How do you think she would do with endurance trails and jumping?
She appears to have the substance for it, but it takes training and good nutrition and health. Takes lots of calories and hydration. Her Crabbet blood will help with endurance. Check with people in your area and see what you can learn from them.

For those who don't like me-- it's mind over matter; I don't mind - - and you don't matter.

Yea I just emailed my friend about getting this lady's number that we rode with one, she does endurance in my area so hopefully we could train together!
I also meant about her size vs mine

She's so gorgeous!! I'm so glad you got her. :)

And yay for no more nasty colored halter!

She does look to be about 14hh, to my eye. I'm 5'8" and Lacey, who's just 14.1hh, comes to a couple of inches below my shoulder. So if you're 6 inches shorter than me, it seems reasonable that her wither and your shoulder would be just about even or for her to be a little bigger than your shoulder.

I love bright colors on Lacey, but I'm a huge fan of bright colors in general:





I LOVE Lacey in turquoise (her Aussie gear is predominantly turquoise), purple is great (her western stuff is pretty much all purple), really, I haven't found a reasonable color that she looks bad in.
She looks super classy in black, brown is ok but not as classy.
As far as more muted colors, my favorites for Lacey are hunter green, fern green, and maroon.
Really, us gray horse owners are lucky, our horses look pretty good in any color. :)

Yea I did find a nice maroon colored one, there is also this really pretty brighter olive green on with a twisted gold and hunter green border rope thing. . .so many! Lol

Also, what is a good way to trim her mane up but have it look more natural? I found a 'thining' blade it was like a comb with a short blade up in the teeth, would I just trim her mane and then use the thining comb thing on the ends to 'feather' it? I know it looks pretty (in these pics) but its really inpractical right now
