4 Year Old Quater Horse Gelding


Pjs Classic Style Quarter Horse
Hypp n/n
4 Years Old
16.1 Hands

Pj is super quite, kind of lazy, and very not-spookable.

Looking to show Western Pleasure but would like an all around horse; Western Riding, Halter, Showmanship, Hunter Under Saddle, Trail, ect. Not sure if he would be AQHA level but I'm hoping he is at least nice enough to show at a local level.

He looks like a western riding horse to me! I see a lot of halter blood in him (and obviously he does with his bloodlines) and I see no reason why he couldnt! Id definitally go for it if he were mine!!

Honestly? I really don't like him. His back is really long and he has a very weak looking loin and hindquarter, his entire skeletal structure is very narrow, very upright pasterns on the front, upright shoulder, and his neck is really skinny and his throatlatch is coarse (makes me wonder about cribbing ). Those pictures of him at the jog make him look like he's moving like a halter horse...peg-legged and short strided.

He does not crib and this I am 100% sure. The fact that you can tell a cribber just by conformation amazes me. Thanks for your input and concern but he does not crib.

Yeah, I was told by someone he was too light/white for AQHA shows...
I don't much care about his color, his personality is just exceptional

I like him. Kind Eye, clean neck, slightly long back (not terrible tho) nice hip and shoulder, legs look clean and color is not the sought after color in QH world but if he has a great work ethic, he can more than make up for that.
There are judges that hate palomino and you will run into that. If you like him, have a PPE and buy him.

It is hard to judge confo properly when the horse isn't standing on level ground,is resting his leg & is not standing square. Previous harsh critique I don't agree with.
I'd like to see better pics,but first impressions I don't mind him & see potential to make a nice show prospect.
