Thank you! I bet she will be about 15 ...maybe. I'm sorry if all that sounded stuffy. I know absolutely nothing about dressage and only what Mr.Darke as told me about the warmblood stuff. They are all just quarter horses . I had her and her mom shipped in from New York because I have her sister Bella and absolutely love her.
What do you do?

Need some serious help with this one

There are some days that I might just let you do that!! She's a handful!
I do have a question. Are there certain disciplines of training that should be leaned toward based on a horses confirmation? I don't meanto sound stupid, She has strong cutting lines in her pedigree but that Lil' girl LOVES to jump. She is very athletic with quick feet but she is also poised. How do you decide which direction to push her? I just want to do the right thing.

I would let her grow up a little, do some ground work and keep an eye on her. Time will tell. Nice bubba!

Whatever you do, don't stereotype her! I had a Clabber son when I was young -very stocky build. But becasue I INSISTED I wanted to jump (and he agreed LOL) He was nationally ranked in the open jumper division . He could do a 5 foot course easily and was very handy and willing. Once in a while i would throw a western saddle on him and go in a western pleasure or trail class, and he even was good at roping! Good luck with her!!
