My mom is considering buying a horse for me once we have our financial status together as my trainer says she thinks I've "outgrown" my lease horse :cry:
(in ability not in height/size).

Anyhow, I came across this gelding and to me he looks great. I'm planning on progressing to 3'6 to the upper 4ft. A little short(15'3), but he seems to go over those jumps with little effort.

His canter looks interesting to me, I can't decide if I like it or not. It seems kinda like... mincing? If you know what I mean. I'll try to think of a better word to describe it.

Where is the video of him jumping 3'6"?

Seems to me they have a lot of 'brake' on him. I have a feeling he's being run at for the higher jumps. He's not at all engaged in that video and unless he can engage a whole lot more, he's not going to have the power to propel himself over the height and width of a 4' course. I'm not even convinced he's got the natural scope for what you want to do.

He is sure cute.

:)
I love his Jump he seems soo calm.. I don't see him jumping 3'6 in the video but that doesnt mean he can't do it...
Some people advertise a horse without the real proof. I'd keep looking just in case maybe go look at him see how he moves in person and check him out just in case. But also get some more ideas and others to go look at.

And some people advertise their horse as being able to do things it can't.

My point was...the video doesn't show what the seller is claiming...therefore that needs to be looked into further. It makes no sense to show a sale video of a GP dressage horse doing a level 2 test, just as it makes no sense to show a supposed 3'6" jumper capable of doing more...are the fences even 2'6", particularly when you consider the price tag. To me, that's immediately a red flag, so I'd want to investigate. It may simply be an oversight...though I suspect not.
