Looking at this Horse - Thoughts?




So she hasn't been ridden in 5 years due to owner unable to ride anymore. Has extensive groundwork tho. Considered green broke. She is a 13 year old Belgian mare. I know they aren't proper confo pics, but was just wondering what everyone thought of her from these pics.

Imagining life without a horse is like imagining life without food, water and air.

Well she would probably do some dressage and trails. I understand that drafts are not real forward for dressage, but it would still be something I would like for her.

beautiful belgian but wouldn't be my choice for dressage unless you're just having fun with it. I can't imagine a full draft being able to really collect enough for higher level movements. They are also a little slow on trails but again, for a trustworthy, solid mount they are a nice choice.

Well I didn't plan to show her in dressage as I have my TB for that. I just thought it would be good to teach her some of the lower level movements. Basically I am looking for a nice, calm horse for my husband to hack around on.
