[Hopefully] My Final Choice

I've narrowed my choices down to this boy. All of the horses are over 2hrs away, so I wanted to be sure I liked them from first glance before going all the way out to see them. I think that he fits the bill nicely and he's super cute.

I am 5'2"/5'3" and about 120lbs. I am looking for a horse to do eventing with and maybe hunters. I also want something I could take on a trail and not worry about them freaking out the whole time. Basically, I want a good prospect with a good head on their shoulders.

Here's his ad:
DreamHorse.com Horse ID: 1731336 - UK Timmy Grey

And a couple vids:

He looks like a nice horse, and he's very cute. There is something about him I don't like, but I think it's the rider more then the horse.

The riders are horrible lol, the horse would probably do much better with someone that can ride....I like him, do you have any confo shots of him?

If you're willing to spend time with him, I don't see why he couldn't do what you want him to! He seems to get hotter as the video goes on, but he is a TB. Very pretty and looks ver willing to please.

And yea, he'd be a project, for sure! But I'm up for it ;)

Hm, I would try him. He looks pretty tolerant since his riders have ugly hands and pull him down a lot. If he can do automatic changes, and jump a horizontal 2'3-2'6 course without going nuts, then I think he's worth the price. Good luck!

Definitely try him. Not a huge fan of his movement but as others have said, his rider is not helping him any.

If anything, he's probably a very forgiving horse as evidenced by his keeping his cool while being ridden so poorly. Can't hurt to try him out and see if he has a good mind.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

If/when I go, I'll definitely take pictures so you guys can see how he looks with me. :) Hopefully I ride a little better than the riders he's accustomed to. Haha I can only hope!

Definitely looks like a project,grant it the rider isn't doing him any good.If he has been ridden like that all along you may have to go back to retraining in basics before you try to go ahead in his training.
