Comanche - Belgian/Paint

3rd from the top. I've emailed the seller. She is willing to take $3500 to a good home. This is probably MAX I can afford with if he's my "dreamhorse" I'm willing to work it up. Critique? You can click for more photos.

WHATS REALITY?

So creepy thing... There's a big draft cross who is paint coloured and named Comanche in my area.... Not the same horse/area though!!
I think he would be a great horse for a bigger dressage rider. Depending on hiss talent and work ethic end up being, I can see him getting up to 3rd level. Short back, long legs, sloped shoulder, good hind and an uphill build. It's just going to require a lot of leg and half halt.
He looks like a big, kind guy. If you do get him, go buy an industrial sized vat of whitening shampoo though :P

he's a nice looking horse, though for what you are wanting to do (rodeo and stuff) I would think the lighter the horse the better.

IDK, the ad seems to say alot more than the words typed. It sounds like to me that he is pretty hot and a little touchy. I may be way off but that is just what it sounds like to me. He is gorgeous though.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Yeah, his ad sounds like he's not that easy to deal with. He's too heavy to be used as western horse or for jumping (looks like he didn't get much from paint except the color). And seems to me his price is little too high too. If he's close I'd give him a try ride, but personally he's not my favorite (I like Ryker or Charlotte more). Sorry...

He is gorgeous! I love his colouring and build, and he's got a good jump on him. But I have to agree with the above posters, the ad seems to imply that he is not the most easygoing ride.. if that is what you're looking for, though, then definitely try him out and see how it goes!

Since when can't a heavy horse be used for Western?
Or for jumping?
Waaaaaxed.

I think he would make a fine western or english horse...I like the sounds of him even reading between the lines -- I'm not really sure what you are looking for though
