Ugggh. I don't like his movement at all.
He looks extremely frantic over the ground, strung out and really hollow through the back. He's fighting the bit the entire time (the rider does not help one bit however, I really want to smack her (or him? Not sure haha)) and there is no impulsion whatsoever from his hind. If you seriously want to take him, I don't know if you will ever get engagement from the hind...it seems to me like you will be fighting a battle with this guy every ride. Whether it's impulsion, collection or proper acceptance of the bit and rounding, there's always going to be some ongoing fight between this horse and his rider.
Gahhh, even in Alberta (where the horse market hasn't been hit at all, unbroke yearlings are still going for $5k), I wouldn't be asking more than $1,000 for this guy. He looks like he just came off the track where his feed was laced with cocaine.
Please keep your pony, you would be silly to trade that little gem for a big problem.
