Critic needed!

5 y old unreg. Paint.4 month under training(he was started there and trained). Want to use him for English riding(Basic Dressage),trail, and small jumps.
What you think of him?
The asking price is 2500 and the owner already has agreed to take 10% much would you pay for him?
If I make an offer of $1850 do you think they would go for it ? The Gelding is on consingment.
I`m going to see him tommorrow for a second time and will make my decision excited!
He did not had his hovves trimmed in 8 weeks and they look in person longer then on the pic and a little flat.
All input is appreciated!

IMO he is substantially overpriced...

Agree on the price. I do like the look of him, though. I'm not great at the technicals of conformation, though. Maybe looks like he stands with his feet close together in front? Not sure, though. Just looked a bit off to me. He has a nice angle on the shoulder but could use a little more weight, I think.

I think he has pretty good conformation. He looks like he has a lot of thoroughnred in him. He is well muscled and seems to have no glaring faults that I can see in any way. the neck is muscled rather oddly, but could be due to the rider's way of riding him. hard to say. he is on the lean side and might be a hard keeper. But, for English riding I think he is worth the money.
