critique my horse please

Hi im wanting critiques on my horses conformation and also like to know what you think he would sell for (i don't want to sell him im just curious what people think).
Info on him:
He's 15.2 hh, 12 year old Qh/morgan gelding. He rides well at w/t/c he lopes slow and pretty I always get compliments. I use him for pleasure and trail, we do alot of arena work. He can be stubborn at times so he wouldnt b good for child or begginer right now cause he needs to know your serious about what you ask him. He will go out alone or with a group leading or following. HE rides western or english and he will go bareback.
And I have some pics for you to critique. So let me know what you think and what you think hed be worth. And if you have questions let me know.confo7.jpg

Average horse, no major faults that I can see, sounds like he's trained for trails. In my area, he would sell for @ $2000 if he passed a vet check for soundness.

I'm not great at critique, but it looks like his right rear leg turns out quite a bit. Maybe the way he's standing? It appears that way in all of the pictures though. But I wouldnt call it cow hocked as it looks like the left rear is straight.

Hmm, like ware said, he's a pretty average grade horse. His back is a bit longer than I like to see and there is something wonky with his tailset that gives his rump a strange appearance. Slightly cowhocked and appears a bit light boned. Given his training level and the fact that he's not beginner/kid friendly, he might get to $800 here....maybe.

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/

Sorry, I should clarify where I am, BC Canada. The BC stands for bring cash, only $800 horses here are untrained or meat. Any sound decent looking riding horses, like the one you have, is about $2000. I have been looking at showring quality trained horses from all of NA, those prices are same between here & in the US.

The picture fromyhe back isn't the best he wasn't standing square which is why I think it looks weird cause he was relaxed. I was in a hurry so some of them arnt great. I should specify about the kid beginer thing I would leadline him with any kid and let any beginer on him in an arena or roundpen just not out on the trails cause he does occasionaly want to get his way and a kid or beginer wouldn't know what to do but never buck rear or anything.

Thankyou I'd have to agree but I'm biased
