Well, let me start by saying he's gorgeous! And you're very lucky to have stumbled upon a Trakhener without breaking the bank hehe.
I've only had a couple of Trak experiences but I'll share anyway.
I've ridden one Trak mare, named Bella, and she was EXTREMELY athletic. Built beautifully too, but she was a hothead, and stubborn. A lot of the WB breeds you have to do things a little differently, because they have bulk and they know it. They need an equal partnership. Bella was definitely an interesting ride but BOY could she jump!
There's also a Trak mare up the road from me...imported from Germany, nine years old and never ridden, siiiigh. What a waste. Her name's Reggie and I loooove her. She's got an athletic build and beautiful movement but she's very hot also! That's part of why they haven't trained her. (And they're selling her for 18k lol)
That's probably not helpful but basically if you can figure Jarred out you'll find yourself with a very smart, very athletic boy that could do tons for you!
