Hi there :) Thank you for your reply.
I have been riding for 13 years -- but I did take a break for awhile. I am looking for something that I can school myself, and eventually work up with together . I definitely won't be taking him into jumping straight away, but I had to test him to see if he was willing, for before buying (phew). I've schooled some horses in the past, but never ever had the chance to have my own! ^^ - two, who were manical, insane, human killers -- er.. well, not quite, but rather crazy! No one else wanted to ride them, so I did. It did feel to a degree, like I had my own horse. I stopped riding after the one I loved and rode for three years was sold off by the stableyard owner, after all my hard work with him. *sniff* I can now afford my own! :) (been back at riding in advanced lessons for about three months. Granted you can't see it on those pics, LOL) I also have an instructor who REALLY knows what he is doing
His name is Baltic Sea (someone mentioned he had good bloodlines)? You can view it at the registry at jockeyclub.com
I also wasn't sure if its visible but on the picture where he's trotting we're doing a circle and not going large.
If I do get him, i'd be spending a lot of time schooling him, and working with poles. Eventually, after a few months or when he and I are ready, i'd like to start working with jumping - nothing massive though. Hehe i'm a bit skittish when it comes to jumping big things
I just read that horses with no bascule make for horrible jumpers further on, so its rather disheartening ><
He is a big boy though, and it was a teeny jump, so maybe he just didn't feel the need to arch, lol
