Not yet. But I will take one. And get a video as soon as I can start riding her. Or maybe sooner.

She's a still kinda in that leggy stage. And has somewhat of a winged out right front leg. But I think trimming her hooves and working with her more over polls will correct this :)

And as for her neck. She's realy scrunchey in this pic. So you can't see how long her neck realy is lol. I think its the perfect length :)

I look forward to seeing a video or more pictures then!

You look like a girl named Jessie, so I don't believe it's you.

From that picture all I can say is that her shoulder may look a little straight for it, which may hamper her movement. I do agree her neck is a little short, but that may not affect her at all. Or it might - who knows?
I'll say one thing though - she looks like such a sweet little horse! Good on you for getting her out of that situation.

First off, I want to say, kudos to you for rescuing for the slaughter house.Not all people will do that, because it doesnt always gaurentee a safe horse, or a horse that will last a while, seeing as you never know about anything the horse could have. So, good for you. Helping out like that. Im all for rescuing.

Anyways, any and all horses can have dressage potential, since dressage is the base for all disciplines. Just because a horse doesnt have one thing, doesnt mean it can't do dressage, it'll just take more work to achieve it. About the short neck, stated above, It'll just take more work to perfect certain movements. He's slightly uphill, which is a good thing, it makes him easier to balance and collect. I'd say you probably have a good horse for dressage, and probably even better for eventers. TBs are good horses to do that stuff on. Sporty, you know?
