    He looks awesome! Are those about 2'? The 3 year old hunters I believe show between 2'9 and 3' which is a lot to me, for a 3 year old. My kid will be 3 in May, I started him in January. He is just...

    3 Year Old Hunters

    I have never shown in the 3 year old hunters, and admittedly really never even watched. I grew up trained that horses really couldn't /shouldn't show over fences so young, and have been off doing...

    The Oil Derrick is the BEST description I have ever heard! I have had Arabs and TB's that have gone through "phases" too but the phases may have been more brief due to the fact that overall they had...

    Edgar, you have/had my baby's sire! And same...great mover, very athletic, WONDERFUL brain, great free jump. Everything works except the, yes, oil derrick. Haha that is such a perfect analogy and I...

    Hahahahahaha!!! That's really funny. He has the head of a 17 hand "finished growing" horse. He has the neck of a baby. And the body somewhere in between! He looks like a 12 year old human boy who...

    His body is babyish but the body itself is very smooth and there is definitely no doubt he is a Warmblood LOL. That head could not come from anything else, nor the bone :) But since I am a bit of a...

    I should clarify, his neck is set on very well and is adequate length. It's just kind of a "stick" LOL! He is also all legs for sure...
  10. 2 year old Oldenburg, perhaps a Giraffe cross?

    Hi there, I recently purchased a 2.5 year old Oldenburg baby. I have owned/ridden/trained Warmbloods. I have owned, started, trained many (non WB) 2 year olds of a variety of breeds. What I have NOT...

    It won't affect where your horse puts his head, that's more a training and/or bit situation. But it is a comfortable bridle that interferes less, perhaps, than some. I've had them and like them. I...

    That absolutely can be true, but it's the exception rather than the rule and usually has to do with the rest of the horse's conformation, too. Because you can't really try the ottb's you can only...

    You cannot buy a horse with downhill conformation banking on that changing. It may but it probably won't. Especially not at 3...it will probably improve but remain downhill...

    Most track horses are shod like this and it is not the reason for the conformation. Conformation is conformation, feet are feet. I am sure the angles can be improved but these are not extreme...

    I have been told she is very sweet however there is SO much to worry about conformationally...the back, weak hind end, the really thickened hind pasterns/fetlocks, etc, the movement...I wouldn't...

    At 1-2 I'd expect croup-high in a TB, at 3 not as much. Usually people (sellers) tell you they will even out to get the sale. Frankly when I've operated on that assumption they've remained downhill...

    Narrow reins and comfy stirrups?

    So, I prefer the feel of narrow reins. I have very thin fingers and small bones, and standard width reins (whether plaited, braided, or rubber/web) feel too bulky. My fingers are long but everything...
