    May look at this TB

    I don't know TBs well enough to know good or bad conformation confidently. I'm looking at this horse for my husband. My question is if he is worth going to see. This horse will likely be a pleasure horse most of the time, but may end up used for reenactments/jousting as well. For jousting, conformation is fairly important.

    His temperament is rated at a 6, which means he's not going to be very laid back. Probably won't do well at just being a pleasure mount.

    I could be wrong, but he sure as heck doesn't look to be anywhere close to 17.2 h. Methinks someone's fudging his height just a tad.

    He's a coming 5 y/o and has done exactly nothing except race 3 times, and they want $3,500 for him? I think someone's dreaming!

    If you want an ex-racer who needs to be retrained, you can get one for a LOT less than $3,500, who has a nice, calm disposition. I'd pass.

    Doesn't look like the typical full-blooded TB; looks pretty stocky. Decent shoulder, clean legs, and average heart girth. I'd like to see more pictures, particularly with the neck not so arched, but he looks like a nice solid horse.

    ETA: Saw the price....definitely not worth it. You're close to my area; you can find many unproven OTTBs for pennies around here.

    He is beautiful, but for reenactments, etc, I personally would be looking for something that may be a bit calmer. It also does not say what, if any, training he has had except for racing. Unless, of course you are reenacting Paul Reveres ride! Lol

    He sure is a looker tho!

    Oh, he's pretty all right, but not $3,500 worth of pretty!

    I third. Conformation of this horse is very good. But if the temperament is too hot, then would it work for you?
