New Horse! APHA Red Dun

I just got this filly about 2 weeks ago. So far I love her! I plan on showing her in the all around events. She is a coming 3 year old.

Here is her pedigree info:
Ir Awesome Enough Paint

I don't know a lot of paints. I always had QH's so not sure in that department.

Here is a couple pictures of her at her first show: Not the best for confo I'm sure but here they are:









She isn't really this butt high (I know some one is going to say that) Remember that she is 3 and this is unlevel ground.






Ok I'm done. Tell me if you want more. I can do a video tomorrow :)

She is a real beauty. She carries her head a bit high but that will come down with time and riding. Very pretty girl and such a sweet face. Gorgeous long stride too.

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/

She's pretty cute; I'll be curious to see how she levels out. She has nice clean lines, but maybe a bit tied-in at th knee. I don't know, I'm not good at 'judging' young ones because their so discombobulated still!

I know you probably know this already, but be careful how much you lunge her; she's still young and lunging is hard on their joints. Same for riding, I was surprised so see her being rode when she's not even three yet; but that's just a personal preference. ;)

Thank you for your input. What does tied in at the knee mean?

I don't ride her or longe her hard or anything. When she gets ridden its for usually like a 1/2 or less. Usually a lot of walking and troting. Very little cantering just so she can learn to balance. I took her to the show just to get her use to the environment and showed her in a few classes; Showmanship, Halter, Trail, Western Pleasure and Horsemanship (walk trot only). She did really well. I'm just taking things slow with her. I guess techniquely she is 3 as Jan 1. but ya know what I'm saying. I show my gleding so she can still be a baby for a while ;)

WANT. She is just gorgeous.

I see Sonny Dee Bar on both side of her pedigree, and also Hancock... that's all I really recognize on her lines.

But she is beautiful. Long back, maybe? Not sure. She's got a great face for Halter, and I think she'll level out nicely. Love her. :]
