If you haven't already friended Allie Conrad on FB do so. The Canter Mid-America horses she posts are 1) stunning, 2) chosen for their eventing potential, and 3) have usually been schooled around So Pines woods and over little xc obstacles and ridden through water.
Re your original Canter cutie photo: what an unfortunate picture, but the clue is "some time off would...." I think he's had a career ending injury, but just recently and any horse that's been sound enough to race for 6 seasons will probably recover fine.
