    It's only a no no if you aren't a BNT.

    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.
    I'm sorry but this horse does not have the qualities of a 'good moving' hunter. I don't think this is a great example for the OP.

    Equide, I disagree. It's not a prime hunter example and probably wouldn't place well above 3' but it's mostly because of the way the horse carries his head and neck and looks a bit tense and "hot". The horse itself is not a bad mover per-se -- if it relaxed and could poke it's nose out it would probably do just fine in the hacks.

    From the picture and video - yes. Looks like a great mover and jumper. That only reason that horse is under 200,000 (I am SPECULATING ONLY on price) is because it's a 3' hunter and not a 3'6 horse. I imagine he doesn't loose many Children's hacks. Getting up into the pro and "Indoor" 3'6 + ranks it probably wouldn't win every one but would place nicely.

    ^^ It looks like the rider is trying to keep the horse in a frame, so that may be part of it. Is this a green horse? It looks like it's fighting the contact just slightly which may contribute to the "tense" or "hot" look. It would be interesting to see how the horse would respond to a different type of contact.

    If I do say so myself, he's a beautiful mover and a spectacular jumper.

    Lovely jsalem. I am picky about the hind legs at the canter. Love a good separation, a deep hock, and a soft deliberate style of gently lifting and pushing the hind foot. I see too many that look quick and hoppy behind.

    I'm seeing people with lots of ponies as good movers, but horses move different then ponies. How about full sized horses?

    I agree with Equide... I think it's a nice horse but the horses neck connection to it's shoulder is very dressagy or Equitation horse - not hunter.

    It moves okay but there is something about it's knees almost back at the knee when the foot weights - expecially left front - maybe it's the longer pastern length? OR... Maybe it's just me.


    And I cannot believe no one posted Rumba! He is sooo cute:

    ^^ I agree the horse is not a prime example of a hunter frame and type but it certainly doesn't insult the ground. Given a nice correct soft ride it would probably do just fine in the lower level classes.

    (obviously I'm not talking about Rumba. He's one in a million

    Wow! This is what I think of when I think "hunter" mover. He's gorgeous! What a fun ride!
