Looking at this TB tomorrow

Sooo I've posted a thread the other day about my first horse. I've been riding for about 9 years and am ready to purchase my first horse! I'm only going to be doing some light riding with him, w/t/c, no jumping or trail riding. I was looking at horses a little under his price range just because I'm not looking for anything fancy, but I found him and really like him. He's 15 minutes from where I work so I figured what the hey, I'm going to go look at him tomorrow after work. I just got off the phone with his owner and he seemed like a good match so far.
Now, I realize these aren't conformation shots, so bear with me. I'm just wondering what you guys think of the one photo, description, and his pedigree.
After I meet him tomorrow, I'll probably wait about a week and bring my trainer out. If I like him and she does too, I'll go out again and ride another time(3 times all together) then after that do a PPE.

Its hard to do a conformation reply with this photo, but I will work with what I got:)
So from what I see this horse looks reeaaallly small, like pony sized. But it could just be the structure of the woman.
He has nice legs, a little on the skinny size, but pretty good
His neck is decent, on the short side though.
But besides that I would have to have a proper confo. Shot to get a better look at him:) hope he works out!

Yeah, he's only 15.1 hh. I'm going to hop on tomorrow and see if I like his movement. I'm too excited now! Only problem is his name is the same as my dogs, this will get confusing.

If you don't like his name, you could always rename him. He looks like a nice horse, maybe a little bit of a short neck, but could be the way the photo is. Hope you have fun riding him!

Lot of TB's for sale around Va at good prices.
Horse is a big decision, go out and ride at least two other horses before you make a final decision.

I'm not necessarily set on a TB, I could care less the breed as long as they have what I'm looking for!

Good advice, though. I have a couple others saved on my favorites I plan to look at; he's just so close I figured I'd start with him tomorrow because I'm already out that way. :)

The only thing I can really say about that photo is that he looks like a Quarter Horse lol
Stocky little fellow with a decent neck set, plenty of depth through the girth and a nice length to his back.
Hindquarters don't look that appealing in that picture, but again, you cannot really tell much so I wont say anything else lol

I didn't ride him, but watched him work some in the round pen and spent some time on the ground with him. He's cutecutecute! I'm going to be looking at a couple more horses, but hopefully going back next weekend to ride him.

This is him after getting all sweaty...

Him giving my boyfriend a "what do you want" look lol

Like his size and his larger roomy hocks and knees and what looks like good care.

HATE that purple halter. LOL

I can't really comment on his conformation too much - he looks like he could do just fine for light riding like you've mentioned, but I can't say much beyond that. I just have to say, I laughed out loud at that first picture. Just the perspective and height of the fence, he looks 4 ft tall! The others, he looks normal sized, just that first one made me do a double take.
Elana, xlionesss and Get up and go like this.
