    I like horse #1 from the elbows up. Those tiny legs and long pasterns really worry me, especially since you want to jump.

    I see number one as a hunter type and number two more as a snappy jumper. I rode at a stable as a teen whereby one could pick the horses apart conformation wise but they were the best, most consistant jumping horses in a large city and half of them were off the track. The sooner a horse leaves the track the easier it is to train. They are usually the ones that drag their heels and show no promise.

    Just a quick follow up......#1 toed out on the right front by about 2 inches and her feet haven't been done in......a long while. At the trot her back fetlocks were really close together. Very sweet girl but just not sold on her. The kindest, patient eye though---I could easily see her with a junior who just wants to have a playmate. As far as her jumping.....she was turned out in an arena and there were a few jumps set up and she just starting jumping them on her own. After watching her for a few minutes, they tacked her up and she apparently loved it. The trainer wasn't trying to brag about her talents or show he didn't care about proper training---I think it was just a spure of the moment idea. He said they took her over 2 or 3 jumps and that was it.

    #2 I never really took too hard a look at. She just wasn't very personable from the get-go (for me anyway) and I *need* a horse with a personality. No vices and pleasant, just nothing set her apart from the crowd and since it was dinner time, I didn't want to waste the grooms time is parading her around.
