I think most horses have had more training than Mr G seems to have had, bless him.
It's not what everyone else in the club thinks, it's what I feel and think. It is a small group of people, most of us have ordinary horses who we are trying to make into dressage horses, and of course the have all benefited from the work we have done.
The grey is quite nice, could see nothing on the video as it was terrible quality. But if you are able to go out and have a ride, I think he would be your best bet.
The grey is the closest, and I believe the nicest so far, both good reasons why I'm going to go see him
A better video would have been nice, he is near enough that I can grab some more video while we are there, and study him at my leisure.
I would never buy a horse sight unseen. You need to take a trip or look closer. #1 has no heal at all which could cause problems as it gets older. Just because something is twice the price does not tell us anything. The 1st one could be 100.00
I have bought sight unseen before, when you are looking for a type of horse that doesn't exist in your area you either have to get very rich to pay for all the travelling to see, or you have to do a lot of talking, exchanging info. Having said that those guys were more breeding stock than riding horses.
Numbers 1 through 3 are officially off of the shopping list, #1 didn't supply anymore info when asked, #2, to far and to much retraining needed. #3, still like, but I want to go see the grey first
