    I liked her until I saw her move.

    There's something about her gaits that I really don't like. She looks rushed and unbalanced, maybe? Her canter looked flat and strung out. She looks like she is leaning into the rider's hands.

    She doesn't have as much suspension as I like to see in dressage horses. As a matter of fact, she doesn't seem to have a whole lot of suspension at all. I would pass if you're looking at her for a strictly dressage mount.

    Slightly off-topic: can someone explain what you mean by "capped hocks"?

    I like her.

    I'm not good at confo and movements though...she did looked rushed with her movements but I still like her. Couldn't that be fixed?

    Other that suspension is the next step in the training of this horse nothing needs to be "fixed".


    There is nothing wrong with the movement at all. It is the natural movement that allows for so much in a higher level. It probably seems rushed to many because most seem to think that dawdling movement I see on so many video here are considered as "good".

    If this were a training level test they were doing in that video I would expect a good judge to give a score in the high 70's.

    I can't really judge the horse, but I think she is STUNNING. You would definitely get noticed showing
