I would teach him probably teach him dressage first (im 17 and I know A LOT about horses :P) then show jumping, and we teach eventing in our lessons so we have a XC course xD but, we have smaller xc jumps for our kid tht are learning, and I would get him used to that first. But yeahh...xD
That $90,000 surgery must be a typo? He could probably get a heart transplant for that amount.

This free horse may cost you millions in heart ache. I'd go for a different horse.

I agree with Cherie, it is not the re-training that concerns me. Pretty much any horse that hasn't been completely blown out can be retrained for just about anything. What does concern me is the previous leg injury. If the vet suggests wraps/boots if you jump him, then my mind tells me that means he simply shouldn't be jumping because that leg is already compromised.

Also, which of your posts is actually him? You have posted pictures of 2 different horses. The first horse is a chestnut, the second is a brown (and I'm not even sure that the picture of the mounted shooting is the same horse as the other 2), which is he?

I thought the horses looked different smrobs, but I thought maybe it was just because sometimes I stink at color differences in their subtle forms? Hmmm

*sets out the troll traps*

Just in case :)

Okay, I'm calling BS on this poster, who is obviously either a troll or a little girl playing horsey fantasy land. I've looked through some other of their posts and they have posted pictures of at least 5 different horses claiming that they are all pictures of "BoBo".

At least 2 of the different horses can be seen in this thread (I am convinced that the horse pictured doing mounted shooting is different than the other 2 pictures of a brown horse...and those 2 pictures may not even be of the same horse). Pictures of 3 more completely separate horses can be seen here
Does 6 seem old for an ottb to be retired?.

And, while she claims to be 17 here in this thread, she claims that she is 12 in this other thread.
Quiz for young riders!

For that reason, I am reporting this poster and I am going to let the mods sort this whole thing out. It is so frustrating to see valuable members wasting their time answering posts honestly when the OP is just a bratty kid playing fantasy land.

In one of those threads, she owns Bobo and is already competing in eventing.

In this thread she is possibly buying him, and wondering if he will be able to compete due to that leg injury.

I call Troll!

I can't say anything, honestly. I too had an active imagination at 12 years old. Thank the lord my parents didn't let me play around on the internet ;) Who knows what I would have gotten myself into. Thankfully I got to use my imagination in other ways, like sitting in my tree house with the neighborhood kids playing "oregon trail" and pretending our dogs wild coyotes so that we couldn't get down.

Good times!

I reported her for the same thing an hour or so ago. Clearly different horses. I do wish more parents would monitor their kids internet activity. :(
