What could they do?

Hi all,
I was wondering if you could take a guess at what these two would be good at based off of build.

6yr 16hh gelding. Loves to jump, not a big fan of speed but isn't insanely slow (unless asked) Also, his back has gotten a lot stronger since this pic.

4yr 14.3yr mare. Havent tried too much with her but she has speed and she knows it.

Thanks so much!
Depending on weather tomorrow I might be able to get new pics or some videos of their movement.

They both look more western to me, but I think the second one could go either way. For the first one, maybe trails or pleasure, and for the second one maybe speed events, rodeo, cow stuff, or trails. Jumping maybe?

* keep in mind I know very little about confo and relation to disciplines*

I honestly think you could go eitherway with both- on the pleasure side of things. Showing.. I don't know enough about confo pertaining to which discipline.. but I think your gelding would look awesome cutting cows, or under an English saddle doing lower level dressage.

As for your mare.. she's a cutie! I think she'd like hunter jumper, dressage, and maybe western pleasure.. but seeing as she's fast the western pleasure one may not be all that fitting.

Cute horses! I really like your gelding. He's built solid

Yeah, I could see the gelding as a dressage horse.

Im actually talking to a friend about maybe doing dressage with him. For living in a cowboy town there's more English riders and trainers here than western.
