Possible buy opinions

So I am kind of obsessed with watching the videos of this gelding. I really like him and am interested in what you think of him. I would use him for some low level dressage and jumping. He is a 9 year old 17 hand tb. I noticed that he knocks some poles in one of the vids, but that video was a year ago.

have him Vetted. I dont think it is him, I think it is rider fault. I would have someone else who is experienced try him and see if he moves smoother, at one point it looked like he stumbled was limping on both front, but the rider sat forward even when just at a canter, so again, looks like rider faults. Get him vetted, or ask to speak to the Vet that currently sees him.

I just watched the beginning of the video.. another horse heavy on the forehand who has been trained front to back. Over the bit not on the bit..

Seems to lack scope cross country. Lacks scope ibn stadium. Seems to have trouble getting round over a fence and seems to drop hsi back end over fences. Rider? Horse? Training? All three? I suspect the first two and the third only because the horse is hard to get working off his hind quarters due to his build.

can't help but seeing issues with his hind end during stadium. i may be wrong and is due to rider error but over some of the fences he seemed to have a hard time really getting his hind end to snap up. i've been winning and showing in eventing and jumpers for 13 years, but i didn't have enough time to watch the video more than twice, he seemed fine in the rest of the video just over a few fences at the end seemed to drag that left hind a little over the fence, could be nothing but want to be safe than sorry haha:) and as long as you are looking to just do some low level stuff with him other than what i said he looks great. and as for what the person before me said, yes he's on his forehand the whole time but his natural gait seems very workable, with training nothing you cannot fix:)

Bumping this up. The dream horse linked video is the recent one, the YouTube video is from a year ago if that helps at all.
