What breed of horse might this pinto be?

I am considering selling my horse, but I don't know what I should list for his breed. Thoughts or guesses?

More picts of Princeton

He needs a saddle with an extra wide tree, full QH bars to fit. He is about 15.3H. His hooves have always been very large and flat.

I would just list him as "Pinto" since you don't have any proof of what his breeds are. He is beautiful, btw!!!! Conceivably you could actually get him reg'd through the pinto horse association as well...since you don't have to have lineage, just certain traits, which he certainly fulfills. Good luck selling him

Firstly, Princeton is a beautiful boy and has very good movement in the roundpen. With his being decidedly uphill with those high withers I doubt he would have any Quarter Horse blood unless he has some age on him. Your description of his hooves being big and flat is indiction of maybe some Thoroughbred or more possibly some Draft breed blood.

Looks like he may be part saddlebred, to me

He does look part Saddlebred, that's the first thing that stuck out to me.

the first breed that came to mind was saddlebred.

He definitely has some age on him. He is between 20 and 25. He used to have two speeds to his walk. One was an average walk, and the other was very prancy-ish and somewhat high stepping.
