    pretty sure you need to post a video of her moving to post anything about her as far as gait, flaws, ect.

    They are pretty but I think every horse is. lol
    But going by looks and such I like the first better.

    What do you WANT to use them for? Why are the using a stud chain on them? These are questions I would ask myself before deciding on either.

    She's a bit short in the neck and coarse in the head. I'm also wary of the chain over her nose, thats usually a sign of a high-strung or hard to handle horse. In my opinion, unless it's a stallion or terribly difficult, you don't need a chain! [​IMG]

    She looks fine for whatever you want to do with her. It all depends on her-I have a gelding that HATES jumping, while his half brother LOVES it! I think she's rather cute myself.

    They use stud chains on all their horses, i want to use them for eventing and gaming.

    For an eventer/jumper, I would go with the first one. The second is too upright for me, and doesn't look like she'll have the scope to jump well.

    I expect the first to be a better mover as well, just based on how she's built.

    How old are they? Two year olds?

    I too would be concerned about the use of chains. If a horse is trained properly, you shouldn't need the chains to inflict pain.
