I like the mare, too. She is gorgeous and looks well balanced. Prosico has those long, thin legs, and Great Dancer has no hind end whatsoever. I'm sure that could be worked on, but given the choice between Great Dancer and Honey, I'd go for Honey. She looks the most suitable for H/J.

You should also consider how they are in person, too! It's like buying shoes online, they look great in the pictures, but do they fit? Good luck!

Here are a few videos of the geldings...I am kind of upset because the mare is changed to for lease and that isn't what I am looking for. So now it is just Great Dancer and Prosico.

And here is Prosico

Interesting. I don't like P's movement at all.

The bay gelding does not look healthy. Something is horrible off with his movements.

And the chestnut is using his neck as a fifth leg. And I would not call him a good jumper.

I didn't watch the jumping videos but from what I could see the chestnut seems quieter than the bay. No real faults but he seems green and fast. How long has he been off the track?

The bay on the other hand seems sensitive. He is constantly looking around and the rider is riding defensively. Also, I can't tell for sure but his left hind looks funny. Maybe he is stiff? I would definitely get x-rays on him.

Thanks! I am currently undecided and I think I may keep searching. How does this one look? I would have to call for more info but this is all I know about her. That she is a 2008 TB mare.

I want to see what the others say but I think I like her better than the geldings. I think she has a nice way of moving and she looks pretty balanced over fences, though I am no expert at jumping. Lol Do you have any conformation pics of her?

She might be worth looking into if she is priced like the others.
