So, to be honest, I am not that educated on analyzing horses conformation for various different disciplines, which is why I am posting here
I am interested in getting an OTTB as an eventing prospect. I have worked with OTTB's before and have found that I really do enjoy teaching the baby green horses how to go nicely under saddle. My current horse, a 13 (maybe 14 I'm not 100% sure how old he was when we got him) is off the track and I love him to pieces. The barn owner got him when he was 3 or 4 and I have worked with him ever since then - she actually eventually ended up giving him to me! Anyways, enough of the side story! I am potentially interested in one of these three horses, but I was wondering which one you guys thought would make the best eventing prospect.
This one is my favorite. He has been on CANTER for a decent amount of time and I am always gravitating towards him.
I also really like this horse, the the thing that concerns me about him is his neck. To me, it looks like he has a short neck, compared with the rest of his body.
This is another guy who has been on the site for a decent period of time who I have always really liked too. The description says "fiesty" and experienced good home a must. I would actually perfer a horse with some spunk - the only thing that would be concerning to me is if he had a rearing problem. I am not advanced enough in my riding (I'm not sure if I will ever be) to deal with a horse that rears.
Also I would be working closely with my trainer with any of these prospects. I REALLY like #1 but I also REALLY like #3, I am not sure why, but there is just something about those two that really make me think they are going to be something special. I also like horse #2! Anyways, I would love to hear everyones opinions on the pros and cons of each or whichever they think would make the best eventer.
Thank you all in advance!
