- 8 year old, 16.2hh bay Dutch WB gelding, proven track record in dressage, potential to go far
As I love Dutch Warmbloods, I would've chosen the eventer, but I wouldn't go for a pure TB

LOL - you have to make a compromise. I went for the allrounder and then felt guilty because I am a big dales fan. Decisions decisions!

I wouldnt have a mare, so the schoolmaster would better suit me. Though I'd prefer a happy hacker.
Can I have the shettie too??

The school master is a happy hacker - he'll turn his hand to anything, just isn't as young or as flashy as the dapple grey mare! No - you can only afford one horse or pony

yeah, the schoolmaster.

But what if there's more than one rider per household? surely we're allowed two then??

Unless there was a 13.2hh schoolmaster then we could share and wouldnt need two

Rather little youger, Love dutch WB, Geldings are more pratical and with good dressage he'll no doubt jump min 1.20 tracks. *Seeing as his belly isn't much lower so wouldn't take much...*


7 year old, 16.2hh Hanovarian mare, many wins showjumping, showing some potential in dressage


Nice age, Really like hanovarians, temperment isn't quite as good in my experience, Must have good basic flat work for sjing and potential in dressage. Miss the relationship of mares! I picked this one...

I'd be leaning towards the shetland -- not for the ribbons or whatever; just because he/she can be successfully ridden by a four year old. (Am thinking about maybe getting a little kid's pony for when my grandchildren visit)

Young, decent height, Lovely breed, gelding which i think has better temprement than a mare, good potential - jumping


and this one sounds nice

It really depends on what you want a horse for, hacking? jumping? dressage?
