Arabian Mare

Hey guys! I am going to look at this mare on Thursday and wanted a little input. I have been on the hunt for awhile now for a nice Arabian mare that I can show in halter and dressage. They don't have any other pictures of her but I will try to get a few when I look at her. Will also try to get some video. I watched some video of her and she looks pretty nice, stayed on the bit most of the time and was well behaved. She did brake the canter a few times and start to trot but they had her in a small pen so i'm thinking that might be why. I do have a trainer that would be helping me train her in dressage. Thanks for your input!!

She is certainly a looker, I would need to see a video to have any idea if she would make a dressage horse, and even then I'm not the best judge, come and look in my stable

Thing is though, what level of dressage do you want to compete at? I believe most sound horses should be able to compete up to level one, they may not be world beaters but they can perform. My biggest issue at the moment is looking at the clip under saddle in the ad, she is well behind the vertical there, and if that is her normal way of going you will have trouble retraining her to be level.

Only looking to do lower level dressage with her. I also agree that she is behind the bit, but am really hoping that she was only like that because that is what the rider was asking for. Won't know until I go look at her.

That mare has been for sale for quite some time. I've seen that ad so many times and wondered what the deal is with her. I'd love to see your thoughts after you take a look at her in person. :)

Yea I have been eying her for quite some time! I have also wondered why she hasn't sold since she seams like a nice horse but the economy isn't to good here so that could be why? I'm really excited to go seen her, but won't be jumping into anything to fast, will defiantly have her vet checked first and if I can I want my trainer to ride her before I buy her but my trainer is very busy so that might not happen.

Interesting, I actually really like her, I bet she will be a blast, but for dressage??

Well, who really knows until you try her, so go ride, if she has been for sale for a long time they may be negotiable.

She is fighting the bit, gaping and getting behind the bit, I'm guessing that being asked to do pleasure is anything but pleasurable for this one.

There is a lot of work to be done, probably just chilling and making her a trail horse for a while, letting her go forward and start reaching into her strides again, and then bring her back into training.

Something about her says she is like my Ace, fine to do it, but sometimes quicker than you wanted, . Like Ace though she does look like she is trying to please, so to me if your aim is to be a higher level successful dressage rider, pass. If like me you really enjoy working with a little bit of a challenge and your reward is doing modestly well in lower levels, then why not.

Thanks! I like her a lot to. I have been taking lessons on my friend horse, I was going to start taking her to lessons right away if I bought her but perhaps I will give her a break and just trail ride her if that's what she needs. She is young, so I don't expect her to be perfect, it's hard to know before I look at her in person.

I just want to do lower level dressage, also looking to do open shows with her in hunt seat, maybe jumping if she's good at it but I have never liked jumping all that much so if she doesn't like to jump I won't really mind.

If she's trained WP for the Arabian show ring, she is trained to be behind vertical so that in the show ring when they put romals on her, she won't go past vertical with her face. I don't know if this would be a huge problem to overcome for a dressage horse or not, it's basically a little bit of Rollkur and they loosen up in the ring. I see a cute WP horse in the video, I don't see a horse who screams Dressage at me, but I'm no expert in Dressage. She's cute, and if you want a WP horse she might work for you. If you want Dressage, I'd go looking for sport horse types who might have one who's already doing training level or level 1.
