    Critique gelding for timed events

    A friend of mine is looking at this gelding for her daughter to use for timed events; barrels, poles, goat tying..etc.

    What I know about him:

    He's a coming 12 yr AQHA old gelding. Been used for team penning and for time events before.

    I really don't care for him...but I can't decide if it's cause he's not my style of horse...or if it's something particular. I did tell my friend to try to get a PPE done on him cause she thought he was a bit lame in his front left leg.

    I have another video..but hopefully you can see enough of him to be able to tell me "something" from this one.

    I don't care for this horse that much either. Something does look funny with his front left leg. Also he seems to unbalanced at many points during the video. You see him stumbling and dropping his shoulder around the turns. To me this isn't good especially for speed events. I also dont' care for high headed horses. When just doing circles at the canter I would like to see him more relaxed and practicing some long and low. But I am severly picky when it comes to barrel horse prospects and that's the angle Im looking at on him.

    Just a note: They hold the horse very tight, almost like an english hold (two hands, too). Not a fan of that.
