    Just to see how big he can jump... basically how scopey he is. Either free jumping or under saddle.

    I haven't yet. His old owner was jumping him 4'7 and showing him 3'9 and 4 foot but I don't jump that high yet. I might get video of my trainer jumping.
    From what I was told the people who had him before his old owner (his first owner, I am his third) used him as their grand pre horse.

    Hmm... did you do a nice solid PPE on him? Grand Prix puts a lot of miles on a horse.

    I did everything my vet could do. I did the whole 9 yards haha.
    He passed with flying colors.

    FaBuLoUs!!! And the cool thing about warmbloods is that most of them can stay super competitive all the way up into their 20's. We have a Dutch import at our barn that is still doing the 3'6" jumpers at 18 years old. He LOOOOOOVES his job. So you have a ton of time with this guy to really put the buttons on however you want, and move up in the circuit if that's something you decide. Big congrats!

    Very handsome horse....congrats!! I am looking forward to seeing MANY videos of you two together.

    Hopefully, the GP days of competition didn't produce such a jump drive that he will be hard to take into Hunter/EQ classes.

    Congrats! He is a looker that's for sure! He looks pretty sturdy and has a kind look to him as well. I just got my new horse a month ago and know how you feel. Its one of the greatest feelings in the world. How does he ride? Like a dream, I imagine :)

    Oxer- That's awesome. I can't wait to just go play with him and take a lesson on him and all the fun stuff haha.
    Joe- Thank you :P
    Allison- Thank you, I'm not sure how great of a Hunter Horse he will make but we did really good in EQ and Jumpers at the show we went to. Oh and there will be a lot of videos :P
    Gifted- Yes he is sooo smooth and just awwwww haha
