Whatever, she IS a keeper. =D
I agree about her being more leggy if she had TB in her. If she does have TB influence, it didn't go to her legs!
Oh, she IS definitely a keeper. C:
She has truly been every I could ask.
I got her unbroke (I was told she was green...), so I thought "OH CRAP. How am I going to do this alone?" But she turned out to be the quickest learner. She still has an attitude when it comes to not wanting to listen or slow down, but that'll take time. If this helps anyone else:
She seems to be an all-around horse.
Her movement is quick, floaty, and animated. (Definitely not lazy!)
I'd say she'd be best at english pleasure compared to western pleasure since she likes to go fast.
She has the speed and quick turning for gymkhana, the scope and ping for jumping, and the curiosity and courage for cross country/trails.
She isn't always the most tolerant horse when it comes to leg pressure, but she is forgiving of a bad seat and hands. I had my mom get on her (note: she only rode a few horses in her life, and that was when she was young) and she was so tolerant! When I get on her sometimes... not so much.
She knows who she has to be careful around (kids, older and disabled people, etc.) and she knows who she gets to test/mess around with (me!).
