    Default Cool yes, but can it do dressage?

    I love when it "trots" at the end.

    It's a little over at the knee for my taste...

    Love this quote from one of the comments, "The only thing it is missing is:

    it should repeat occasionally "I am looking for Sarah Connor". "

    Typical "modern" dressage horse... all knee and hock action but no overtrack, hmph! (Captivating suspension in that trot though, and I expect he'd score well for Obedience and Submission).

    Not in love with the long back and it looks like he may have stifle issues.

    It's so cute! I actually felt sorry for it when it fell down. Nice recovery though. Love the hind 'leg' action on the trot at the end.

    Will need a fake tail. Braiding shouldn't be a problem.

    Too cute! The little trot at the end was fantastic - quite light on his feet for such a heavy build.

    Bad form over fences. That hanging leg is liable to catch a rail and result in a rotational fall.

    OTOH, the piaffe half-pirouette at 2:07 was machine-like in its precision.

    I'd want a roll over bar.
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    Scale shouldn't be much of an issue either. A really big one might be popular with monster truck fans. Perhaps they can have a giant dressage ring full of old cars to crush.

    Little short in the rein for my tastes, and his extension appears to be lacking.
    But on the positive side he won't need mucking out and we could save on bedding. He follows willingly enough and the halt is square.

    Put a lot of hair on it and you've got a Thelwell.
