What are you wanting him for?

I'm not a huge fan of his back end, looks like he is all front and lacks an engine, but it could just be that one pic that looks odd. If he ticks all your boxes and he is close, go see him, if he is a little way away, then get a video then decide.

He does look to be full up on the height, but only 1250 pounds? I wonder, not that it matters at all, he looks to be a good weight.

Thank you!

He is a big strong and honest guy overall I quite like him

BUT

He is never on this planet going to be a western pleasure horse, I love his trot, but it isn't a WP trot that's for sure.

He also doesn't look that well schooled to me, he falls through his canter transitions, and overall looks quite strung out with his flat work, LOL he makes me want to ride him and see if that can be fixed though.

Cross country he is all over the place, looks like he gets strong, very wobbly, but very honest when he gets to the fence.

So I would go ride him and see, if I had a good trainer I would buy him and work with him, not sure how fair the price is, I know that ID's make good money, but is that enough.

Yea, he's not a WP horse...not bred, built or trained for it. He's an English horse and needs to stay in that niche....just needs more training and finishing. Go check him out!

He doesn't move very fluidly, he kind of moves like a heavy draft at the canter. He seems to need a lot of adjustments with the reins. He drifted a lot on that XC course.

I would pass, but if you like him go check him out!

I agree he couldn't be a WP horse, if your looking for that go with an Arab or QH.
I am not a fan of his back end either.
Good luck
