Dozer- Confo, movement, and discipline

Can you tell me what you think he would be best in? I love gymkhana but he is too big. He can run fast but tight turns are too tight for him. I have decided to take up a new riding discipline. Let me know what you think he has potential in! I have tons of videos of him but can't post them here for some reason so here is the youtube link: YouTube - Icrazyaboutu's Channel

I will attach some pictures too. Thank you so much for you time and critiques! :) Sorry for the picture overload and the size!

I'm the one in the pink shirt and my friend in the white shirt doesn't want critiques about her or her riding. I, on the other hand, would love those!

I'm not the grandest at critiquing but you need to straighten your back and pull your shoulders back. You look kind of slumped over. I think your stirrups should be just a smudge more forward on your feet, your heels should be a bit further down. I think your thumbs are turned in instead of up? I can't see them too well though.

Well that's my damage! =D Other than that I LOVE your horses color!

first off. I love your horse. I saw him on another post, I was showing the pics to my boyfriend earlier. What breed/breed is he??
I would love to see a horse like that jumping, or in dressage. Does he jump at all? I would talk to your trainer about whats best for him. You need to really get a feel for the horse to get an idea of what his ideal job is. Does he go western?

I mainly ride western this is both of our's second time english so I know I don't have good posture and I need to work on that but it feel of the english saddle is so different and I still have to get use to it. So for jumping- he will jump barrels while they are laying on their sides with and with out me mounted.

As for the breed... he is a PMU so no clue. Thanks for the compliments!

He looks like a Percheron Shire cross...

As far as disciplines, he may do will in dressage, and english type classes He seems pretty athletic

that's what my neighbor said. She said he would be a very pretty dressage horse but I don't know about her judgment. She is kinda crazy....
