Ask @cedrictriolet : How can you tell if a young prospect has Grand Prix/Top Level Show Jumping potential or is more suitable for the Amateur classes?

Hi Catherine,

Lot of factors but the most easy to spot are : the parents of the horse (full blood line ), the technic on free jump and the heart, willingness and temperament of the horse, but sometimes a horse who look great and with a bright future, can lake one of those qualities on the way and not be that good, and one that didn't have all the qualities or the blood line can become fantastic, there is no sure thing but those mentioned above are what we look for to have more chance to have a grand prix horse.
