I like his front but I wish he knees and hocks were set a bit lower. He is long through the coupling and weak in the hind quarters. He is very nicely turned out and in nice condition. I like his large feet and his expression.

I'm not a fan of the fresian cross. Her hind end is very small and her shoulder is very upright.

Given the option between the 2 of them, I would go for the gelding, but I agree with others that he does have his issues too.

My trainer is a little concerned that the friesan cross might not be able to jump 3'6 what do you guys think?

It's about how hard you can get hit... and keep moving forward.

She probably is physically able, but I don't see her as being very elegant about it.

IMHO, she doesn't look like she'd make a very good jumper.

So I really like both of them and am having a bit of a hard time deciding but I think that I like Royal the best he is very responsive but Loki is also very nice but gets worked up about her head not being held tight enough because her head has been forced into a certain position and she braces against you though my trainer thinks we can fix this and I feel like I can handle her but I just feel more comfortable on the gelding... thoughts?

Seems to me you have some really good opinions here-just not what you want to hear, since you seem to be set on one of these horses. No matter how many times you "bump" you may not get someone to agree with you.

Agreed about the mare. The gelding is camped out behind. He will have trouble collecting. Slow down, girl!! THIS is a BUYER's market, right now. You can afford to be picky. Also, I am active on 4 forums. Sometimes your thread needs a few days out to get everybody's attention. Good thing it's not as active as BYC, where there are <120,000 members, and current threads change a few pages/minute!!

So, I decided to get back on horse forums and start using it again. I got really busy and just kinda forgot about it through all the craziness, but looking back on this I'm really glad that you guys convinced me to keep looking because I found a wonderful mare who is now all mine. Here is a video of us!
