2nd vid rider is bad. I can't really watch the horse with him/her.
I like the second one better,though.

I wouldn't pay what they're asking for the second horse, but I do adore both. The second rider isn't bad at all.
Though the first horse is a looker with nice lines she was only shown locally and the second horse has a nice record.

It's a toughy, I wish I had 20k to spend on a horse.

I just watched the vids, not the price and such. Also, to me, the second ride is leaning forward too much and something is off with his "post"

Please do not critique the rider. That is not me riding and I am really just interesting in what you see with the horses. I like them both, but was just seeing if I missed something.

Also, the 2nd horse is $16,000, not $20,000.

I don't know much about either discipline. I did like how quiet "blue" seemed over the jumps but that lead change at :50 was not nearly as smooth as they claimed in the ad, however, it could have been rider error or an off day, I don't know.

Sensation seems like a very sweet horse and I have no problem with him in the video (though it does look like a very amateur rider), but in the ad picture, I don't like the angle of his pasterns or how straight his hocks are.

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/

I like the 2nd one because of its graceful movements, but the 1st one is nice to! :)

Sensation is 15.

Blue is 5 going on 6.

Just because of that, Blue is my pick.

Sensation may have more shows under his belt, but clearly, there's a reason (age). He also looks horrendously boring and push-button-ey. Reminds me of the school-master at my old barn, we used to call him "wet-noodle-Will". Why in the world does a horse like that need a martingale anyway?

At least Blue seems like she has a bit of personality. And she's young still, she's got more potential I think.

^martingales are the thing in the hunter ring...

I love both... do you want a younger horse to bring up or one you can go show and win on right now? That would determine the horse for me.. if there wasn't such a big age different I would go with the 2nd

This is actually going to be a horse for both my mother and me. We want a quiet horse, since my my mom hasn't been jumping for too long, but we don't mind something that is young and needs a little work. I show at A and B shows, but we don't need anything extremely fancy and we don't need anything that does over 3'
