's half the battle won.
