    He's still really strung out, all on his forehand and looks kind of hard to hold together. Pretty boy though! I'd knock $250 off just because they misspelled QUIET, that's a pet peeve of mine. He's QUITE what? GRRRRR, LOL!
    And another $250 for the chauvinistic add.

    HAAAH! I had to go back and look at the ad again, I missed that the first time.

    That is more in line I know some people have said he should be even less,but I guess it depends on horse prices in your area, I know he would probably go around here for that.

    I like him, the rider isn't doing anything to make him really drive up into the bridle, would love to see some one ride him that could really make him work!

    He's very pretty, and he looks willing. I don't think it would be too hard to teach him to collect since he's only five, and he doesn't look as if he's fighting the rider.

    He seems to be nice. Whats he look like without the tack?
    He seems nice for just 5, and the rider was not helping him and he was not set up for the jump. If you like him make an offer.

    He certainly does! Much better than some of the five and six year olds I've been around. I called before, no answer, so I'm going to try and call again today or tomorrow. I want to see if I can do a lease with him first, since he would be the first horse I've actually OWNED (I've leased for years).

    I'm going to ask the owners to send some pictures of him without tack, too, since I have only seen him tacked up.

    If they're looking to "downsize quickly," my guess is they're not going to be too excited about a leasing option. But it never hurts to ask...

    He is very green and very on his forehand. He needs a LOT more foundation work. Notice his up transition from trot to canter is nice but his down transitions are rough and include head shaking.. he is unbalanced and that much on his forehand. He is just stepping over those jumps and is not ready for jumping at all. Just because he will and can does not mean he has enough training and should....

    He is built down hill and has a slightly long back (look at the space behind the saddle) but seems to have a decently open shoulder. He will probably jump fairly flat and be a nice AQHA hunter or equitation horse.

    He is really very pretty but needs a lot more training and foundation and it will take longer to lay it due to his down hill build (putting him on the forehand) and his longish back.

    He is a very nice horse.. really. I am pointing out his faults so you know what you are in for.. probably a good year of foundation and training him to get his weight off his forehand before more jumping. Price seems a bit high considering this market.

    Thank you very much for the critique! I am fairly certain of my ability to work with him with his build and foundation work, I helped train a 6 year old green gelding with the WORST downhill build I'd ever seen. He was frightening at times -shudder- After that they tried to sell me him . . . Nope!

    I don't even know if this is going to work since the owner isn't answering! I've called SIX times, on two separate numbers, in the past two days. UGH. I'm a little aggravated at that.

    If I spot a horse at the Camelot Horse Weekly tomorrow, I might just jump on getting it. Although there is one old man I keep looking at that's still available, lol!
