Here she is! What do you think?

So my OTTB and I are beginning the long road from spoiled, spooky pasture puff to Olympic eventer. Just kidding! But I would like to do some low level dressage and eventing with her. I know you can't tell much in the way of conformation from this pic, but just in general, what do you think? Any potential? I wasn't sure where to put this since its not a confo critique :)

From this photo I think she looks great, looks like she'd be a very nice mover.

I agree with oobiedoo! She's a good looking girl. Maybe jumping? I'm real partial to OTTB's. I've had sonny, an OTTB, for several years now, and he's awesome!

Thanks, everyone!! That's good to hear.

I hope she will love jumping as much as I do. I walked her over a groundpole the other day and she tripped and spooked herself. Great start, huh? ;)

hahaha, horses are so funny.

I was teaching my mare how to go over some jumps since its just a good thing for every horse to know (you never know when theres going to be nowhere around, so you have to go over). She was so goofy about it.

Your mare looks very nice and I can see how you'd be pleased with her. Can't wait to hear more about her!

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music

Now you've started something. When you are a few months into dressage you'll need to supply us with more pics to see how the two of you are doing.

I am a sucker for thoroughbreds! Loving, loyal, and willing to please! Not to mention beautiful! I'm not good when it comes to confo, but she looks gorgeous!

Thank you!! I will definitely keep you all updated. She's VERY smart, and either knows a lot more than I think she does or picks things up really quickly. I don't know much about her history except that she's, again, been a spoiled pasture puff for the past three years, courtesy of me.
