I'm in search of a show jumper or eventer that would be suitable for a rider who is new to competing. She's quite a skilled rider but she's just getting her feet wet in competing and so I'm hoping to find a mount that will really take her through quite a few levels and help her build her skills.
My criteria are:
Open to Warmbloods/Grades/Sporthorses/Thoroughbreds
Any colour except grey (she owns a grey sabino Arabian)
Mare or gelding (or stallion who can be gelded immediately or after a certain amount of time/breeding)
Show jumper or eventer or both
I am willing to pay for a pedigreed horse or a foundation, but I would prefer if they came with a bit of a blurb about their personality because a huge aspect of this character is going to be roleplaying
Thanks for reading this! Please PM me here or post here if you have anything or any questions about what I would consider, I'm still waiting for my Slack invite!

Hi! I recently noticed that racking horse has ridiculously low endurance level cap. I don't agree, here is why.
On equus racking horse is cross of following
Saddlebred - has level 7 max in endurance
TWH - has level 7 cap
Spotted saddle horse (which literally can be draft gaited cross) - level 8
standardbred - 4
missouri fox trotter - 9!!
rocky moutain horse - 8
kentucky moutain horse - 8
national show horse - % (which is good thing)
Average is ~ 7.
My idea is to maybe make endurance level % based (if stated of course), it would make the whole thing more realistic.
So here's a quick summary of my queries regarding a reclaims system moving forward into 3.0. It's a two pronged question so I'm separating it:
A ) When it comes to the move between 2.5 and 3.0, will there be an opportunity to reclaim horses from members not continuing on the new system like there was between 2.0 and 2.5?
A lot of horses could be potentially lost in this move, and given all horses (from my understanding) will need reregistering, is there no way for simple reclaims to be instated here to help reduce loss of stock for breeders? Horses not moving from 2.5 to 3.0 because of inactive members would literally just disappear at this point and not be registered otherwise.
B ) I'd love to hear more about how leases work in 3.0. I appreciate the need for a safer, more streamlined system for staff and members with regards to reclaiming horses from inactive members, but I do have a few queries, especially in regards to concerns about:
Official ownership / control over the horse: is this like a 'soft buy' option, who retains actual ownership of the horse
If there isn't an immediate payment for the horse, is it an ongoing fee? Is that how all horse sales will work? (Potentially good and bad, in that it removes the pressure of immediate outlay on say new members, but also takes a lot of the fun out of things like auctions. Also could be abused by owners increasing lease fees.)
Selling said horse: who could do it, who gets the profits?
Potential abuses of the system (eg where an owner takes horses off a leaser because they had an argument, but the leaser had kept them active and paid for the horse)
A lease system sounds like a lot of the power would be in the breeder/owner's hands, which seems unbalanced. At the moment, all of the power is in the buyer's hands, but a 90/10 split I think is all most breeders are looking for (ie. only have the right to return a horse from someone who is no longer on the site).
