Thanks!! Yeah I liked Stage Idol the best, I may have a look at all three though and see which is the best.. The riding pony cross my suit the type of riding I do (showing and eventing plus pony club) but Stage Idol definitely has a wow factor that would get him noticed in the ring haha.. he does have quite slanted pasterns though which may put stress on his connons when jumping etc. what do you think about that? Stress point or am I overreacting??
I don't think it is such a big deal. His pasterns look pretty typical. I think they look overflexed because he is in the middle of a stride at a canter and the pic was taken at the point that all his weight was on those 2 feet. Yeah, like you said, he is an eye popper but you may want to try all 3 just to make sure. You may end up hating the way that he rides. :)
