My daughter is just wanting to ride, our plan for him is to be a pleasure/trail horse. Someone for her to learn and gain experience on.
Eventually she wants to get into Gymkhana but she knows she will need another horse for that and that would not be for a while.
Once she out grows this guy he will be great for our son and eventually our youngest daughter...at least that is the plan.

We love his face too. What do you all see going on with his rear end?
A little back ground on this guy, he was out to pasture for about a year. He had not been ridden in months when we brought him home and when he was ridden it was by a 9 year old at a walk around an arena. So he has had no "work" in over a year...his body is like jelly. We are starting slowly. On the days we can not ride we take him out into the pasture and go for walks with him just trying to bond and get a little exorcise.
The last time he was truly ridden was in a cowboy challenge, where he had to trail ride, cross a stream, ride in a parade and so on. That was a year ago. Soon after that his owner bought a new barrel racer, formed a huge bond with him and Bristol was pretty much forgotten about. At that time he was just one of 19.
