Eventing - Your thoughts on these two horses?

6yo 15.1hh bay mare - Australian Stock Horse - Horsezone - Page 5

Not very good photos, but of what you can see, what do you think of her, would she be to small and struggle over 2*? (obviously she would need to be trained to do it, and her personality etc. etc.) But conformation and what not. (:

And this horse - Beautiful well mannered Broodmare or Project - Warmblood - Horsezone - Page 4

Same deal! Apart from the being to small part.

P.s. I'm a experienced rider, and have broken and trained a million horses before, and no I don't want a already trained horse, thank you!

Personally, I like the Warmblood type horse. Has better conformation for eventing/jumping. They are both nice horses though!

I actually prefer the ASH, but neither ad has very good pictures. And I'd rather see video to judge a horse upon anyway. If you're looking for something to go above a two star, then I can't really make a good judgement based on poor quality pictures.

A million??

I much prefer the second mare, personally. Both horses are being presented with really horrible photos, so it is hard to make a good decision based on them.

Any way for you to go and give them a try?

If you've trained so many horses, then you should know what would be the best option for you.

based on those photos, I wouldnt consider either horse for what you want. If you like the wb type mare I would request videos before traveling 13hrs

Thanks guys, and yeah MIeventer, I just thought your opinion could be helpful, on something I may have missed.

And Gypsygirl - I'll be sure to ask for way more photo's and videos!

And yeah, I know there bad photo's, I didn't take them and I don't have any others!

Oh and Allison, a million is just a figure of speech /: I've broken in about 10 horses/ponies, trained 3 stallions, and trained about 50 other horses. So no, defiantly not anywhere near a million, but you get the point.
