Oh.. and the Sorrel Thoroughbred is far superior for dressage and jumping over the Palomino.

Thanks! I got a reply from the seller and she said she thinks the mare is sold but she'll let me know this week for sure. Fingers crossed!

And I definitely agree with many of the things you've said, especially about the farrier and the rear. It's always been quite hard to get him engaging his hindend and really putting himself to use.

Your lease horse CAN engage, it is just harder for him. His neck is not 'turned over' with the muscles in the center and top of the neck larger than the one along the jugular groove. This says he is NOT using his ring.

If you are going to continue to lease this horse, you will learn HUGELY about training if you can get him to use his ring of muscles. This horse has MUCH to teach you. Biomechanical Riding and Dressage 1

That was really interesting to read! I'm going up later today so I'll try getting him to engage his hind end more and use his ring of muscles. :) Thanks!
