Check her out- Another dressage prospect

Okay- still on my search...it may never end

5yr old warmblood (paint x Belgian) mare. 15.1 hh. Her downfall...just started under saddle with no rides under her belt. Talked to her owner and she SAYS she would probably only need a good 30 days with a professional trainer to finish up- says she is super kind, not marish etc...great ground manners. Hoping to get further pics and video later tonight- but confo wise...can you see this chick doing dressage?



Thanks guys- REALLY apreciate all the help you have given me.

Well first of all you have a 5 year old DRAFT cross...not a warmblood.

Can't see any major thing wrong but she does look thick in the throatlatch. I also feel she is a bit top heavy with more body on her compared to the legs and would have some concern to how she will stand up under training/work.

My questions here are....why is she 5 years old without having anything done to her and just what are they asking for this greenie draft cross?

I do like the color though.

By breeding NO.

By registration YES. This means that the horse MUST be registered and pass the full registration requirements either by performance or inspestion.

A draft cross by itself does not equate to an American warmblood.

Only if she has AWS papers can she be warmblood by registration. She would not be eligible for AWR papers. She would have to have been inspected for if she has no under saddle work then there is no way she could have gotten papers by performance.

Unfortunately too many people are calling all sorts of crosses ( usually draft crosses as warmblood) because they show up under the search function and people think they can get more money for them.


$2,000.00 is WAY WAY too much money.

I know 2000 is over priced- I was thinking more like $1000?

I would want to see papers ( or copies) and I would ask them what preferred level did she pass inspection at.

If they can't answer that question they don't have papers.

Edited to add with papers maybe $1,000 if you really like her...without papers no more than $600.00
