    Halter bred paints are not built for eventing. Honestly any "halter bred" I would stay away from... they are bred to look "pretty" not use.

    Is this question directed at me? If so, which first picture are you talking about?

    No the OP, though you could answer it maybe lol.

    The question that she answered (and I didn't understand the organizations she named) was which type of trail.

    I assume she meant more the picture of outdoors wading through the stream than the indoors "show" environment.

    Yeah, the ACTHA is about covering actual trails out in the open instead of in a "controlled" environment.

    OP, you need a horse trained, or at least ABLE to go FORWARD. Halter horses and WP horses are bred and trained NOT to go forward. They basically pick their feet up(barely) and put them right back near the same spot. You need rear end conformation that allows overstride.

    I like the first horse, the bay and the last horse, the bay with the RF stocking the best as a sportshorse. MUCH more balanced and sturdy.

    MUCH more in the right direction!

    (Can I say how ADORABLE that name is?!!! Hi Froggy!!)

    His descriptions sounds super nice and idk your style but may be just what you're looking for.

    My only hesitation would be he's still relatively young and jumping pretty high.. I would be sure to ask at what age they started jumping and how high etc. It very well could be light work and just recently raised the height, but there are also people who will have him schooling 3+ as a 3 year old type so always good to ask.
