    Cool George Moose jumping clinic:

    Good basic form but needs to spend a little more time on gymnastic exercises. Lovely glistening coat and polished hooves.

    Default #2 Shows potential as an equitation mount.

    He has potential with a very tight end, but yes, gymnastics will tidy up his evenness. His effort might be hindered by the small height of the jump.

    He has a very eager look and his ears make it very clear how much he likes his job.

    Default #4 Perhaps a career in dressage would be more appropriate.

    Definitely pick this one if jumping talent is what you are looking for.

    This moose has excellent reach with hind legs and is nicely forward, but shows zero acceptance of the bit. His short, thick neck will make suppling nearly impossible and limit his scope over fences

    I can't stand how everyone thinks they need to pay $$$$$$ for a moose. It's a conspiracy between trainers to trick you out of your money instead of teaching you how to ride. Back on the good ol' days, when people were actual deersman instead of lazy, terrified ammies, everyone rode these!

    No offense, but that doesn't look like a moose to me. Is it some sort of cross-bred? Or a Gypsy Vanner?

    This one has potential but I recommend placing a pole in front of the jump to encourage him to actually jump it instead of just trotting over it.

    He could also use a fake tail, and braids would be nice.

    That's her point exactly! Before everyone had a moose, reindeer were the breed of choice. Good old fashioned AMERICAN-BRED CARIBOU.

    That one might want to event. I have a feeling there's a drop on the landing side of that jump.

    Ah, I see. Well, I think the beauty of living in a free country is that everyone can ride the quadruped of their choice. Antlers optional.

    I think if this breed caught on, the next helmet improvement would have to involve face masks. You could poke your eye out on those antlers!

    I must say I do have concerns about the spur choice!
