Here is a couple of videos of a horse I tried over the weekend. 9yo QH, 16 hands and a bit. Being shown in the progressive and qualified for AQHA world.
I'm looking for a good Amateur AQHA over fences horse (fences 2'9" to 3'6" depending on the class) for Hunters, Eq, and hack, and am trying to decide between a well broke horse that I can really concentrate on myself, or a younger horse that I still have a lot of work to do with. (I have never had a "broke" over fences horse - they have always been green or had major problems to correct). I have 4 more I'm looking at this weeked and will try to get more videos from then.
On the flat trotting - this is definitely his week point, but has a lot of room for improvement
Two line mini course; first line is 2'9 set on 4 strides going downhill; second line is 3' on 5 strides going uphill (He never feels like he's really moving, but I learned the hard way that if you push him out to the stronger pace I'm used to in order to get down the line, there will be a stride left out)
Three single oxers; 2'9" -> 3' -> 3'3"
(It is me on the horse for these videos). Let me know what you think, and Thanks!
