now you are going to have to color me confused all over again..
Anebel you say "First level also has no lateral work"
But this is my understanding of what I described as basic lateral work
The leg yield is a lateral movement introduced in First Level
Is that not correct??
How can you tell by the sellers description that
her head was cranked in really far
Again, to be fair this mare is not advertised, what I gave you was the info given to me by email, so it's not a sales ad.
I still have a struggle believing that the mare has been carrying lameness for the 8 years that she has been schooling, showing and being used for lessons on the flat without showing signs, seeing as they quit jumping her that long ago, understand yet again, neither am I saying that she is sound, because I don't know, I'm just wondering on this point.
OK, new question, given that she passed a PPE what would you pay for her?? Oh and remember that on the prairies here the market is stronger than for you guys down south
And what do I want, actually the head says really something like this girl (if sound) From her description she is sane, rideable, uncomplicated, rides at the right level for me now, and I could have safe fun on her for a few years, which given my age makes a boat load of sense.
Heart says the Andalusian, being as I can work a cracking deal on him, involving an exchange, and he is a big ***** cat, and IF he vetted clean I could have a ball on him starting him from scratch again. He is SUPPOSED to be a calm and sane boy, he has had 60 days training on him, and has been ridden outside of that, and is reported to be comfortable and with great gaits, of course I can't confirm that.
THEN head says, get the Andi, bring him on right, you have an appreciating asset over the next few years, buy the mare and soon she will be at an age where her worth will start going down.
