    I am planning to do a bit of everything with her ^-^. At the moment im going to be focusing on ground work, getting her used to just relaxing instead of expecting to gallop each time I get on her. But i'll hopefully be doing some jumping with her, she has perfect legs and feet and is a good height aswell. I might also get into dressage and eventing, sort of 3 day event type activities, but nothing at a high level.

    Congrats on your new horse. Vinty ( my ottb) is 6 and I've had her since June she's super fun and a great horse. We are going to the royal this year for the tb breeding class. I'm going to ask this question because everyone here knows ottb's did any of you guys have a problem with mounting??? I am and vinty is 16.25 and I ride English and I can't ground mount but I have to get my intsructor to hold her down while I get on..... Does anyone have any solutions? Don't mean to take over the thread or anything.....

    I used a mounting block and get on her in a corner so the fence is in front of her so she stands then I praise her for standing when I get on and it seems to work for me

    I use a mounting block and mount with her head facing the rail I really enforced the whoa on the ground so I would use verbal cues this with her head facing the rail she does really good and I always use lots of praise when she does well

    I use a mounting block in the corner of the areana and point her towards the rail and mount and this works really well for me
