Over all not bad looking at all!
    Big withers? What does that mean? Like high and wide? Or what?
    I have a Wintec with changeable gullets. I have a wide in right now, but she measures medium wide.

    Yeah, high. Sorry!

    Also, Standies make great jumpers and the ones I've ridden have the biggest hearts and try their hardest to please. The only thing I don't like about them and one of the reasons I don't own one is because I hate the pace! I trained my aunts Standie for a few years and he'd switch back and forth between the trot and a pace.

    Here's a picture of him [ignore my terrible position this was from 3 years ago!];

    Not all STBs pace It takes talent to ride a pace. I have done many saddle pacing races and I developed a really strong leg doing it lol. If going to train a STB for jumping best off with a trotter and not a pacer.

    Wow! He's definitely got that STB face! What a sweetie!
    My mare WILL rack. She was broke out of it, but if she misses a step/trips/whatever she'll fall back to a rack then hop out of it.
    It's really fun! Hahah!
    One time, I was running with two other girls, and out of nowhere I felt like she just stopped running and was floating. When she racks fast is it REALLY comfortable!

    I love to run with my aunts Standie [Woodie] because his pace is so comfortable..and the fact that he's faster then most of the other horses is a bonus LOL

    Agreed with having a trotter over a pacer for jumping, but I think it kind of depends on the horse. My aunts horse jumped 4.6ft courses when he was younger at a pace and could have gone higher if I had kept riding him but I bought a new horse. And at my old barn a girl has a pacer that jumps 4ft [still training] at a pace and they show successfully in the eventing world.

    My horse prefers racking to jump. I feel bad not letting her stay comfortable, but I hope to show, and trotting to racking to trotting to cantering isn't acceptable! Haha
