    Potential buy, please give me feedback on him

    A friend of mine is selling him for a very low price, since she has 130 horses and wants to reduce the herd.. What do you think of him? My goals would be to do medium level dressage and maybe jump for fun every now and then. Looking to ride 4-5 times a week. He is 5 years old right now.

    Only things I see is his neck being a bit ewe, maybe..and his head isn't as pretty as one could be.

    I like him. A lot. Draft cross? I'd guess Clydesdale/paint, if he is. Could be wrong, though.

    You're almost on the money :) his dam is a paint and sire an Estonian Draft horse. Do you think he'd be a good first horse?

    I adore my draft cross. Wouldn't trade him for the world. I think good ones make good first horses.

    I think he's really quite nice.
    You say your goals are to do medium level dressage. He will do this no bother. Every horse, except ones with major major conformation faults, can do dressage, up to medium level at least. Every thing in dressage is based on what a horse can do naturally. I'm a firm believer that any horse can do a grand prix dressage test if given correct training and time. It might not be a good test, but all horses should be able to do it, as its what they do naturally.
    Good luck with him... He's looks safe and sane, and capable of many things.

    Nice horse. No ewe neck. A little straight behind. Shoulder is a little restricted in its conformation. He needs a GOOD farrier.

    In addition to the above I see a long back and coupling. His topline is nearly as long as his underline. This will make it harder for him to engage his hind end in collection.

    Regarding him as a first horse - hard to say. Generally first horses should be "been there, done that" types, not five year olds that are still learning themselves. However if he has a nice temperament and you are working with a trainer, he might be fine.

    Thanks everyone. I like him, but I don't have that feeling that yes, that would be the right horse for me. I went to see him and he was rather passive..I would like a more communicative and curious horse. But he is beautiful. The owner has managed to find another buyer for him, so I hope his new owner is happy :) Thank you everyone who commented!
