    He is looking really nice for 15!! In really good condition.
    Don't worry I've seen worse sway back on horses that are younger.

    I think you might do alright in hand just give it a go!! You never know unless you try it!

    He looks good for 15. I don't think he has that bad of a swayback either..

    Hmm,for Hunter In-hand,i'm not sure if he would do well. He does have a slight sway back, in In-hand hunters they are judged on lengthy movement(now i've never seen him move) but it seems as he doesn't have the legs to compete against all of the leggy WB's and TB's..

    But that's just my personal opinion.

    I have a stocky Appy,and she doesn't do well in the hunters.

    :O He bit you because she lifted his tail oh noes.
    Why did she lift his tail anyways?

    In AQHA they check there teeth to see if they are parrot mouthed or not. But I've never herd of someone lifting there tail?

    Kinda like "Oh is the bum clean" and what not
    Haha.

    See that's alright for a first go.
    My boy got 2nd in his first class out of 6 I was like oh yeah beat that stupid royal horses. Haha im venting!!
    Long story.

    YES! Do it you'll do good. People can't say what a horse will be good at via photos. Come on.

    My mate deb (she is an older lady) went to the royal and entered her horse in the hunter horse and her horse wasnt build as thick as the other 12 horses and she got champion in her class, then was at the Royal show as well.

    DO IT! It will be a good experience for both of you.

    Its true that photos don't tell you everything about a horse, but his movement is really nice.He always places 1st or 2nd in hunters undersaddle and over fences, and is always grand champion or reserve, even when competeingagainst wb's and tb's.
