Just so you know Sophie, the video is 4 seconds long of them free lunging him over jumps where he gives a nice little buck at the end

He's very forwards though, I'd ask for a video of him on the flat.

He looks a bit over at the knee and like Sky said, his neck doesn't look like it goes with the rest of him. He also has quite small feet and a weak hind end.

If you're selling a horse, I don't understand the point of posting a four second video of your horse free-jumping. Why??

lots of neck, not a lot of butt. :/

Pretty face and color imo but that certainly isn't reason to buy a horse. :P

On my cell, so didn't look at the video... Stifle is a tad too high for my liking. But the angle of the picture isn't great, so can't comment on his hindquarters, which could easily compensate. Leg might be a little on the straight side, but again, picture is no good for second half of the body. Shoulder isn't my favourite either.

The angle of the photo is why he looks like he has a long neck.

I'm not the best for picking apart conformation...but I just wanted to say he has a very cute face! But, as Crimson said, a cute head isn't a reason to buy a horse. He does look like he may have weak-ish hindquarters, but I think the picture angles are a bit strange.
