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 definately 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??

live for the good times,, forget all the bad,, love him forever and you'll be always glad!! So hug like you mean it,, and kiss in the night,, smile when they cant see and never ever fight!!

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. :)

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Wow; they are all stunning...but the last one really caught my eye the most! I'd check them all out for the heck of it, & see from there!

Ride more, worry less.

I like the last one. The height will help you out alot with suspension in dressage.

They all are great looking horses however the first one catches my eye the most. He seems really compact and has good form, but obviously only going to see him in person would tell. Good luck :)
