Iíve just bought a very green 11 year old, who I hope to compete on, in Western Dressage. I had hoped that it would be a quick journey, looking at her progress, it is going to take a while. I think she is worth it, she is my Warmblood, bought cheap because of her greenes, Iím investing a lot of time and money in her, itís a gamble. Pay and pray!
If you want to jump her, I would want to see her free jumped at least, get a feel for her scope and willingness.
