The only thing that jumps out at me is that her neck looks a bit short for her body size. Other than that she looks pretty solid.

The horse is really lovely. Will this be your first horse? I assume you have a fair amount of experience, because a 5 year old Thbd wouldn't normally be my choice of a horse for a novice rider's first horse.

The horse, is however, really exquisite.

I am so glad!

This will be my first horse:) I have been riding for over 4 yrs., I know it's not a lot- but I have really learned fast! I am an intermediate rider, I do advanced riding/training camps though.

Judging from the video, she is really strong to the jumps and will need to be slowed WAY down if you plan to use her for hunters. Hoping you have a good trainer to help you with that?

I really like him! I don't particularly care for his trot, it looks really fast and he doesn't really reach under himself, although that may change with some concentrated training. I would look into him! :)

I have had lots of experience with strong horses. To tell the truth, I actually like the challenge My trainer had me help train a horse that was sitting in someones pasture for a long time (did racing before). She loved going fast-and was very strong to the jumps. Trainer said I can handle her really well though, and she is very impressed. So I def. Can handle a strong horse:) Anyways, I really don't enjoy showing, not sure why. So it will probably just be "at home" type of thing. If I did any type of showing it would be with my HS Equestrian team.
