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 they were mostly talking about jumping her under saddle. :) I believe free jumping her is just fine, but under saddle would be just plain dumb. :/

    Gosh. I'm loving Yazi more and more everyday. I just can't WAIT to get her here and start working with her... :) She'll be coming down soon. :)

    Hi there.
    I think this is a really good looking Mustang. I do not know where exactly she came from but the Geiger Mustangs have this look...I think!
    If I am wrong them I am sorry for that. I imagine you would be able to find this out when you get her papers.
    Geigers that I have seen seem to have very short back and very refined head as this gal does. She is a nice looking little mustang and your going to have soooo much fun.
    Hope you will find out more about her heritage.
    There are many mustangs where I live, and....unfortunately with the ever falling economy there has been problems within the last 4 or so years with people letting there domestic horses out onto the range. Tragic it is. They think they are doing them a favor when reality they are not!
    I think she is very well built. If you were planning to do jumping, an x-ray will show you if her knees are good....I am not a fan of pushing youngsters myself but you can get a vet opinion on that stuff.
    Do you know if she was even on the range? She may have been foaled in captivity.
    So happy for you two!
    Best wishes and if you ever find out where she is from I would love to know!

    Sorry for the double post..
    I just was surfing around and looked up the Pryor Mountain Mustangs....
    If you look around you can find a diagram that shows their confirmaiton.

    Short backed, sturdy legs, slightly convexed face or flat faced...
    Very similar to your girl

    Thank you HalfPass! :) Interesting information. :) And yes, she lived on the range for 9 months. :)
