Best of Craigslist...

I'm stealing this idea from Knoxvillian and fellow eventer/blogger Leslie Wylie. Since she is both a better eventer AND blogger than I, and has a bunny named Amelia Earhart... who happens to be good luck, because "It's like having four rabbit's feet but way cuter and less dead," I don't feel bad stealing her "Best of Craigslist" idea... because where we live, you have to laugh if you can't cry.

Without any further ado... let me introduce you to someone's next Grand Prix mount. (All joking aside, this looks like a lovely horse for someone, her owner looks very proud of her and I will gladly do the dirty work if anyone is interested in her.)

"Gorgeous Belgian Warmblood Mare. Has had 90 days under saddle and driving training. This mare has Dressage movement, excellent reach and suspension. Price will go up with further training. This mare has potential to go Grand Prix or higher. Sired by Leningrad BWP"

Light to the aids...

Excellent lengthenings...

Halts square...

Well schooled in basic lateral work...

Started over fences...

Great self carriage...

Very. Tolerant.
