She is very nice; I think she will make a very good all around prospect really...she seems to have decent conformation, although the saddle makes it hard to tell for sure exactly what's under there!

I am not a fan of jumping a 3 year old that high though...

She's very cute and doesn't look like typical mustang to me (more elegant looking).

But please, please, please, wait for her to be at least 4.5 - 5 to jump (especially THAT high!). You may ruin her legs forever.

Is she realy a mustang? She looks well bred. i see a bit of Arab in her. Its been a few years since I had my horse. I dont know every thing. Any one ealse getting that thought? I dont know to much about mustangs, but that freeze marking looked kind of Arabian to me? Is not it where that started way back when? If I am wrong, Tell me.

Definitely a mustang brand. The first symbol is exactly like what my 2 have. She is beautiful and very leggy. She ought to make an excellent horse for whatever you want to do. It would really help if you could get a pic of the brand straight on with her neck up so that we can see without the angles getting in the way.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Oh, believe me, I will NOT be jumping her at this age. I definitely don't think horses her age should be jumped either. :) Yes, she really is a Mustang and her brand is the U.S. Gov't BLM brand, so I'm 100% positive she's a Mustang from the wild. :) I will get a lot of new pictures for everyone once I get her to my barn, so I can show you the brand and her other markings better! Thanks everyone for the compliments!

There's really no issue in free jumping a Mustang. I bet she's jumped off higher cliffs then that as a youngster. As a 3 year old, there's nothing wrong with the height she's jumping (though I sincerely doubt it's 3'0", looks a lot more like 2'6" to me). The knees on a horse are closed by 2.5-3 years old. At this point, riding her would be worse for her then free jumping her because it's her spine that hasn't fused yet.

I think she's absolutely gorgeous. I like Mustangs to begin with, but she's so refined and elegant, with seemingly very few faults. She's got nice stury legs, it'd be easier to tell you more with a proper conformation shot, but I think she's going to just please you from one sport to the next.

That's what I was thinking. The mustang mare we had and the others I have been around haven't been near that elegant/leggy looking. Not too surprising, though, considering the number of very nice/ refined horses that have gotten absorbed into some mustang herds.
