What do you plan to do with him?

He looks green but looks like he has promise.

What are your plans for this horse??
Just curious,.., as he still seems green, but willing.
He's very handsome (a lot of white to keep clean!),
and he looks to have a good beginning/start on him.

Hope it all works out.

For the level of the horse's traiing, I though the rider did just fine. He stayed out of the horse's way and let him move through. He leaned back rather heavily in the stop, but that's the reining type trainig. It would go better if he prepared the horse better, but the rider did a good job of letting the horse have rein when he earned it and not riding the bit. The horse had a decent bend for a horse ridden very close to neck reining. At least he wastn' counter bent as a lot of horses poorly trained into neck reining go.

This horse looks really smart and will give his owner a run for her money.

Well, the sale fell through. I was made aware of this horses issues when I started arranging to sign paperwork and pick him up. The lady he is staying at told me of some things that I, being a college student and not having a ton of money, am not able to take on at this time. I really wish it had worked out but I'm not willing to spend the amount I was to spend on him for a horse with his problems. Thanks for all the replies.
