    Critique Trigger

    Hes a 21 year old QH gelding. He was used for barrel racing, calf roping and reining. He acts like he's 10, body is in good condition. Critique him for me I'm looking to buy him. He does ride english too. He's a trail horse manily but with A LOT of go in him.

    What would you want to do with him?
        08-13-2009, 07:41 PM
    Probably just to putter around on. Trails, I love trail riding and maybe a few shows. Probably just english w/t/c classes for fun and maybe a few fun shows.

    He looks like a nice solid trail horse! I'm sure he would look great in the show ring too.

    There is a good chance of arthitis in his joints from his previous high octane careers, but that can usually be maintained by supplements and possible prescription medications from your vet. He looks like he has many good riding years left in him.

    Actually the woman says he doesnt have arthritus. I asked her and she has owned him since 2002 but has known him since 1997.

    It might just be the weird footing, but he seems a little stumbley to me.

    ^ That's what I was thinking.
    For fun and trails I don't see why not. Try him out, and definitely get a vet check.

    The footing look ok from the pics, but I have to agree there's something off about his trot in that video. It's only a couple seconds long though...could've just picked up a rock. I would either ask for a longer video or go try him yourself, but after seeing that vid, considering his age, and his work history, I would DEFINITELY get a vet check!

    Ooops I forgot to add. That video was the first time he was ridden in about 2 years and he hasnt been ridden since. The video was taken this february and he hasnt been ridden since.

    For him doing barrel racing and the disiplines where he does sharp truns, and going fast he does have a high change of getting arthritis a few years on. Most barrel, and jumping horses do. I would buy a younger horse english_rider,
