    Beautiful horse. I don't really think there is any reason that you can't do both english riding and halter classes if you want to. His confo is solid. Is the ground in the first pic uneven? He looks really downhill in that one but doesn't in any of the others. Other than being downhill in the first pic, there is nothing at all that I see wrong with his confo. He is certainly an eye-catcher. I love that bleach mark on his left side as well.

    I think he would do well in either, really...He has really nice conformation.

    He's nice and thick.Looks like a western horse to me ;)

    He's overbent and not tracking up in the second pic, otherwise he looks like he could do either style!

    Wow thanks guys, I geuss I picked out the right halter horse for me... thanks again!!! :)

    I think you could try both. If you get him trained well to go both ways, that will increase his value if you ever sell.

    He's gorgeous. I think he can do both =) he's got a beautiful head set!

    He is a nice looking, thick boy. I think he would do fine any most things

    However, he is very, very behind the verticle. He will be happier (and place better) If you ask him to stretch into the contact, not tuck away from it
