It's perspective-14.3 isn't really "itty bitty", if the rider is 5'. Different if the rider is 6' & over. Being a mustang, he might be very good at endurance.

14.3 and itty-bitty? That's funny. From the photo I thought he looked quite long-legged and was probably tall. Or maybe my eyes are just going.
At 4 he will still grow and fill out. You can condition and do limited distance. He's still a youngster. But try and see how he does.

When I say itty bitty, I'm just used to my other horse who is 14.3, but stocky, he's my ex barrel horse. Bleu is a lot more narrow, and stream lined. And I know he's going to get bigger, he already has grown a bunch in the seven months I've had him.

I had a couple of friends who got mustangs from the Eastern Oregon range area. It was amazing how much they grew and changed with feed and riding. One went on to become a police horse.
Anyway, good luck to you and your young guy if you decide this is something for you both. Endurance is an exciting sport.

I have ridden mustangs all my life and from my experience most tend to have pretty good natural endurance. Good luck with this handsome guy!:)

This is the other horse I'm riding while I work with Bleu. He is a mustang/paint gelding, nine years old. I wanted to see what yall had to say about his conformation. He is around 15.3 hands? Maybe. I've never measured him.
