    Handsome fellow. Love the coloring ;)
    He has a nice shoulder on him
    Neck needs some filling out as it looks long right now
    Good, clean front legs
    Back is of a nice length
    Hard to really tell if he is bum high.. in the one photo he looks like he is but it could just be the ground
    A bit of a "jumper's bump" on his hindquarters, and they needs muscling as well
    Back legs give the impression that they would be correct were he standing square

    He certainly is flashy!

    The main thing I dislike about him is his steep croup. I like his shoulder, neck placement, nice straight legs although he seems to stand under himself but that could be because he isn't squared up, nice short/ good angle pasterns... I like him... Worth going to look at!

    He is cute! I don't know exactly what traits one would look for for a trick riding prospect but there isn't any thing super scary that I noticed! Its hard to say much about his legs with the pictures, but his shoulder angle is ok, although it does not come close to matching his hip angle. I am not a huge fan of his hip angle, he looks a bit gooserumped..might make for a short stride. In the one picture he looks awfully downhill, but its hard to tell if he is standing on a hill or what. His neck attachment is decent, but can't really see his throatlatch area. He has a cute face and a nice "look" to him.

    Good Luck!

    He's flashy enough. Is he wide enough? For some reason - and I'm probably wrong, I thought such horses for trick riding, should be a little wide in body.

    Needs some building up now, since he still does look a bit immature. I really don't like his croup though. And what about his temperament. Will he be likely a horse to train for your trick riding?
