I know how to train, I have had mentorship with that buckskin I had, he taught me everything he knows. I have ridden well trained horses from western pleasure to dressage. I don't have a problem with the training part, it is getting a horse that is built the way I need it. I have never had anyone show me what to look for. My parents knew nothing about horses when they bought me the arab mare (who they still have. Cranky old bitch) The only other horses I have had until this colt were given to me. I got a black saddlebred/arab mare from my grandparents, and then the buckskin quarter horse kinda got passed to me after my dad got him for doing my neighbor's hardwood floors. The only things I really know about conformation is that a shorter back is better for speed. Other than that...I'm pretty clueless. I have been reading the posts in this forum like crazy trying to pick some things up, it is hard! Lol I do see some things you guys point out. Like with the bald faced guy, I saw something didn't look right with his legs, but I didn't know what even after everyone explained it. It will take some time to learn I guess

Learn before you buy!!!
I suggest you find Dr. Deb Bennett's books on Conformation analysis. Take a look here:
Equine Studies Institute Homepage

Conformation is physics. The laws of physics do not lie to you! If you can get the physics going and the right horse with the right 'tude, you will have a match. It is not easy!!!

The horse that will do high end dressage will have different physics requirements than a horse doing barrels. Some of it will cross over (short back, proper shoulder and so forth) but some things will be less or more important depending on the discipline.

I like the first horse you posted OP.....but then again, it could be because he reminds me of my horse quite a far as his feet, and legs go....might not hurt to see what a vet and a farrier think about it, and about future use.

Good Luck!
