Dressage potential?

Heck, I might be counting my chickens before they hatch again, but we'll see ;)

Just seen this fella, and rather like the look of him. There is one confo picture that looks like he may be rather butt high :S

He's 6, 169cm, and out of Weltmeyer.

You can click the picture to enlarge, and there is a button 'video1' that you can click and there are 4 videos you can watch.

He's done well so far, with the level he is at, but he weaves... I have no experience, so anyone who can say yeah no issues or stay away please do!

I'm not a fan of the riders hands, position or constant nagging either, but we will see what you have to say :)

weltino

TIA!

He's a little straight in his back legs. The photo makes his front legs look a little bit over at the knee. Can you get any more pics of him?

I could ask, he's slightly out of price range right now however its a breeder so they're used to being knocked down ;) I will see what happens with the girl... saturday& sunday I have people, and to confirm a date next week with another.

Who knows!

But if she does sell, I will enquire further!

I don't know what "weaves" means. He looks perfectly lovely to me, but I have pretty low standards, no doubt. The rider may have been a bit inflexible with the hands, maybe. I could see it in the walk a little.

Weaving is where they stand in their box and move their head and neck from side to side from stress or boredome....

oh yes, now I remember. I was thinking it was some sort of gait oddity and was looking for it in the videos. Like "paddling".

I think his confo is really nice.

Duffy, I'm sorry--I didn't know about the video. He seems quiet--certainly you could use THAT!!
I don't see any front leg problems in the video or with his movement. He doesn't extend well, but perhaps that is a training issue.

that's alright corporal LOL, there are 4 videos in total, under the video screen there are 4 icons each is a video. He's only a baby and is currently at the level I was at when I had my schoolmaster, but needs some refining. Technically at that level he should be on flying changes and medium work but of doesn't say much. Naturally the price concerns me as its rather low so would have a 5 star vet check done. Just one to keep in the pipelines for now I suppose!

I looked at ten seconds of each vid and not impressed by his movement. No reach through the fore and not much from behind, from what I see he doesn't even track up naturally, perhaps when pushed but...not sure there. To be perfectly honest, he moves like a western pleasure horse that's going a bit too fast. But that's just my two cents and aren't worth much!
