    Question Possible Buy



    8 Year Old
    14 Hands High
    Ridden Western and by little children, extremely laid back.

    Am looking at him for Eventing/Jumpers...

    Here are two videos of him:
    YouTube - WILDTHING! FOR SALE PART II
    YouTube - Wildthing! Paint Playday Pony for sale!

    What do you think?

    I don't like his way of moving...JMO though.

    I also don't know how successfully he could make the swap from barrels to eventing

    Yeah I don't plan on anything huge with him, I just figured he'd be a good candidate because he's so non-spooky it seems. I'll find out if I go to look at him, but he looks like a pretty sturdy and level-headed guy. That's why I liked him for it. :) I really am not looking to do anything huge... once my husband is out of the Navy in 8 months we're moving back to Ohio, where my stable is and I'll probably go back to co-managing and getting a young Trakehner as my next top Hunter/Jumper show mount.

    But until then... I need something fun and just quiet who won't require too much maintenance... haha.

    The little girl trying to tack him up was hilarious. If you're looking for calm and quiet, he certainly seems to be that!

    I like him. He seems calm, level headed, and like not much phases him. Which would be great for eventing. Having a horse make a switch from barrels or pole bending to jumping is not that hard. I really like him. I think you need to go check him out. I think his movement is fine for lower levels, I actually think he could really excel in the lower levels. And coming from barrels and pole bending... he knows how to do those quick turns for jumpers, and already knows his changes.

    Go ride him!
