waiting on vetting! Please excuse the awful distances and abrupt half halts, he was WAY more sensitive than I'm used to. I never realized how much I vocally praise the green horses, its a bit embarrassing lol, just mute
Opinions? Thoughts? He cracks his back over the fences but wasn't super tight with his knees with me. She buried him more over the fences when she rode him and he snapped his knees up. Of course I have no video of that.
He's at an event barn, they're marketing him as a hunter prospect but I think he may be better suited for the jumpers (with his scope & ubber-responsiveness). I definitely needed a little shorter rein but I was trying to hunter him around.
I don't think he's short strided, he's just never been allowed to open up, the lady riding him put in the add and found the deep spot every jump so that's just how he's tuned to go right now.
He's an OTTB and his JC name was Dez (the simplest JC name I've ever heard). He's 8, he's not really green, just no show miles. He's actually alittle over schooled for my taste on the flat, definitely not super ammy friendly but I think its just how he's been ridden. Rather over-schooled than under
