    My perch cross is wicked smart. Like, smarter than me. And very, very quick on his feet. If he sees it, he can jump it.

    Yeah, I thnk "draft cross" is fairly useless. Some are chunky and steady, but both of mine have been distinctly more reactive than the WB or the Irish x I have had. The Belgian cross was just spooky...

    You should definitely look at eventing barns (check out the fb group eventing horses for sale and the site sporthorse nation). There are plenty of ammie friendly horses who would rather stay in a...

    Not to suggest you keep throwing money at this, but have you done a bone scan? If he has an old injury this would certainly give you a location and sense of severity.

    Most people hear draft cross and think steady, chunky, a bit earthbound but good-minded. There is a nice market for those horses, if not an overly high-priced one.
    But they can make up fancier and...

    As you guys know (at least GotSpots and born free), my horses tend NOT to be your typical event types and I know I do an atypical amount of fitness work for the lower levels (or have, in the past....

    Yes, subk, I agree about using one good canter set plus recovery as a gauge.
    Full TBs are obviously a totally different story and once the OP has done this work and seen how her horse responds...

    Why thank you! I of course think they are princes :D
    The big man, now 20, came to me as a 9 year old 17.2h WB dressage refugee. He had done some eventing at novice for his career change, and one...

    So, I am the queen of the plus-sized horse brigade and have fitted up several non-Tbs for BN-T (and a little bit beyond).
    All of this advice is good and I totally agree that you have plenty of time....

    I like sid's list.
    For me, 24-7 turnout in very large field with varied terrain and a herd of buddies for stimulus and socialization.

    Very good farrier care.

    Regular (6-8 months) saddle fit...

    I just sold a 7 year old Albion (so, I would consider that medium range, not truly high end) via Middlleburg Tack in Virginia. You would have to ship it (I dropped it off on the way to the vet...

    If you are new to evrnting, it really, really helps to get a horse with some cross country experience. It can be young and green but has hunter paced or schooled out and about. You want a really good...

    There's a big difference between how it looks in a closeup pic and how it looks on a moving horse. Doubt it's as obvious IRL.

    Nope. Had one who was hard to catch so he wore a breakaway for a little while until we sorted that out. Otherwise, no. They live on 70 acres and the only times they have gotten loose they have wanted...

    Get him a massage and then an appt with a good chiro/acupuncture vet. Both professionals can show you exercises to help him stay more comfortable after treatment.

    My retired horse goes in a Thorowgood as it fits him and my husband very well. I ride in it a few times a week and find it very comfy. Horse is a wide WB and I typically need a narrow twist.
