    Default For fun- show me a good mover!!

    Show me videos of good movers!!I'm always trying to learn and I'm always interested in seeing other peoples viewpoints!! Sometimes I am browsing the sale ads or farm websites and just about everyone describes the horse in question as a good mover. So after you post your video please tell me what you think qualifies the horse. Whether it's a stupendous trot or an amazing jump!!

    Crown Point ridden by Scott Stewart. This horse is a freak of a mover. His trot is beautiful and a little better than his canter, IMO. He also jumps well. I don't think he's ever done much competition wise though, someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    This is a horse I just sold. The video doesn't give you the sense of just how powerful he moved in person, but you can see how lovely he moves. His canter is as good as his trot.

    Zenyatta. Rachel Alexandra. Forever Together. Pretty much any grade 1 stakes horse... Good movers go places efficiently.

    That pony has a really big stride or its tiny frame!

    Default good mover

    I think people underestimate the importance of how much the topline contributes to a "good mover". A really good mover should naturally carry himself long and low and slightly round without much input from the rider.

    I agree. I think in the end my monkey boy is going to end up a good mover because, in part, he naturally carries over his top line. Here he is just a few months under saddle, still unbalanced but straight and forward, in a dressage saddle that day but he is definately a hunter. This is his natural, uninfluenced carriage.

    The second direction is a more condensed way to see trot & canter - starts around 1:15

    To REFRESH: If I were in the market for a hunter, I'd run right out and buy that mare "Little Black Dress"! Lovely mover, and I'm a sucker for a floppy ear'd horse.............not to mention, a cool name.

    Tahoe is a nice mover for both Hunters and dressage.

    I beat her in the hack in KY a few years ago. I was leasing a horse at the time and he only lost one hack the whole time I rode him. KY, FL, TX -- didn't matter. Wish I had a video of him!!

    This trick is finding a beautiful mover that jumps with it's knees in it's eye balls -- doesn't happen very often.

    I won pretty much every hack on him! He was a FREAK mover! We won the hack at Pony Finals and Devon
