He looks as cow bred / cutting bred horse. Do you know his breeding (I see resemblance of Doc Olena breeding).
I agree about the over bitting and I don't care for what the rider is going with the horse which "training it".
I think he looks quite athletic. These little cutting bred horses are very smart and can be a handful if not given a job on regular basis.. (yes the compare-sent of a border collie asked to be a couch potato applies to heavily bred cutting horses). If he's mostly reining bred then he'll be probably very quiet. Overall a nice looking horse, would not pay 2K for him just because of him being very green. I'd pay that money if he were VERY broke and a filly / mare with very good breeding (registered) - that is given current market conditions

Talking Quite The Starr AQHA

As 2bigreds said, I'd keep looking at others too just in case a horse more perfect came along or in case she gets bought by someone else, but I like her a lot.

I found my forever and ever pony :) "Quite the Starr", about 14.2-14.3 and 12 years old LOTS of whoa on this guy. I've taken a few lessons on him and he was at some point a finished bridle horse, LOVELY collection and flexion. Gives beautifully to the bit. He's finished about 1 1/2 weeks of his tune up (as his owner had him in pasture for the last year) due to health problems.

He has a cutting/Ranch versatility background so I did xrays on him. Vet says he's looks very good radiographically for a horse his age and his background. He recommends putting him on Pentosan 1x a month after a 4 week load to keep his joints happy.

What do you guys think?? I looooove him. And he's so handsome...hes a huge chunk. Must get it from the Poco Bueno breeding, I've been told.

Congrats on your new buddy. Can't tell anything about his conformation from these, but he looks very sweet and sounds like a good match for you.

Ooh, he's a beauty! Congratulations!!!!

With a back that short, he should be an athletic sonofagun LOL.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Here's a picture from almost a year ago. I also got his teeth done, they were long overdue. He looks pissy in the picture probably his poor teeth.

He is very bum high, maybe a bit tied in at the knee, honestly I like him! I think he will be great, and I'm glad you found each other :)
