    I might kick myself for asking this - and if it comes across as even slightly trollish plz tell me to MMOB - but I noticed that on "Humble's" page his sire is listed but dam in listed as "unknown."

    Is that possible for a pony like him? Or is it just not listed but in fact probably actually known?

    Quite common, even in derby and GP horses. A lot of times the big name stallion (in this case Blue Rain) is considered the more important part, while the mare may just be a generic broodmare with no registered name. Also, that info is straight from USEF so whoever registered him might just have not known the mare's name off the top of their head, but knew he was by Blue Rain.

    Every time I see that video of Crown Point I let out an audible whimper at how good a mover he is. He's so pretty I could cry.
    Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

    Ah, how I would love to borrow that horse for the side saddle at Devon.

    Not too shabby. Though the first pics were with a dressage rider, he's been almost exclusively bred for hunter babies.

    My apologies, I didn't realize how far back I had gone in threads! I just thought it was a neat topic. To my knowledge the mare is not for sale as the kid is taking her to Junior Hunter Finals. I personally like how she moves. I do think this was shortly after she was imported and she was imported right after having a foal, so green and out of shape.

    I know this is a sales video, but this is NOT my horse (I wish!), so I think it's okay to post - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=58BsT...ature=youtu.be

    I realize that dressage horses move much differently than hunters/jumpers but to me those dressage trots just seem--er--artificially overdone--way too much suspension and animation. Impressive, but not really a natural way of moving.

    JMHO--I'm open to constructive comments but no flames please.

    Crown Point = NICE!

    I'm a dressage rider. To me, the great-moving hunters you guys post look like they're barely moving. I often think, "Okay, but I'd love to see his movement when he's actually USING himself." They always look too slow, unengaged, and often on the forehand.

    Not saying they ARE. Just saying that what we're accustomed to seeing often looks more "correct" than what we're unaccustomed to seeing, even when the other is perfectly correct.
    In order to think outside the box, one must first know what is in the box.

    Absolutely! Correct is different depending on discipline, and once your eye is adjusted to almost exclusively one discipline, the others just look weird.

    My filly is going to be my dressage horse and you can see why here, but when she relaxes and stretches down/out while trotting she has what I think of as a hunter trot to die for! This gives you an idea, at least. I need to get some current video of her, but her pen has too many trees in it to get a decent shot.

    Kadenz and zipperfoot, you are both probably right, and both probably recognizing fads in the other's discipline. A true toe-flipping hunter will not be shuffling along on the forehand, and a truly correct dressage horse will not have his right knee at his nose while his left hind toe hovers an inch off the ground. Not saying they aren't out there, but neither are traditionally correct.

    What would you consider my guy. He is in dressage training and here I'm riding him long and bring him up a bit at times but he is just coming back into work from 4 months off so just trying to build muscles slowly. I will show him dressage but just wondering, I've been out of the hunter ring a while and my daughter will start riding again soon. You think he could hold his own locally?

    Rabicon, he's very cute when he gets going. He'd need less knee action to be all that competitive under saddle but he'll get bonus points for the nice steady-eddy frame, quality to his gait, and over all appealing presence. Those factors alone usually earn plenty of good ribbons locally

    ETA, speaking for the Hunter ring.

    Thanks. Well she wants to jump and I'm not much for her going cross country so I thought hunters maybe the thing. Lol. I'm a chicken mom lol. He is very nice and actually this is his 5th ride I believe after 4 months off and as you can hear very windy so he'd be a good boy I think for her. But he will still be my dressage horse lol

    Here is a video of a horse my friend works with 7 yo Westphalian gelding. This video is months old so he goes much better now. He's won every hack he's been in so far.
