    I looked through all of this and I too like this horse a lot. I wish she had inherited more of her Saddlebred's bone but she did not. Her back is nice and short and strong, but she is going to be a bit stiff and require a lot of work to get her to stretch her topline and get her hind end under herself to lighten her front end. She CAN do that (physically) so I would work on that stretching!

    Her legs are a bit light and her hocks may not hold up for the years it takes to develop at the higher levels, though her overall build begs one to try for it.

    A light (small in stature, height-wise), athletic, rider could probably take this horse all the way to Grand Prix if she has the mind for it (the horse, not the rider LOL).

    You know GH, since our family has been in Gypsies, almost all horses look light boned to me. My daughter and I were at a horse show a couple of years ago and of course, we looked at the Saddlebreds. We both remarked how light boned they were, when they really were not. It's a matter of what one becomes used to I suppose. It was the same when I had Great Danes. Their size was normal to me and all other breeds, looked small, even large breeds. Now, only having Brussels Griffons, Danes look huge to me.

    I hope you have fun with this girl. She's pretty nice all round. I doubt you will be too heavy for her. Keep us posted.

    I took her over to my trainers today, didn't ride just doing ground work and assessing her potential, and my trainer loves her, she also thinks that she will carry me, and if I work at my fitness she will be a good partner for me....

    I have told her owner that I will keep her for a while and see how it goes.

    Oh I do love her, and I think she is possibly the nicest horse that I have ever worked with, in terms of quality.

    BUT.....BUT

    If she is to much for me to handle, if I'm going to be scared of breaking her every time I get on, then she is not the horse for me, and it would be unfair to both of us to keep her long term.

    She looks very gorgeous, her legs look nice and she has a fairly good sloping shoulder. In the first picture she looks like she could be post legged, but I don't see it in the other picture, so it is probably just the way she is standing. She's got a nice face (:

    I think she is attractive, however I also do not like the way her neck/shoulders/body all join together. (could be a breed thing) Being used to Quarter/Paints I would like to see a tad bit more bone to go with the body. I am a little afraid that by the time you get her muscled up, her legs will be a little light for the body. I hope I'm wrong, she's very pretty. Good luck with her and God bless, Peg

    You MUST keep her because
    - she actually has nice bone substance in my eyes
    - look at her legs! She inherited all that SB legginess and nice headset! Yeh she also inherited that high wither and LOOKS like her back has a slight roach but if you draw an imaginary line, her back is fine, it's just the SB neck that gives the optical impression
    - but she also took the nice refined head from the arab!
    - and look at her shoulder, so nice!
    - and the color!
    - and the socks!
    - and I bet she trots like a dream
    - and I have awaken from my slumber and rejoined the forum just to write you this so come on! Give the girl a chance!
