After seeing these videos I really like go. I don't personally see anything off in the front. I like how consistent she was over the fences to. She seemed to try very hard to please.

Thank you. I didn't see anything wrong with her front, but I noticed she looked better in my videos because I wasn't forcing her into that odd headset, I was just letting her be herself.

She is a cute jumper. In the first clip, you see me get like shot over because I wasn't expecting her big jump. I got used to it, and I really liked it.

I don't like either of them. Personally, I would keep looking for something more...experienced and properly trained.

Wow. Go looks unhappy in any of those videos imo. Even though you are not forcing her into a headset, you are also not following her head either which is limiting her. Given what i've seen of her training and of your riding her, i'd pass. I don't think you two would be a good fit UNLESS you have full time GOOD professional training.

Go is not using her "ring of muscles.' She is stiff... and her neck is up and her back is hollow. I almost she is missing some serious foundation work.. training her to stretch her top and engage her abdominal muscles to form a balanced, rounded frame. OR she could have a sore back.

Is she fixable? If it is training, yes. If it is a sore back.. maybe. It will take a lot of time.. lots of hills.. lots of work at transistions and balance.. getting ther to curl her rear under her, lower her head, relax her neck and work off her hind quarters.

exactly. I guess what my concern is that the OP isn't ready for that kind of work. Unless she is going to be in full training with a qualified trainer, this horse isn't going to get any better given what these videos show.

Yeah and my parents decided to wait on getting me a horse. I have Cowboy and other horses to ride so I'm done looking for now.
