I suppose its all about the package too. Thank you so much, you have pointed out a few little things a pulled a blind eye too!

Yes haha at least someone agrees with me! His nice but i wouldnt say $150,000 worth! I couldnt dream on paying that for something that cant even breed!
Yep, there's definitely a difference between a big moving pony and a huge moving 16hh+ warmblood. I would suggest you try to have as many rides as you can on big moving hacks over 16hh to give you an idea of how it feels. Many people seem to over estimate their ability when it comes to warmbloods. Though their big paces can be comfortable enough to ride - when you try to put them together and get collection, you will be working extremely hard. Try sit trotting a huge moving warmblood with a naturally swinging back, in extended trot - HARD!!

After yr 10 im going to trade school for an apprenticeship in equine science and breeding. You go to school for a week every four week block. Most of the people you do work experience for around were i am are Warmblood studs so hopefully i will pick up enough poo for a few rides on some. ;) thats usually there logic they dangle a nice expensive stallion infront of you so your inspired to pick up more poo. Ill shovel extra hard!

You have the experience and the talent to make it to the top! Your the best 14 year old rider around that I know!

Thanks Ellen, That means alot. You must be mistaken though because you dont realise how much talent you have!! Has anyone heard of Dreamtime xzibit? He isnt mine but i would sure love if he was! He is simply breathtaking to watch! He is Warmblood X Anglo Arabian, they say his Arabian warmblood but im assuming thats what it means. I know he is an arabian derivative. but is also approved Warmblood.

Sounds like you've got yourself set up for a good future with horses JackofDiamonds - you are VERY lucky to have access to such excellent riders and studs in QLD. I would absolutely love to spend some time there, I've got a good friend just out of the Gold Coast with horses so planning on heading up there to visit some time in the future.
At the moment I have to make do with clinicians coming from interstate and overseas once a month. I have a Tor Van Den Berg clinic coming up in a couple of weeks that I'm pretty excited about!

ZOMG YES!! Beautiful movement!

Haha we are both talented, I mean, who can ride a horse bareback, backwards and doubling, no hands at the same time!There is no way that I have the talent to make it. I have been told that by people at PC (bahh) but in shows I have been told I am good? WTH?

Its my dream to work with horses, and am very lucky my parents and friends support me. Im excited about this oppourtunity, because even though i may have to poo pick for 2yrs i have friends who have done it and have gone on to ride in Germany and Asia in stables with the likes of Anky ect. If i work hard enough maybe, just maybe, there is a chance i could get there. Its amazing the horse idustry here! I mean ive been in the elite show scene but im meeting riders who ride and work overseas and are qualifying for the olympics its just crazy! Tor Van Den Berg, is amazing! You should have lots of fun and will definately learn loads. You will have to tell us how it goes!

Ellen isnt he just awsome! A saw him a few months ago at the vet hospital looking feral. It was so weird seeing him as a "horse" compared to him in the show ring!
