What do you think?

So my trainer is thinking about getting a young horse to train. She is going to teach me everything she knows and it would sort of be like a "project horse". Eventually I would lease the horse when she is old enough to ride. I wanted everyone's opinions on this gorgeous filly

She looks a little over at the knee, her neck and back are a little short, and something about her back legs bothers me, I think its that her hocks are a little straight. But she is only a yearling. Many of these issues may resolve with time. She does have a nice extended trot and looks to have some great potential. She has an adorable face.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

So do you think it might be worth it to buy her?

Too bad the video is only four seconds long.
I think you should go and see her before making any quick decisions

He knows when you're happy.
He knows when you're confident.
And he always knows when you have carrots.

Ya that's true, I live pretty far away from there though so I wouldn't be able to go see her in person... :-/
