    But if I was judging a class and a good moving came along, nicely engaged and tracking up... well no duh, I'd like him more than that good mover who was not, for whatever reason. But it is a hunter hack, not really the same degree or type of engagement is being asked for as in dressage, just a good ground covering efficient gait.
    This, plus the age of the horse. I certainly don't expect a yearling to have the engagement asked of a 3+ year old.

    netg,

    My TB mare is actually purpose bred for steeplechasing. They are called National Hunt horses. Until I moved here I hadn't realised both types were bred. They are typically a bigger more robust type of TB. Stella is a very good mover for a TB and built uphill. She has a fabulous front, nice hind leg, but needs improvement behind. So am mindful of that when breeding. Her daughter (on the vid) is like her mother in movement butore powerful.

    I love NH TB mares! You can really find some good ones for breeding sport horses.

    I couldn't find a newer video including trot but to me this mare has an ideal trot and canter for the hunter ring http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9guPbGoZy8

    Dancing foal: He's very impressive but I really hate those dressage horses who you can't hardly tell the trot from the passage.

    Did you bump up a 2-year-old thread just to post that? She's a decent mover; canter is better than her trot, but I wouldn't call her great.

    I actually like the trot of the mare, but I don't like the canter. It looks disjointed to me. Wonder if she's young?

    Hind end seems to trail at both gaits. Just thought it was an interesting horse to use as an example in an old thread.

    Of course, your Water Music and RosMel's Millenium have been the best two examples post.

    So does anyone know what ever became of Crown Point? His video still pops up when people post examples of good movers.

    I have seen that mare in person and you are correct something is a little funny with the hind end at both gaits. Very weird video to post in this thread..


    I believe Crown Point is clocking around in the childrens

    Just guessing, but perhaps this was posted because the horse is for sale? No better advertising than to put it on a "show me a good mover" thread.

    ETA I don't intend to be cynical, it's just that, to my eye, in this video the horse doesn't stand out as an exceptional mover.

    Yeah, I saw this thread and posted my favorite in 2010 of Rumba!!! This thread has been brought back from the dead. And of course I watched the video AGAIN....

    Agree with Tha Rigde's response.

    What's sad is seeing a certain someone posting video of a certain pony back there as an example. Post 135.

    Edited because I went back to look and this isn't the thread where I brought said pony up as an example. He truly was an amazing mover.

    Nope. You might have also, but the one I referred to was posted by the owner herself, while pony was still around (and probably for sale or lease, hence the posting!). I also wondered if that's how this got picked up after two years of inactivity.

    Crown point is in my barn. He's leased and yes, he's been very successful as a Children's Hunter.

    Cool!

    And how funny that the horse world and this BB turn out to be so small sometimes.

    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.
    Holy cow! That is an amazing trot.

    That's weird. When I was editing my post there were no other posts. Oh well. As mentioned in my edited post, it must've been another thread where I posted a link to him as a good mover.
