it could be part of him just not being used to riding in an arena, with other horses. liike I said, . . I dunno.
I try to be positive in my outlook on online presentations of horses, and what I wrote was just an impression. there was just something about his way of going that rang a bell in my memory of another horse . But, trying him out will be the real litmus test on whether or not he "feels" good. '
He has many good points to his conformation, and the horse I mentioned , when I spoke of one he reminded me of , was a lovely fellow. he was a bit "trippy" on the trails, but if you got him willing to work, his gaits were good, and I actually got some good scores riding him in dressage. So, who knows?
