I am a dedicated Dressage rider/trainer, and have been looking for a project horse for some time. I recently came across a four-year-old 16.1hh Irish Sport Horse that is up for a 6-9 month free lease off farm. I'm guessing the woman who owns him just wants him to have more of a job for the winter and I have the facility work with him in. He's been ridden for about a year now, trails, small fences, lots of groundwork- So a good base, but still green. I don't know too much about the breed, but am hoping to finish him up on Dressage until the summer. It sounds like a good deal, here are some pictures:
These pictures are from his owner, I have not gone to meet him yet. The woman is being a bit vague as far as giving me contact information, yet asks me to call her without giving me a number. I hope it will all work out...
Anyway, do you guys think he would be a good dressage prospect? Anyone have an ISH? Any tips?
Thanks in advance~ :)
