I like the grey better than the chestnut. The chestnut's back legs are too straight and I believe that would affect his ability to couple before a fence. He looks more QH'sy to me than TB.

I prefer the over all look, balance and bone of the chestnut, but agree that the shoulder will cause problems.

I cringe a little bit at the light bone on the grey, but if you arnt planning on high level competition and you are a lighter rider it should be alright(with a vets blessing).

I've watched numerous horses with conformation flaws do well as jumpers. The Chestnut, with a calm demeanor would likely make a nice hunter. Great neck for balance, longer than the grey and not as thick in the throatlatch. I'm a little rusty in this department but aren't hunters limited to 3'6 or 3'9, somewhere in that area?

It's difficult to say without seeing them move and jump, but overall I prefer the gray.

If you look up Trafalger you get a LOCATION in London.

OP needs to find the videos and put up a link.

Do you mean a fun horse that you want to compete with as a bonding experience, or a serious rawr-win-trophies horse? If you're looking for a fun horse to try stuff out with so you spend time together, it might change people's opinions. :P

Hunter jumpers around my area are 2'3" to 3'.

I found the videos of the gray:

intelligent. The best of any breed is the Thoroughbred horse, the best
of that breed is better than any other breed." - George Morris

For an 8 yr old TB , those videos do nothing for me...If he was cheap enough maybe, but he certainly doesn't make me say , oh yes, I like him.
