    Have seen a lot but don't know those personally and they seem very quiet and ammy friendly. Have a closer connection to another-- born broke, totall ammy horse, people want to buy the horse every time it goes out in public NICE HORSE

    Of the many sires of "breeding horses" he's one of the few whose get seem to also have "the stuff" to succeed under saddle.

    I have a 5 year old mare and my friend has a 6 year old gelding, out of different TB mares. They are a bit different personality wise but both definitely were born ammy horses. Mine is less reactive (sensitive is definitely never a word I would use for her!) and my friend's is a little more sensitive. I really love mine - the temperament is light years better than her dam's.

    Would be happy to share pics and videos if you wanted to PM me. I have become more interested in the jumper ring so mine is now a jumper (and despite what some people on this board try to say about Westporte, mine is certainly not lacking in scope at all! Saves my butt on a regular basis).

    I also LOVE Fred. I don't know about his offspring but I have met him and he is a sweetheart.

    I have 1 Beste Gold baby and I LOVE HER! She is 5 and is just starting in the pre-green's and has the easiest going mind. I had never heard of Beste Gold prior to purchasing this horse. I actually love her so much I am going back for my second and my best friend is in the process of purchasing a yearling. I show in the Amateur Owner Hunters and they live at my place so they have to be easy or I can't handle them on my own. Great, great minds, even better jumpers.
