new to the forums -my rmha mare,breeze.

Here is my 15hh 3yr old RMHA filly Breeze. She is currently in training with Henry Elam & will be making her show debut shortly. I am considering selling her due to her inexperience & my inexperience in the ring [i am 14 & in just my sencond show season]. She has the potential to be a top-notch show horse. Critique her please, & perhaps give me an estimate on what you think she would be worth. She has exceptional bloodlines, & is all around nearly the perfect horse [bathes,clips,ties,ect]. Please be specific,but noot too harsh. Thanks, Paige.

[these pics are in order from oldest to most recent; all "contraptions" on her head is from where her headset was being,well,set]

I would like to see her lift her legs more...but that may be from inexperience...like you said she is a workin progress...

I absolutely love her color!! She seems to hold her tail perfect...i love her looks all in all...but I aint good at pricing

I'm not a fan of the breed so tell me, are the hooves supposed to be that long?

They're grown out like that to create a higher break-over point, making the horse step over its hoof more.

I've always wondered.. how exactly does that "contraption" work? The top part along the crest seems to pull the head up, and yet there are side reins to pull the head in.

I won't give you my guess as to her potential value. I don't deal with that particular breed of horse, ever. What are you looking for in your next horse? You know what breed, gender age etc?

The idea of a Rock Mnt Horse is how high it steps. The longer the hoof,the higher he/she will step. The back hooves are always signifegently[sp?] shorter because you definetly don't want the same heigth action in the back as you do in the front. There is however a limit on how long the horses hoof can be [I believe it is 6in.]. You have to go through DQP before intering a class, & the people at DQP measure the hoof to make sure it hasnt been grown out exsessively.

The "contraption" comes in all shapes,forms,& fashions, but the overall idea is to bring the head up & the nose in. How high you bring the head up or how much you teach them to tuck their nose, depends on the horse & the way he/she is built.

I am looking to buy a Rocky Mnt mare/gelding with some show experience. The main reason Im selling Breeze is that I don't have enough experience to bring out her full potential,which she deserves. The horse I am wanting will range from $6000 to around $12,000. I turned down $6200 for Breeze before she went to a pro. Trainer, which was several months ago.

But does anyone have even a guesstimate on her value?
