    Question TB peeps--what do we have here?--Update

    First, I know this topic as been around before, but breeding isn't my "thing" and there is so much info I can't remember it all.

    My trainer has just got a new TB mare. She was really taken by her movement and general appearance. Mare is only 3 so just broken basically. Trainer is a dressage rider so this is a sport horse prospect, no breeding planned.

    We're just curious how this mare looks on paper for dressage/sport:

    Thanks to anyone who contributes!

    Thanks, it was her pic that caught my trainer's eye--she's very sturdy and short-coupled, not the long rangy thoroughbred type at all. She's also described as being very sensible and willing to work.

    I love seeing Talc in a pedigree. He and Rock Talk are known movement contributors.

    It's no surprise she's a nice mover; every single horse from her fourth generation forward is known for producing good movers.

    She's a knockout, huh? Especially for a 3-year-old. Love her bloodlines, too. AP Indy and Danzig up close <3

    (incidentally, I love the lanky TB type, but I'm drooling over this sturdy critter)

    On paper, 2 thumbs up.

    In the picture, vet the front pasterns and feet carefully.

    Isn't she nice? I saw a video of her working, and she has super nice balance for green-as-grass youngster.

    With Nasrullah, Secretariat, Northern Dancer and Rajah Baba she should have a really good shot as a dressage performer--if her head is into it!!! Attitude counts for a lot.

    At three I wouldn't be pushing her yet. She may look mature but if you push too fast, too soon, you could make her sour--light riding, but not a lot of ring work for a year, or two, at which time her mind should be more fully in the game.

    About the front pasterns and feet--I had a Northern Dancer great granddaughter who had longish pasterns, never seemed to bother her but then I never rode her into the ground either. I might x-ray the feet to check for clubbiness but, depending on her price tag, I wouldn't go crazy with the x-rays--you'll get your answer when you put her in full training.

    I know you say there may be no interest in breeding but I would have the vet do a breeding soundness evaluation, check for anomalies. Sometimes things happen we can't anticipate and it would be good to have a baseline for comparison--for future reference.

    Nice lookin' mare! Best of luck...

    OMG! My trainer has your girl's half sister on her farm!

    http://www.pedigreequery.com/talented+treasure

    She is in her lesson string. Can't speak as a dressage prospect as it is a H/J facility, but she is one of my personal favorite rides with The. Best. Mind! Super smart, scopey, and more heart than just about anything I've ever sat on. She can jump around the "big" ring with the more advanced students and then turn right around and babysit the little ones over poles and crossrails. We also use her for our IEA program and is a favorite in our region - took her to Zones last year and she qualified every single kid that drew her for nationals.

    So, I'm a bit of a fan

    Would love to see pics of your girl.

    Wow,that's neat! Mare actually belongs to my trainer, she rolled in with the shipper just before midnight last night so I haven't seen her in person yet.

    There's a little pic on top of her pedigree that you can click on, I'll try to update later with pics once she starts in work.

    I saw her on the website and she is a knockout. Good luck with her.

    Cute mare (now nicknamed "Brooke") is settling in at trainer's farm. She seems quite sensible as nothing seems to spook or disturb her, but she is very insecure--turns her back to you when you go into her stall and was instantly attached to the mare in the next stall. Lots of attention and treats are changing the stall behavior already

    Curious thing--vet was out when I was there and trainer had him look at mare's hind feet, as she appeared to have a serious case of scratches. (Being treated.) Turns out it was not scratches, but some kind of physical trauma to the skin, there was so much dead tissue he was actually able to trim some off

    My guess was rope burns, but vet said he's seen racehorses who kick in their stall have a horseshoe put on their pastern like a bracelet, and it could have been caused by that. Skin underneath looks healthy but he's not sure the hair will ever grow back.

    Just for fun I plan to keep this thread updated periodically as she goes into training,
