    So he's a 2015 three year old? It sounds to me like this young colt is actually acting more like a lost lonely baby than a stallion. I suspect that about two weeks or less after he's gelded he'll...

    I didn't mean to imply the tb canter was not uphill. The good jumping tbs I've seen do have uphill canters. What they lack is the more vertical movement that you tend to see in the legs of horses...

    I don't think there is a timber or hurdle horse who does not kick back when jumping, regardless of the size of the fence. The fourth fence in this link will give you a good view of this quality in...

    Thank you.

    So, for breeding warmbloods the canter you want is all about power. When you say expression of power, how exactly would you describe that "expression"?

    Also, I was interested in...

    How focused on the gallop are warmblood breeders when choosing a stallion?

    I'm not offended but I don't think it's particularly effective. The contrast between the horse and him is too glaring, he should have the chicken pox or something so they blend together more.

    Also, both Tri Jet and Alydar are nice to see for sport horses and they're not too far back in his pedigree. He looks like a nice individual.
