Thinking about getting this horse. He is a TB gelding, 16.3 HH advertised.
I'm about 200 lbs -- planning on trail riding, and maybe (very beginner) dressage lessons. Not very interested in showing right now but I've always loved watching dressage. I grew up riding Western though and it's been years since I've really ridden. I am working on loosing the weight (lost about 50 lbs in the last year) but slow going, esp going into winter when it's dark so early, and I would like to ride now, without fear of hurting the horse if we go for a longer ride & run a bit.
So -- critique away. =) Let me know, honestly, if you think he can handle the weight (he's not a little guy, so...). This is the only picture I have right now (well, plus a head shot, but that doesn't tell a lot)...may be able to get more in a couple days. (Haven't gone to see him in person yet, hoping to get some advice/info here before I do)
ETA - I'm having a hard time deciding if that back ankle is swollen or if he's just standing funny.
