Critique my horse please!
5 Attachment(s)
This is Bandera. She is Hanoverian and Canadian with some Tb. She is 6 years old and 17hh ( 16.3 3/4 ). Please critique her! Hoe much do you think she is worth? What do you think her potential is? Sorry i dont have any videos of her jumping a course... I know she was topping 3'6 and showing 3'3 hunter jumpers. Jumping video and pic is when she was 5. Thanks!

( my trainer is riding her and i am riding my trainers horse)

Oh bottom two pics are the most recent. She has gained weight and hopefully muscle mass, can you tell? My trainer was actually telling me that a lady came up to her while i was riding and asked who the new horse was. my trainer told her it was bandera and she argued that bandera was a tb and that horse was a warmblood. i dont know if she ended up believing her or not, but there has big improvements in the past month or 2

Oh and breeding wise, her dad showed grand prix and went to spruce meadows and her mom jumped at i think grand prix level. her dad is now doing eventing. She was bred by guy, lue, and butch thomas. guy thomas trained her and showed her and she is IJF ( international jumper furirity ) listed as a 4 year old. She jumped clear at her 4 year old trials, the course was set at 3'3.

I think she's quite pretty and well built.
Her neck is set a little high and could use more muscling. She has a high wither as well but i dont think thats a bad thing for jumpers.
Not sure how much she'd be worth though as i'm not big in the jumpers but just giving an overall confo judgement.

Bump! Please help :)

Ah! i didnt even see your post! thanks :) i have been working on getting her neck and hind end more muscled. any ideas on how to do that? Thanks!

She's cute, but she hasn't been taught how to use her body correctly. She's not moving through her back, and it seems that the emphasis has been put on "head down" and "slow down" rather than roundness and collection. I will reply in more detail later.

OKay thanks! let me know later because i really want all the help i can get with this horse! she just started being asked to get into frame about 2 1/2 months ago and she is tough... I had a clinic with volker browman (sp?) and he said she was one of the hardest he has seen in a while... : P so anything is helpful!
