Yes! I've been on 14hh close coupled QHs who move out and cover ground like a 17hh WB!!!! These are the 'fun' ones!

First thing I saw was dressage. But, of course, I have to reccomend eventing (I love it!). As long as he can jump safely (he looks sane enough to me), then I don't see why you can't take him to an event :) And any sort of a draft cross should be nice and comfy, so trail riding- if he's fit. I don't know how fast you could go on him, or how tight the turns (although that's mostly based on balance) so that limits some of the options. I'm not too familiar with the western disciplines, so I'll leave that to someone else :)

Thanks everyone :)

I saw a Dressage horse in him instantly but I wanted to see what everyone else thought. I am tentatively considering Eventing now too, but I've never jumped before (besides just goofin around) so we'll see what happens!

One thing is for sure he is a wonderful boy and I love him to death
