Could it just be because she is a bit chunky that she seems to have a short trot or am I making things up? I want a nice little dressage horse (I'm 5' so I don't need a giant like I have now!). Do you all think she has the talent? I'm trying to figure out the whole shoulder upright and sloping, but I'm slow learning. I think it is in between to sloped, what's your take on her shoulders and of course everything else? I keep my horses for life, so I want to make sure I make a good choice when I purchase one.
Her photo's are here: 'HMF SWEETBRIAR JAZZ' at Warmbloods-For-Sale.com
Another one from the breeder (HMF COVER GIRL first on the page) Holseiner/Connemara is here: For Sale
Cover Girl's video:
I'm not sure about Cover Girl's price, but Jazz is $3500, plus about $800+ shipping from New York to Florida. Their prices were dropped from $5000 sometime recently. I had seen them before, but disregarded them because with shipping they would go over my budget.
Let me know your thoughts!!! I really appreciate knowing other people out there are really good at picking apart conformation so I feel more confident with my choice!
Having lived in the Weser Ems region and seen a lot of foals at the brandings and shows there, I'm a bit disappointed. As a mare she would never reach main book. She is not one of the better ones, neither is the other, btw. It's not what a German Riding Pony should be, a small horse.
They both have what we call the "stubble trot". Short strides and pony speed. Definitely not for dressage against the biggens.
Oh, and foal premium doesn't mean much..........
Have you thought about an Arabian, one from a sport horse breeder? There are a bunch of good ones out there, since you're looking for a smaller horse, and they are way prettier too Posted via Mobile Device
