I cannot even explain how much i love you for saying this. Your.my.new.bestEST.friend. Perfect example of poor training.

And your comment on being semi-broke. He was born in 1998, he is over 12 now. To me at that age, and judging by the horse, hes as broke as he is going to get. Sure things can be fixed and refined such as his turn around.

I did not look at his age to be honest.

I put semi-broke meaning not ready for the show pen (since he was listed as a show horse for sale) also from the little clip I cannot tell how he is around a ton of distractions and noises... but he looks quite and cute!

I bet he would do real well after a month of loping some trails, up and down a lot of hills, allowed to move out and relax.

I'd bet you'd be correct.

I haven't read all the replies, but here goes.

I think his conformation is quite good. He has a good shoulder and good overal body balance, if a little long in the back. I really think he would make a lovely English horse. Why don't you market him as such? He did seem better moving out more and his knee action would be loved in dressage.

I agree with everyone else that he looks like he has nice confo, but he would be happier English. Though I have never completely understood WP, with the making the horse go so slow and sticky in the movement. None of them seem happy doing that...

Back to the point...! He should be English, as he looks much happier moving out!
