    Wicked? Awesome? Somebody's from New England. We've got plenty of good eventing here. Definitely give it a try.

    Bahahaha yup I'm a Mainah, I admit it!
    I definitely will think about trying it! He;s the kind of horse whos so smart he gets bored easily so I don't think settling on one discipline is going to cut it!

    Honestly I'm not really sure. I just find it aesthetically pleasing. Everything looks pretty proportional and just well put together. He's a little straighter through the hocks than I like, but it's so minor compared to how nicely put together the rest of him is. It makes me laugh when people insist that imperfectly conformed horses are mostly useless for more high impact horse disciplines.

    One of the most amazing horses I've ever ridden looks like a nag out in the pasture, but you get on him and he's got stellar movement and a jump to die for and he's had little to no soundness issues throughout his life and is jumping 3'6"-3'9" at 27 years old still.
