    His rear end is nice enough. Cute face... awkward neck/shoulder but do you have any "in action" photos?

    Keep in mind if he's over at the knee you may run into issues down the road. I got one this past fall knowing he had problems and was told he would need corrective shoes to be ridden. He was off 3+ years and just had a normal trim. Its a long process but were doing corrective trimming with him to try to get him sound.

    If you like the horse and the vet approves I would buy him in a heart beat!

    What stands out to me is how upright his shoulder is, and the way his neck ties in and appears rather awkward... and I wish his hocks were a tad lower. But I'll be honest, something about him resonates with me! He's sweet-looking. I'd like to see more pictures to get a better idea of what he's like.

    I don't think he's so over at the knee that you'd run into problems.

    I don't think he looks that bad over the knee either but its hard to tell with these pictures.

    If you get so far as a PPE, I would definitely question that right front-could just be a bad farrier, but does look a bit clubbed.

    What is low-level polo? If someone trains that horse to GP, nobody will care what his head is like.

    Sorry, I know that is an internet-induced rationalization so you don't get stomped by some "expert" who says only perfect horses go to higher than first level, but it is just not true.

    Carry on....

    I think he looks good enough for what you have in mind.

    If by chance he doesn't work out, I have a friend in the East, who rehomes Polo Ponies. She plays Polo herself and plays them all, to see how good they are before placing. Many PPs of course, can adapt to other diciplines. Let me know if you need her number. She runs a wonderful rescue in NY. Usually has several good Polo Ponies and often a few Warmbloods and Belgians.

    A question about over at the knee - someone told me that many TB's are bred to be over at the knee on purpose because apparently it actually makes them LESS prone to injury?
