I am concerned about this verona. He has a vet check lined up while he's here on trial.
If he stays, he is going back to square one with his training. The girl who has owned him is also green to jumping, and it pained me to see her take him over some of the jumps they had set up when I first pulled into the barn to look at him.
Honestly, I was prepared to walk away but something about his willing attitude and personality just kind of spoke to me. As far as jumping goes, he rounds over the jumps very nice, and his form is excellent. He is willing to listen and doesnt get frustrated when encountering new things on the flat, so I am hoping to use the trial period to see if we can get him to relax a little more and become more responsive to leg pressure.
Fingers crossed my hunch turns out to be right, but I honestly feel like this one is a diamond in the rough
