To me he looks weak behind. I like him and I think his price is good, but not sure he's the right one if you are looking to be real competitve. I like his movement and jump, but his markings would throw off the real traditional hunter judges. Are you going to be showing local or rated?

To me his canter looks choppy. Hunters need to be long and low. I also think his head carriage is too high. They like it to be lower with a level neck. I think that his biggest drawback is his colour. Don't attack me, I ride and show english and have struggled with being an adult pony rider, so I know where-of I speak. Being pinto will count loud against him in the hunter ring. He would need to be beyond perfect before judges would see anything but white where it shouldn't be. If you and your daughter are up for challenging the status quo, go for it, otherwise try for something a little more tradional. He could do well as a jumer where colour doesn't matter quite so much, 'cause, I agree, he has a lovely jump.

Is your 12 year old strong enough to handle a spunky pony? He looks like he is quite energetic and maybe a bit headstrong? Plus, he looks really fast going through those fences. I thought hunters were supposed to be slow and collected? (I'm not a jumper so I don't know for sure) But he looks like he could win a speed jumping round.

I think he is cute though. He's got a nice trot. Doesn't look choppy. His canter looks okay, not as sweepy as his trot but definitely not the worst that I've seen. To me, it looks like he has a nice jump. But like I said, I'm not a jumper.
