Congratulations! How excited.

I love the first picture of him. And then I scrolled down. That's not the same horse. LoL Holy cresty neck! LoL I've never used one but maybe a neck swear would be a good investment? And a muzzle? HeHeHe.

For real though, he's super cute. Looks like a very nice horse. And I agree, he looks much bigger then 14.2. HeHe, you make him look 16 hands!

We measured him today and he is 14.2 1/2 hands. Barely a horse! I am glad I fit him being as small as I am. Thanks everyone, I am super excited!

He's very well balanced & doesn't look "small". Love his first picture-gives you a goal to shoot for. Still, better than having to recondition a horse that hasn't had enough groceries. At least you can start conditioning right away.

He's lovely and definitely an event prospect. He looks very sensible. You need to work on slowing the tempo of his trot. He is moving so quickly, he is going quite flatly. Slowing down the tempo will allow him to use his shoulder better and, hopefully, develop a little more loft in his steps.

I like this guy and you look very good together. Keep us updated.

Congratulations! I think you found a good mount. He's probably available bc most people want 8 inches taller than he is. I like his frame. I like his legs, too, straight and mirror images of each other, good bend in the hocks and balanced. I like his demeanor. He looks honest.
Also, GLAD to see that he's an easy keeper. SOOO many eventing horses have that TB skinny gene.
It's ALWAYS good to start with horse that is easy to handle. I had a 13.2 huge barrelled pony, "Toma", (1969-2004, RIP) that EVERYBODY rode and enjoyed. My 15'3hh QH "Ro Go Bar", (1982-2009, RIP) couldn't jump well--built uphill--but he was my babysitter. I'll bet you trail ride this guy all over the places and over lots of jumps, too, and he becomes "Mr. Reliable."

Thanks! I will work on his trot, I agree. I was told to look for a good walk and a good canter, and that you can kind of fix a trot. I have had him for a week now and he is a lovely boy! I think he will be Mr. Reliable with some more miles and getting back into the working frame of mind. He has a huge fear of the barn pig right now but luckily there is another arena away from everything that he does great in where we can get some work done. I posted on the Training board for advice on that! So far I think he is going to be great and ready to go come Spring time.
