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."
