Deva is a 11 year old Perch/cross who I plan on doing Eventing and Dressage with. We're planning on up to Training level Eventing(If she can handle it) and higher levels of Dressage.
So, what do you think she can do? And what do you think she could be crossed with b/c I certainly can't tell.
P.S. Don't judges the shave, I did it the right way but I didnt have the right blades :P It looks a lot better than when I had just shaved it. DSC00234.jpg
She looks like she carries herself well, so dressage is probably going to be great with her. She looks like she might have a little QH but the shoulder and haunches could just be Percheron. Drafts are generally fantastic at dressage and have brethtaking movement.
No clue what she could be crossed with as she looks so Percherony lol
Very pretty girl though!
As for confo, she's a bit posty in the back legs and has a steep shoulder but I like her overall build. I agree that dressage may be her sport ;) I love drafts in dressage.
It's hard to tell what she's crossed with. It could be a QH or an Arab, but I am leaning more toward a TB cross. Whatever she is, the only thing I really don't like about her is that her legs seem awfully fine boned for a horse with her mass. However, her feet are very nice, large, and seem solid.
I don't know enough about dressage to know if she would do well or not, but she's a pretty girl and seems pretty well balanced. Maybe a bit front heavy, but not as bad as some draft crosses we see.
Posty means that her legs are straighter than ideal and there isn't enough of an angle in her hocks, pasterns, and stifle. They are a touch straighter than ideal, but they aren't bad. Here is an example of a horse with extremely posty hind legs.
