The hack job mane and crazy fetlocks are some what intentional. I'm too broke to buy her right now, so I'm passive aggressively trying to make her as ugly as possible for as long as possible to prevent anyone else snatching her up (that'll work right??!? lol). But we have our first show coming up in a couple weeks so that's going to be taken care of and she will be neat and tidy.
My goal is to do mid level all around english with her. My goals with her include getting up to (but not necessarily competing at) third level dressage, 3'3-3'6 hunters/jumpers, and dabble in some eventing around the same level as the jumping (training I think) if she turns out to be a handy jumper. Having not free jumped her I'm not sure how her form is, but she seems otherwise pretty athletic and careful under saddle. Her mother was a very handy jumper despite having below average front end form, but Fruehling's shoulder is much better than her mothers. I really love eventing, but there isn't much of it around here, and shows are very small and low key, so if I never go to big shows/events with her that's fine by me.
