    He wore a tie down when I rode him. Owner said they use it because he travels with his head up in the air... Need I say more?

    I flexed him left and right and he was willing but at the trot he is very stiff. He doesn't really stop well, won't back, and as soon as you ask for vertical flexion he throws his head in the air and avoids it. I work with a trainer and take lessons. I've worked on problem horses in the past and he isn't my first horse. After riding him I'm confident with restarting him he will be fine and is something I can handle.

    On the plus side he backs great from the ground using the bit.

    They also never had his teeth checked out, so part of his training issues could be teeth and having possible wolf teeth yet?

    I'm hoping he's a diamond in the ruff!

    I really like the sires side of his lines- His dams is nice too but more speed lines.

    Lol definitely a training overhaul- im glad someone like you will be getting him.. I have the petrol if you buy him with the tie down ill let you borrow some to burn it!

    That's like how my dhs gelding was too- he is definitely a diamond just needed some polishing.. sounds like your guys got nice ground manners- id say a lot to do with him not wanting to back under saddle is that he just never been asked much.

    horses need their teeth done depending on their diet- I've got a 17 year old mare that has good teeth and never been floated- the woolf teeth are removed when the bit is tinging off them and causing pain- some horses don't have them others do.. he can have his wolf teeth if he's grown them they show up early on.

    I was the same, only my poison was blindingly-white polos. Perfectly wrapped. Every ride.

    I said it because I didn't like the way his legs looked in the confo shot not because of the boots but glad I could give you a reason to show off your hot pink boots. Lol

    On the training end, it sounds like this gelding is exactly where mine was when I bought it- needs work, but nothing dangerous or crazy. I might have paid more than my guy was 'worth' as well, but there a lot to be said for a temperament you like in a pleasure horse. It's easy to work on training with a horse that wants to please. I love his ears. If you get him, please share more pictures and progress!

    I thought it looked swollen too, Churumbeque, and as I was reading about the training issues was wondering if maybe they were pain issues instead.
