    I didn't get a chance to read all these to see if this has been posted yet, but OH MY GOSH, look at this filly. This is just stunning!

    This is my youngest from the day that I went to look at him (unbroke, so just free in ring): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjVfzreSMGw
    No Crown Point (who I just watched and loved his movement -- although I agree with the comments about judges will either love him or hate him), but I think he's pretty nice.

    These girls are 3/4 sisters, both by our stallion Beste Gold , out of half sisters, the chestnut's mother is by Feiner Stern out of an Abundance ( sire of Ruxton) daughter. The darker filly's dam is by Davignport from the Abundance mare. This mare is more typey, however both dams did well as youngsters in the Hunter in hand.

    The dark filly is more typical of the giant moving WB and is of the type that many talk about "dumbing down the gaits a bit".

    For as much as you can see with two silly fillies loose in a ring: I think both are lovely hunter types, demonstrating the strength of breeding choices, while also showing differences of infusing different blood.... although the chestnut is a much more "traditional" mover.

    Once they settle a bit you can notice that although the bay is a VERY dramatic mover at trot, the chestnut is very rhythmic and extremely balanced at canter.

    How many of you retract your good mover label if the hind end is trailing way out behind? It matters to me that a horse reaches underneath itself with the rear legs.

    Me. It's about more than the front end.

    to me that is a matter of engagement. If a horse engages and still moves like a washing machine, he ain't a good mover. If he is a good mover, yes I look for engagement, but just because he isn't doing it in that ride or on that video doesn't mean he can't do it. But engaged, not engaged, the washing machine is still a washing machine.

    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.

    I tried the hunter breeding classes with THIS one....

    As you can imagine,they did NOT like him for hunters..... can't imagine why not? LOL. I still laugh thinking about him being in the HB classes.

    A fabulous mover for dressage no doubt, but hunters.... NO.

    This. I have friends that look at nothing but what is happening with the hind end. I know people that look at nothing but the front end. I prefer a great front end with an engaged hind end, a soft, swinging back, and a nose poke. A horse might be daisy cutter-like with a nice hind end, but if it is tense through its back and neck, the whole picture is ruined...IMO.

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

    It depends - I won't claim a horse is a poor mover if it's not engaged at all with poor riding. I expect to see some natural engagement if I'm going to call a horse a fantastic mover, though, for whatever discipline. Certainly I want to see more for a dressage prospect, but if a horse naturally trails out behind with no indication of proper use of the back end, I'm not going to call it a good mover regardless.
    My horse is a dressage diva so I don't have to be.

    I am adding my mare that I bred. She's 4 years of age and she's a Dutch/TB cross. She is bred for jumpers. Now video is not great as you will see but there is some close up stuff of her if you are patient. It's not long so don't worry. This was her first day out anywhere, first time ever in and indoor. She just went to do some warmup stuff to get her used to a show atmosphere. This video is of her going into the big ring for a look around. My trainer is riding her.

    If you ever want to send your mare overseas to a clueless amateur to do dressage with, I'm perfectly willing to take her.

    Somebody else said the same thing to me a few weeks ago. Why not try your mare in dressage and I thought, I just don't think she's a good enough mover for dressage and she has a TB mom. Plus, I am really clueless in that department!

    Thank you very much!

    I think most good jumpers can be dressage horses, too - it's the impulsion and use of the back end, freedom of the shoulder plus uphill tendency which tend to make them good for dressage. Plus, most of the top dressage horses out there have a LOT more TB in them than you realize! (I have my eye on a TB mare with bloodlines I love to possibly purchase and breed half TB/warmblood babies for dressage...)
