Yes, my daughter rode him extensively at a w/t/c and jumped him 5 times. While I want her to be able to do some small, local competitions (and I think DraftyAiresMum has expanded enough on the suitability of the horse for that, but I will add that he already has may firsts in hunter/jumper and dressage), we also want a horse that is safe (he is bombproof) and that she can learn on. My coach's comment was that she would learn a lot from him because she needs to use the right cue (ie, seat position) to get him to pay attention. He is very forgiving of mistakes, but will just ignore the wrong cue. The horse also has to be a good backyard horse, hack out easily and be a relatively easy keeper. He meets all of those criteria.
Also, I understand that even with a contract, things can go wrong, but that doesn't mean I am not doing my due diligence before we have him transported here. It just gives me additional peace of mind.
I apologize for not going into too much detail for the time being... I am very busy trying to sort out all the details of the purchase on top of working full time. I promise to provide more details when things are more settled. Even if it means taking time away from barn time!!!! :)
