I agree that he's a better hunter prospect. You don't need to apologize for your riding in a video. It's okay to look for the right horse for you at whatever level you are at the moment, and with whatever time you have to ride. However, I wonder, with the time that you don't have to school him, why you would be comfortable inching along an 8yo gelding that isn't finished? IMO he needs some intense training right now, or else he'll be habitually looking for a way to get out of work. Also, I won't pick YOU apart, but I noticed he's not at all on the bit and moving with a hollow in his back. I think he could easily grab that bit and run if given the chance.
