    she does very well on 3 rounds, & on the 4th, has a minor fault, but knocks no rails down in any round.
    Her trot is gorgeous - light, collected, springy. Moves like a dream.

    I don't know her breeding - but to my eye, she looks kinda svelte & sylph-like for a warmblood. They're usually pretty sturdy looking, with heftier bone. Don'cha think so?

    I know what you mean, they are normally more middleweight. But depends on her age and they are breeding everything lighter these days so it seems.

    Lovely mare, I would think this is a grading and / or sale event where they evaluate young horses for future disaplines ...and yes she is a warm blood, they are not all heavy in bone it will depend on her breeding and where she is from .

    The reason they do this is to show a horses natural ability unhindered by a rider, it’s a way to see if they have a good jump or not

    I was aware that they do this when people view horses for potential buy but didn't know it was a thing competition wise. It is nice to see horses jump without a rider :)
