Potential Hunter Under Saddle Mount

Rocky is a 2006 Appendix gelding. Stands 16.2 hands. These are the pictures I have of him and as soon as I get some good conformation shots I will post them! I am thinking about trading my reining mare for him. For now if you just want to give opinions of the video since I havent got any good confo pics that would be great :)

I can't get the video to show up but here is the link for it!

What are his lines?

I can't tell much from the video or the pictures, he looks very lovely though. But personally see a lot of knee action, not sure if that's just me or the video. Its kinda hard to see.

I am not sure what his lines are. He doesn't come up on allbreeds. His registered name is "Coos Brilliant Now". I asked her to send me some new pics but if she doesnt send them I'll take some when I go look at him. She says they have done really well in the show ring, she just wants to go western and get into reining.

Not a competitive AQHA HUS horse I would choose. He has a long back, which he's not using. On the forehand. Too much knee action. Breaking him of that false frame will be hard to do, and it really limits his movements.

But, it all depends on whether you're going to an open show or going to Congress.

I just plan on doing small local shows. Nothing big like congress.

Then he looks like a perfectly fine horse for that. You'll just need to work on getting him to raise that back.

Ya, I think a better rider will make a big difference in him. Right now, he's travelling hollow in the back and his hocks are trailing out behind. Get that back raised and you'll have a different way of moving. He DOES have some knee....but many times that can be corrected with the right hoof angles up front. I mean, if he's shod with too much toe, he will lift the leg higher to compensate. He'll bring his shoulder up instead of forward more, which means knee. I would not rule him out as an AQHA Nov Am HUS horse because he does have that look and presence about him.

He does have a bit of knee, and I would like to see a more broke horse. How much of it is the rider, is hard to tell, as she is a bit of a rapid poster and his feet look off.

For open or local shows, I think he would be a nice enough horse. Do you have a trainer to work with, or have experience in riding the hunt seaters that you could straighten him out and get him more broke?

The people I show for are giving me lessons in exchange for some barn work they want done. She is a very experienced trainer so anything I don't know she probably does!
