Not very good at this/don't really know what I know so take it with a grain of salt lol.
I would stick with English stuff with him, though I am sure he could do both. He has nice movement but low and sweeping rather than flashy. Don't hesitate to do dressage but I think that would aim him more towards HUS type stuff. Reining/cutting would mean a horse that can really get under himself and move/turn quickly. (I believe I have heard this is sometimes a good match) I wonder how he would do jumping? He could sit down and turn while having more of a jumping confo than a cutter would. He's still a baby give him time to grow (and change!) before you make up your mind, atm he is lanky and awkward (and cute). I think his upright headset makes him look more the part than his confo necessarily does at this point in time. If you want a very good critique I would hunt up the member Elana and ask her, she is excellent at it and will probably need to correct me lol.

Some times you can see into the heart of the horse through his eyes. You can see greatness there. Something that you don't see in another horse. This is how I choose my horses. They speak to me in the way they look and the way they move and that inner spark. I have a friend who only chooses the horse with a perfect conformation and most end up lame. I know someone that shows here and they butte the horse up before a show and that horse is lame as lame can be. Yet she wins first place almost every time. So for those of you that have people telling you your horse is less than perfect don't worry because beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Thank you for everyone that took their time to critique my baby and look forward to posting a pic later so you can do it again in the future.

There are NO PERFECT HORSES.
Something everyone should remember.

If you BREED, then you have a huge responsibility to form and function. If you are just looking for a critique of a horse then that is what you will get.

If you want a perfect horse, then go buy a painting....

I think most of us know our horses are not perfect or even close to perfect and are looking for a critique for that reason. Just wanting to know where their weakness may lie and what the horse may or may not be good at performance wise. Plus with a young horse there are some that can study them and know somewhat how they will turn out. Where some of us just look at the parents and hope for the best. That is what is so great about these forums. Genetics can be perfect on both side and you can still get a train wreck of a horse. Maybe not in conformation but perhaps in Health or temperament. I guess all we can do is our homework and strive for the best. ;) I am learning and love when someone tells me what is wrong and what is right. It helps me to know for the future. Thanks

maybe reining instead?

Caught his natural movement today and saw him do some moves like this. You can see his drag marks. Lol. Time will tell on this little guy what he is capable of. ;)
