Yes i know. He is from mexico so he is not very people friendly and doesn't like men. Before i got him a older lady had him and really didn't ride him. So he did well.

Well that explains alot.Sounds like your needing to starting off fresh with this horse,which explains his looking like a green horse despite his age.Just because he more mature doesn't mean he is not able to learn just as well.A horse like him that has some trust issues & not been rode alot,I think if you can make that bond & trust with him you can learn alot together. He should make a great riding partner for you.

The pictures are really hard to go by, you need some better pictures. There is a thread somewhere on the forum about taking conformation shots.

also, that tie-down is way to loose to have any affect, it needs to be a little tighter. You can make a loop out of baling twine, string, or wire , and tie it to that middle ring of the breast collar and run your tie-down through it.
