    Want to help me shop?

    I am kind of sort of looking for a new horse, my shopping list looks like this

    16hh or bigger, and solid build
    Not fussy on mare or gelding or color
    Do want good solid temperament
    Would prefer broke, but green broke is OK
    Do want a good movement and the ability to collect
    Don't mind lively (think arab looky) but not keen on big spooks, small bucks are not a deal breaker, no broncs!
    Would love something that I would be happy to ride out, and doesn't tank off when let down Grrrrrr
    Bare foot

    My current interest is for dressage, currently only riding intro, but have to move up to training next year, and hopefully onto first level.

    My trainer sent me this link Breeder Direct home page Warmblood Andalusian Dressage Hunter Jumper For Sale Val Sanford (306) 242-5099 Saskatchewan Canada Canadian Warmbloods told me to look at the ones who have HERD REDUCTION in their title.

    I have one that I think may fit the bill, I keep getting distracted by the more expensive guys, but that isn't going to happen!

    So come on, have a look tell me who you like and why

    I really like Patricia, her movement looks smooth, their description seems like she has a cool head on her. I would prefer to see her ridden although since she's green.

    Zander seems like he would be a nice choice if you could deal with the difference in height since he is only 15.1 or so.

    Overall if money weren't that big of a deal I'd go for Aleena. She just seems to have that overall "wow" factor to her. (In all honesty I'll probably be dreaming of this one tonight!)

    Aleena is nice. Not only is she gorgeous, but she has nice movement. She seems to have a kind eye and a friendly way of going - I think she would be a great horse because she would look after you, while being able to work at whatever level you wanted her to. She looks steady and she'll help build up your confidence without holding you back. She's pricey, but I think she's well worth the cost.

    Sanjo Spirit also caught my eye. She's flashy and friendly looking. I don't know if she'd be the best choice if you wanted to focus on dressage, but if you're staying in the lower levels, she might be great. Reading her description, I see that she's done a lot. Broodmares, working cows, jumping... she's multi talented and seems like she'd be pretty calm and cool. Another great confidence builder while being quite budget friendly. She is, however, a little smaller than you wanted.

    My overall pick? Rena. The first thing that caught my attention was how similar she looks to Vanna. Her videos show a nice, smart mover and a very workmanlike attitude. She looks good, she seems intelligent and she has a natural flair for dressage. She's flashy without being loud and I think that would be beneficial in a dressage arena. If I was shopping, I'd be inquiring about her.

    LOL, I know I can't afford Rena, if the price isn't there it will be bigm and she is a nice mare.
    Strictly shopping in the herd reduction sale only, unless a small lottery win arrives in the next week or so

    There is something about Parker that draws me to him...but he's very green and they don't have vid of him under saddle. Then again, that may just be my stock horse eye that likes him LOL.

    If you'd give me a year, I will have a 2 year old Perch/paint that should mature to 16.2, guaranteed big movement, and green broke that I would part with for free just to know that he would be going to a good home .

    What about that cross you were posting in other thread? I thought that one was nice looking (and right price). Personally I liked Parker and Big Dreams (I didn't even look for those pricey ones).

    But(!) I'm pretty positive you can go up to the training level and may be all way up to 1st on Gilmore.

    If I win the lottery, I will buy Rena for you in exchange for the right to come and snuggle Ace and Angel anytime I want. Deal?

    The guy on the other thread IS totally awesome but the price is totally awful, she is asking $4 500, which if he had some experience would not be to bad, but totally unbroke, not so much.

    I'm sure Gilmore could make it, but riding Bert has converted me to bigger horses, I may just ride him and Bert for another year, then go steal smrobs big guy
