Hunter under saddle prospect? *pics and vids*

Hi there!
Im new to this forum and would just like to introduce myself.
I live in Australia and I own a APHA filly named Coda, we compete in halter.
Shes will turn 2 in 6 days. Im an English rider and my main areas are eventing. Now Coda is a westerny type (movement, headset etc).
So I want to do something we BOTH excel at, and this is where I have come to the conclusion of HUS, I can do my thing and she can do her thing.
We will be breaking her in as of April/May next year.
Pedigree:http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/pl+m...ken+conclusion
So heres some videos of her on the lounge, and some confo ones.
Tell me what you think!





In the videos in the roundyard (one with the grass) she could see something in the surrounding paddock, thats why her head was up like a giraffe

Some pics:
This is what she looked like when we purchased her:


and 3months later



and just some between then and now (not in order)










Strangling her mom


and my fav

Oh wow...I can blabber on hey!

She looks like my Joey... bald face and spur spots. :] Gorgeous face. Don't know much about HUS, but she's lovely.

I think she would be really good in HUS. She seems to move out nicely and has a fairly flat knee. Her hocks are ok. She doesn't get super deep but isn't too snappy in the back witch is good. She is also very pretty which helps . How tall is she? Judges of HUS tend to prefer taller, leaner horses than those of western pleasure. Love your accent by the way...lol

I think she is way cute! Why not try HUS? It can't hurt! How competitive are the shows you are aiming for? Are you wanting to do APHA? A smaller horse with great movement will still be good for HUS IMO. Have you thought about all around for her? I think she is a lovely mover!
