I'm not sure...they didn't post it in the ad and she isn't registered so I can't look it up there. I sent them an email earlier today asking about her breeding and will let you know as soon as I find out!

I talked to the actual owner of the horse today. The girl who I had talked to that was in charge of marketing the horse got the breed wrong! She's actually a Belgian Warmblood. They don't know what her breeding is but she was born on their farm and has only had one owner. I'm going to try her this Saturday and will get better conformation pictures.

So the only owner bred the dam, yet have no idea on the breeding?

I like the look of her though, I'd go try her out! =)

I was curious so googled 'Annie Belgian WB' and if this is her - and it does look a lot like the horse you've posted - it says that she's a head shaker at canter hence the really low asking price - that's not something you want in a horse for eventing because you need a horse that's going to be solid for the X country and have a correct canter in the dressage phase so I would leave her well alone if it is the right horse

Yes that's the right horse. I went to try her yesterday because I figured it was worth a look and the owner said when he was showing he put her on medication that stopped the head shaking. The head shaking was much worse than they had originally told me! She could barley take one canter stride without freaking out and shaking her head. She wasn't a good fit but they showed me a TB that I absolutely love and would be much better for eventing although I'm probably going to stick with hunters/eq for a little while.

Would the TB you liked there not be a good fit for hunters if he was worked in that direction?

The TB is off the track but has been retrained to be a hunter. She still has the speed and ability to do jumpers or eventing but also has a very adjustable stride and can be slowed down to do the hunters/eq. I started another thread with her conformation picture and a video.

Sounds like the Warmblood has Head Shaker syndrome. That is sad and it is very debilitating.. for riding and work.

I'm new to this but her left hind leg really bothers me.
No way can I see that much detail in such a tiny picture!!
