    Chestnut mares are just as calm or hot as any other color. Temperament is not linked to color.
    There is/was an assumption of chocolate labs being less smart than their yellow or black counterparts and were referred to as "Brown Brains".

    There are Smart Labs?

    I think it looks like she has plenty of step.

    I really like her, it looks like she has a solid foundation! I have met/ showed at the same shows as her sire, Rapture R, when he was younger/showing 3rd/4th level. He is super fancy! I mostly remember being floored with his extended trot- perfection for that level!

    I love this mare! I don't have much experience as a hunter. I mainly event, and I would totally buy her as an event horse. But for a hunter... she just looks too balanced to me. I'm used to seeing the hunters that are so on their forehand that their noses drag on the ground- If you know what I mean. But then again, I only know what I see videos of, so I'm probably wrong. Good Luck!

    Does she look off to anyone? A couple people mentioned to me that she looks lame in spots, maybe not throughout the whole video. I don't see it myself, though her movement is inconsistent. I chalked it up to the rider/the lack of contact and maybe the footing, but the missteps could be front end lameness..?

    She doesn't look so much off to me as inconsistent and lacking connection in spots. If a horse is fighting contact, or changing it's frame like this, especially such a young horse, their step becomes inconsistent at times. But when she's going quietly and straight, or around corners she looks steady to me, not lame. If you're really worried about it, when you look at her bring a coach or someone knowledgeable with you, and do a vet check before purchasing.

    As for height, a large stepping 16 hand horse is completely adequate to make the distances. I wouldn't worry about making the distances until the horse is under 15.2, or is shorter stepping. I have a 15.3 mare who often takes larger than 12 foot strides when she gets rolling. And remember Hickstead was only 16 hh!

    I have a 15hh pinto mare that has been shown [local] successfully jumping level 4. Fences 3’9” in height; 3'9” in spread. With the possibility of going higher. We just stopped her training for personal reasons. I do not jump personally..if the horse has the heart to jump and is built to jump, the skys the limit. No one thought my little mare could jump higher than 2'9". She sure proved them wrong. Honestly, this horse looks amazing. With wonderful movement. And quiet to boot. She's just gorgeous. Def worth a look. [below to show my mares size. She's a lil thing. With a temper.. oh gosh. Lol wish she was as quiet as the above mare]
