    Default What happened to Crown Point???

    I was just wondering what ever happened with Scott Stewart's horse Crown Point? Beautiful mover but I never saw much of him "out and about" jumping

    Last I heard he was doing the Children's hunters somewhere.
    Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

    He was sold recently, not sure to who but I believe as an A/A horse

    Which is why the average Jane trying to do OK in the 3' classes has no shot.

    Just sayin'

    I don't know what average Jane you're talking about, but the ones I know are showing at local rated shows including a few A shows and doing just fine in the 3ft (and certainly not competing against the likes of that horse!)

    As lovely as that horse is, his pilot still has to find the jumps!

    I'm pretty sure there are very few "average" Janes competing on the A circuit at all. True average Janes probably don't even own horses (median household income = $51k-ish.) Does make me wonder what median or avg household income of horse owners is, though.

    Search the USEF results under Crownpoint, all one word. It's got a pretty long record in the Children's and Adults, as well as a few 3'3 pro divisions. I saw a for sale/lease video not too long ago on Facebook, the horse is lovely.

    This....and sometimes those gorgeous horses that look easy with a pro on board are NOT so easy once an ammie climbs on board......

    OMG! That horse is adorable! I hadn't seen him (?) go before. Just so happy and floaty-looking.

    Used to be that you didn't run in to that "quality" until you got to the 3'6's. I did A show 3' stuff on nice lesson horses back in the day, and pinned. Today, those types of horses simply start too far behind the Crownpoints (and his like) on "quality" to have a shot. I could find 8 perfect fences but the odds are that with the number of very high class horses in the 3' that many of the riders will also find 8 nice fences.
    Of course, if I could afford a horse, like that I would probably have one.

    Love him. I'd feel like a million bucks riding that trot!

    Does anyone have links to videos of he and Scott? I remember one showing his trot; he is a freakishly cute mover.

    ^ The video I remember seeing from years ago only showed the trot, IIRC. Which was a little funny, since people always posted it as an example of a fantastic mover, even though it only included one of the three gaits.

    The video from 2012 certainly showed he turned out to be a cute horse, though.

    Yup that was the one I was thinking of! It was posted here actually. I can't find it anymore.

    I think it just popped up here not too long ago. Maybe do a search for threads on great movers?
