This is a red dun QH I'm probably going to buy. I did a test ride with three other better riders than I am (we all rode her), and it was great, especially considering she's a 4 year old, newly broke horse. She was very forward, but easy to control. Very willing. A little nervous, but that was to be expected. She handled her nerves well. She's trusting of her rider, even when it's a new rider to her. Not once did her head come up or did she give any indication of freaking out. When she got a little too forward, we just put her into circles with gentle direct rein and she calmed right down.
She still has a lot of work to do with her training, and of course I will have a trainer help me with that, but I'd love to get your comments on what you see in these videos, good or bad.
At the point these were taken, she had about 16 rides on her; short sessions, no cantering yet. (She has since started cantering, and I hear it's going very well and she's very enthusiastic about the work.) She has passed a PPE with xrays of her knees (due to a procedure she had done as a filly to make sure her joint grew straight) with flying colors.
Sorry about the quality of the 3rd video. I think you can still see a lot, even though it's not so great (and our commentary is kind of inane!)
Oh, and I have another thread here (link following) asking for help with names, so if you're interested in helping me with that, feel free! https://www.horseforum.com/horse-talk...ed-dun-616073/
