    She looks a bit cranky in the pics and doesn't scream "dressage." Might just be the wording but I'm picturing a stubborn, disrespectful, flighty thing.

    I like the gelding you posted better.

    Lol this is actually my mare. She use to have an attitude problem, now she's extremely respectful. She just always has her ears pinned back so its hard to get good pictures.

    Oh my gosh don't I feel foolish! I thought you were posting ads if horses you wanted to buy. So sorry!

    She's just camera shy. ;)

    (Maybe consider rewording your ad a bit? Terms like "very forward" make me think of a difficult to handle horse.. And from your clarification it doesn't sound like she's like that.)

    Lets just put it as she needs a special type of rider ;)

    The dressage trainer working with her absolutely loves her, thinks that she's a blast to ride, and is actually considering buying her, but unfortunately moneys tight. I've had other dressage people pull me aside to tell me how she is a natural born dressage horse :/

    But most other people in the world can't stand her. Im not good at wording things!

    I mean she's my first horse and im 17. I've learned how to work with her and have no problems now, but like I said she needs someone able to set boundaries.

    Ill try and figure out how to reword that thanks!

    From the photos posted she isnt moving like a dressage horse. Get some decent photos of her moving and videos. The price is right if she is as you say. I would remove the gaming photo.

    You need to repost pictures of her being ridden at LEAST in frame and in an ENGLISH or DRESSAGE saddle. Your trainer should be the rider. It helps to show that your mare isn't a one woman horse. Fine to show the barrel racing, too, and emphasize that she is multi-talented. Nobody needs to know from the ad that you thought she failed as a barrel racer. My gosh--SOOOO many newbies are buying green horses that nobody can ride. At LEAST she is being ridden and learning to be quiet and obedient.
    I would post her as an all around riding mare and show ANY pictures that demonstrate she is calm being tied, handled and trailered, too. Then, you can mention that she is being trained for Dressage, as well. ALSO, post ALL pictures that show she is alert and friendly. I have passed IMMEDIATELY on horses that don't like people. It shows that they are green and spoiled. Don't see that in this mare, but I thought I'd mention it.
    If you want her to have a good home the Dressage community isn't looking for more QH's in the show ring, so you won't get a good response.
    Nice mare.

    She's a nice looking mare! I am about an hour from where you are, small world!

    She doesn't scream dressage to me, as her conformation looks more suited for western, but she is a pretty mare, I bet she would make a nice western pleasure horse with more training. Although basic dressage is good for every horse, no matter what the horse is going to be doing. But if you are wanting to attract a potential dressage home for her, I would also post some photos of her with your dressage trainer working her. A video would be a really good idea too, ask your trainer to ride her for you and get a short video doing some basic dressage.

    Anyway, I wanted to add, I think she has a sweet look to her, her ears are forward and she is looking at you in some pictures, and in the others she has her ears back and is listening.

    Would love to see a video of her.

    Replace the picture where is tied outside of a stall to one where she is looking towards the camera, ears forward.
