2 yr old TB gelding, how does he look?

This thoroughbred gelding is for free! He has a popular sire, and he is gorgeous in my opinion.
What do you think of him?

Thanks for looking!

He knows when you're happy He knows when you're comfortable He knows when you're confident And he always knows when you have carrots.

He may be free but you'll probably be paying for training because if he was already under saddle (as in not a racing saddle) they would have a video up. He is a pretty horse, though.

Chevy- Go to horseadoptions.com and look at all the Tbreds or Sbreds you can get for free. It's not too uncommon.

^^ the ad says because she has a young family and full time job and doesn't have the time he needs. It also says in the ad that he needs ground work training, so obviously there must be something he needs work with.

I don't think he's been raced, but that will be something I will need to ask the owner. I wouldn't start riding until he is at least 3 or 4, just lots of groundwork training up until then. When it is time to ride, I would see how he is. If he were to need a professional trainer, we would do that for a couple months then.
Thanks!

Also, the reason I am interested, is that I might be moving my horse to a two acre property where there are no other horses. I would be looking for a companion horse as it is, and I would like to get into cross country and jumping competitively in the future, and I have heard many tbs to excel at those disciplines

Ah, but he is registered is why I was questioning. In the videos he obviousley doesn't give a flip if the filmer is there or not as he keeps crying out. He would take a lot of work. Were you thinking on getting him?

Joe, I will check out that link.

Yeah that's what I thought to when I saw the video. He looks like he is very energetic and spirited, which could be a challenge in training.
I am pretty low on the money as it is, even though he's free, he's going to cost alot in hay over the winter, and farrier/vet costs. I am looking for a part time job and am going to be selling a bunch of my tack.
My mare I have is already almost 15, she has issues with her legs. I am going to keep her, but I was interested in getting a younger horse that I can get into eventing with in the future. Thanks!
