yeah the last picture isn't the best which is why i didn't originally post it, however, it is the only one i have of him in daylight. :(

i won't have the opportunity to ride him until/unless i take him on. it's a rather interesting situation and i don't really want to say more until it's more of a done deal. my understanding is that he has had training however it is safest to say that he is green broke. personally, i think he's a fantastic looking horse and sounds like he has a good brain with some spunk and that's right up my alley.

If you can't ride him yet are you able to get some video of him either being ridden or just trotting on the lead, just to see what his movement is like? He's very handsome :)

Keep us updated!

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

I think his inborn conformation is particularly good. He has a good shoulder, nice legs with good bone and overall good balance. The only thing maybe not so good is that his croup is short and a bit steep (odd for an Arab) and the point of hip is rather far back from where I think his sacoilliac joint is. Also, he has the dip in front of the withers that can develop from being ridden all scruched back into his neck, breaking at the 3rs vertebrae. Looks "pretty" but incorrectly build the neck .

interesting tiny! thanks for the feedback. from what i understand, he was broke to ride as a three year old and then turned out in a pasture for 7 years before being put back under saddle for trail rides basically. the man who sold him to the lady who has him now didn't want a horse "with a head so high". i wonder if that might attribute to the "scrunched" observation you made?
