I'm not sure. I still have to get the papers transferred. She could very well be a halter horse but I don't currently have enough money to get a dressage prospect. For some reason, people around here think just because the horse could do dressage it's worth $8,000. She is the best horse that I have found for $5,000 or under. All of the other ones I've tried were all had poor training or leg problems not mentioned in the ads.

Yeah, I hear you about the dressage prospect thing. Dressage has become very popular and everyone wants to capitalize on that. People forget that is a sport just like any other and you do not need a big warmblood that costs tons to do it. I like to tell people when I show my mare that she was someone's backyard horse that I got for free. (I do so when she has just blown their $15,000 Hanoverian out of the water) Her talent and beauty speaks for itself.

Also, as soon as they put dressage as one of the things the horse has been trained in the price seems to automatically go up. So, I tried to stay far away as possible from those and just attempt to find a horse that had a decent walk, trot, and canter on them and it was near impossible to find even something as simple as that.

She is cute. Love the butt! She is a big of a chunky monkey, plus the winter fur doesn't help either, lol. But she is very cute. She is a little short in her legs on the front it seems or there is something else going on there that is distracting me. But I say go for the dressage thing and see how she is at it. Get a couple of shows underneath you and if you are doing so well at least she has she has been trained in it. And like you said her price will go up if you ever wanted to sell her.

After an hour of trying to get her to hold still we finally got this one. The reason the bit is all funny is because I'm trying to keep her from putting her head down.
