Ok so my friend is wanting a cute little paint gelding as a buddy for her mustang/qh and for an extra horse to ride on trails. But he's really over at the knees. I've never had a horse that was over at the knees. So my question is would he be sound for some riding? Not a lot just for her to ride on some trails? I know the farrier can do some corrective trimming to help him out, and I heard they can do some surgery to correct it? But honestly I have no idea what to say to her so I figured I'd come here and ask :) He seems sound, no pain, or anything just looks funny.
Here are some pics of his legs
I don't know why he is standing like that in the last pic. I think it was her way of getting him to square up. He didn't do that when we saw him no did he seem to be in any pain
