    I got all confused in the beginning because when I clicked on the links they both showed the same horse ;) I'm putting my vote in for Lilly as well. I think both are beautiful but Lilly looks quite athletic!

    I found an ad for Go!

    And it says just farm lease, but I've been talking to her about off farm free lease. And my friend Jordyn (mygirllola) will be coming with me because she's interested in Go. We're going to ride both and see which one clicks for us, but our first choices are Lilly for me and Go for her :)

    Her front end look incredibly choppy. She is neither reaching or what seems like, bearing full weight on either front leg and therefor her movement comes off as frantic and sore. I'm not sure if it's her feet that are bothering her or if she's stiff/sore up in the shoulder area. Either way, she look uncomfortable to ride and watch. It may just be the way she goes, but I personally don't like it for a dressage, hunter or jumper horse. It will be very hard to make the strides/time if she spends most of her time going up and down with her stride rather than across the ground. And with a horse that looks sore/uncomfortable, dressage scores will not be in your favor.

    I also am not a fan of the false frame she is being forced into, there is little to no impulsion from the hind end and the girl is yanking on her face to get her "round". It seems like she's avoiding the contact by shortening her stride...may account for the choppiness.

    IMO, I'd pass. Yes she has a pretty color, but that will fade. Yes she has a pretty headset, which is forced. Her movement and jumping abilities (from the one pic) are working against her so to me it wouldn't be worth it, even for lower levels.
