my first thought was that the paint looked to be putting too much effort in for that jump, but it may have been because she was pretty far out.
I like the grey but I also own one and they are not so fun to keep clean but try out the grey and see which rides better

The first horse is cute but it's hard to know which one is better by photos since there was only one of the second. If a hunter/jumper horse is what you are looking for, I would stay away from paints. Here they are not very popular nd you have to deal with very bias judges. I honestly much prefer the second horse tho. Confo wise it's quite a cute horse and as far as the breeding and coloring goes it is a much better resale value.

UPDATE Well the paint horse sold. She was already pending sale by the time I emailed herOh well. The grey is quite lovely in person and a great mover...unfortunately she doesn't know a whole lot...and what she does know was taught to her by a dressage person with brutal hands. So she needs to learn how to be soft and go forward again. She is 16 hh....7 years old...priced at $2500. She rode lovely (minus her nervous ticks about her mouth). My husband was to busy with Sydney to take pictures. Maybe next time. Im going back in 2 weeks after my trainer works with her a bit.

My2Geldings...I am looking for a jumper...not hunter/jumper. Actually in my area (Texas) the Paint would have had a much higher resale value...there is not a huge english following here...most are just AQHA/APHA english...which isn't quite the same. TB really aren't to popular here. My trainer picks them up all the time free...because people just don't want them.

I am looking for the impossible! Dressage prospect...preferably already at the training level- breed is unimportant- however I would prefer something between 5-15 years of age and not too much taller than 16hh. (I'm 5'2 on a good day) and here is the kicker...$3000 or less! I have actually ran a cross a QH gelding for $2500 in Louisanna...but if you know of anything else let me know.
