Kind of hard to judge that from a photo, though...

The horse's personality and drive can help. However, my mustang pony ain't going to go far in dressage. He's great for pleasure riding. He's 13 hands, and can carry my 175 lbs without any difficulty. He's a solid fellow with a good mind. He seems very well balanced.

Why is it wrong to say a horse is well suited for pleasure riding, and capable of benefiting from lower level dressage? Why is it considered an insult if the horse isn't built right for top level competition in anything?

HUH, no one said it was about high level either, that is kinda dumb comment as well.

Its disgusting to describe any lower level horse as only suitable for pleasure trial. My Toby is seen as low level (on look), but is a very capable endurance discipline horse.

Am I the only one suspicious of all the brand-new members flocking to this thread, along with the nature of their comments?

But bubba, my mustang looks like this (with my daughter-in-law):



You don't think that Totilas fellow is getting worried?

I know you are new here, but calling people dumb is neither helpful or friendly. Please consider changing your approach to posting on the forum. This thread has had 50 posts removed for rudeness. You could make it 51...

Looks like a dressage* prospect, to me.

*And by "dressage," I mean "horseburger."

Bubba13, He would kick you for that comment, but his short, stubby legs might not reach.

He's the perfect horse for me. If in doubt, I can stand up and let him run off without me.

:/ Though I do love the Spyder's posts, I'm going to have to unsubscribe. This is getting a little ridiculous for my liking.

If that video is what a common 1st leveler/pleasure horse only looks like, my horse would be better off not even trying.
