Nope, can't think of anything to pick on ;) I like them chunky monkeys, even if it is a mare, lol

Thanks! yeah her owners/breeders are wonderful people!

Well, she is obese to the point of I would get blood work run on her to rule out health issues. Has a vet looked at her recently? Is there a PPE being done?
She has a very short neck, is goose rumped and has a long back. Can't really tell much else due to the severity of her obesity.
I would focus on getting her healthy before riding her too vigorously as overweight + out of shape = injuries.
Would be interesting to see her healthy and what her confo is like then, but from what I can see now I would not expect her to do well at dressage, even at training and first levels. She might work out to be a great recreational and trail horse, depending on her temperament.

Good luck!

Anabel, I do agree but like i said all these photos are over an year old and I have not seen her in person since then so until I do and am able to post photos...

My starting pan for her is just lots of hand walking everywhere to help her loose weight, and slowly start her back up again.

As for a PPE....I am not buying her she has not been listed yet.
Should I see a reason for a vet to come out and look at her I will do so but I am not spending money on her (vet wise, unless she gets hurt when in my care) and the owner does not have any extra money sadly.

So my plan is slow and easy and just asses her as it goes. I am not expecting anything big out of her at all and know this could be a long slow road with her.

For a project horse this is a really nice one. I don't always like this cross.. usually it is like oil and water.. but this is a nice horse.

Get her fit and she will do really well. May not be a project in the end.. may be a really nice Dressage Horse.

Sure she's fluffy, yup she has a short neck. But she is a nice looking mare who can move. Dressage is certainly a good career for her. Will she go GP? Probably not, but 98%+ of purpose-bred dressage horses don't, so I wouldn't let that stop you

FWIW, I have a friend with a horse competing at PSG/I-1, and he'll debut at I-2 this summer - that's piaffe, passage, 1-tempis, pirouettes, etc. He is 14.3H at withers, 15.2 at top of croup. Really. As my Brooklyn-born Granny used to say, "Ya neva know".
