. To justdressageit, the reason he looks a little green in that video-that was his first time ever in a derby class and yes he was a little green but still got a good score and I was thrilled that he jumped around as well as he did. We gelded him because he will make a nice horse for a child or junior rider and stallions are not very marketable in that situation
The HorseForum is a great place for participants to discuss potential purchases. Generally we deal with critiquing horses in a lower income bracket, but every now and again one of these pops up. Please do not think anything of the OP asking for second opinions on a public forum :)
As to the rest of your post -
Absolutely. He's doing very well for his age :) The OP asked us to critique, and I did the best I could considering he's clearly a high caliber horse - again, everything I found was attributed to him being 5 and still relatively green.
My questions regarding his being gelded was really my only point of concern, if you could call it that, seeing as how when I googled his name, a stallion ad popped up as one of the first hits.
You're riding a lovely gelding, I hope the OP is able to come and try him out!
