    Best way to do it if you want a really nice horse but don't have the cash to buy something established under saddle! Get yourself a 'fixer upper' like Duffy, or a youngster. Billy looked great at 3 months but now is going through the revolting bum high, short neck etc. stage... bloody yearlings!

    Oh he's a handsome devil isn't he!! I love him! What are you training him for? Reckon he'd be good at dressage and jumping, his back isn't too long!! Swap??

    As for a fixerupper, I would deffo get your vet to check for worm damage. Duffy doesn't, thank goodness, have any but you never know in underweight horses. Duffy was in poor, poor condition when I got her and she cost me 3,800e when I was budgeting for 6,500e... and I spent most of that on new kit as I got rid of my old stuff ( was planning on a small horse, not a bigger one haha!) and food, food and food, and dentist, and chiro, and lessons, and shoes. It all adds up, but well worth it when you see the results you do!!

    He is a bit long in the leg and a bit tucked up.. but really nice otherwise. I would like to see more angle in the hind leg.. and a lower hock (and slightly lower knees). He is built uphill and if he had a bit better angle in the hind quarters I would be yelling "DRESSAGE" at you.

    Nice horse. Not a much substance as most Hannoverians.. you do see the Thoroughbred ancestors coming through.. but a good one none the less.

    Thank you, I got him at auction so I do not have papers on him, he is a recent gelding due to fact I knew nothing. I use AQH for dressage, does great, often get first-third at most shows not local ones, local ones to easy to him, no one thought he could, but he did great I took him off barrels put him on Dressage and he seems better at it than barrels. Makes me think it is the horse not the breed more, he is a true foundation. This one is about four years, I want him to get bigger in his hindquarters. I was not sure about why I took him off slaughter, but he looked beautiful to me, and more so when I prettied him up. I agree on the conformation flaws, I was not sure about how his head fit his neck, and he seemed high to me and I am hoping to be able to build his muscle up. I had thought Dressage, and I think I will try it, but would he be better at hunter/jumper or...?

    ALL horses benefit from Dressage training and it lays an good foundation. Start there and be sure to get him trotting up hills and over poles on the ground to develop his "ring" and get him balanced.

    He will let you know what he wants to do after all of that.

    I had a mare.. TB.. bred for Hunter/Jumping. Sent her out and she did it and was pretty over fences but she made in clear she did not LIKE it. I put her on cattle and she ate it up. Loved it.

    Train the horse, not the pedigree.
