The only warmblood i've ever heard of anything like that was one that was owned by someone else that was an ex GP jumper and was started super early and too fast and started to deteriorate but any horse that has something like that should not be jumping that's like asking someone with arthritis in their hands to play piano, mayb it wont hurt right then but later they'll b in pain!

If you were told a horse has such problems and you think its ok to show them and use them.... wow! That's all I can say without getting in trouble on here

Almost all the horses in my riding school are FWBs and none of them have Navicular and hock issues!

Eventing a horse with these problems is not fair to it and very selfish.
I would never get a horse with these problems if I planned on jumping/eventing with it. I would have kept looking for a sound horse that can handle being jumped.

I'm wondering if you arent explaining it right... like the vet explained somethign and the way you are relaying it back is making it sound worse? Do you have a written report you can copy verbatum so we can see what you are saying?

Anyway, I don't know tons about lameness, I have a friend that has a horse that she rides dressage that has had navicular (diagnosed as a 3 year old). The horse is 25 and sound. She does use special shoes, diet, and is on 24/7 turnout and was never jumped....

"Be a best friend, tell the truth, and overuse I love you
Go to work, do your best, don't outsmart your common sense
Never let your prayin knees get lazy
And love like crazy"

Eh, no comment. Personally I wouldn't have gone through with it. There are plenty of horses that have ran Prelim and don't have any problems. They won't compete the horse over Prelim for a reason..

But I know you don't want to hear it, so nevermind.

IMO, if this horse was anything, Buck would never of sold him, I guarantee you that.

I did some research online to see what this horse has done, and I see that he has never competed Advanced, nor does he have the want/gumption to do so. I've also seen allot of online photographs of him compeating under numerous riders and he looks miserable. I don't think this is something he wants to do.

I also see that he's a dirty stopper, which would explain how he looks when in competition. I also see in his USEA record, he's been eliminated many times. I see allot of E's and W's *withdrawn* in the majority of the comps he's been ridden in.

He may be good for you at the very low levels you are doing, but I'd still be worried about his hocks and that navicular.

Something else to think about, if he was a dirty stopper for more advanced riders than you, I'd hate to see the results when you're on him.

I think there are far more better horses out there, I think you rushed into this. There are far more experienced horses out there, who are truer than this guy, healthier, heartier and honest - espcially for a rider of your level, experience, knowledge and abillity. If I were your coach, I'd of coaxed you to continue to look.

I'm not dissing him, he is beautiful to look at and I understand you are super excited about your new horse and prospects of Eventing - but I think he needs a much more experienced rider. I really don't think the two of you are going to be a good match.

All the best to you, and all the best to your new horse.

Well, you've made it quite clear what you don't want to hear so, congrats (I guess) - I really hope all turns out well, for your horse's sake.
