Eventing Prospect?

What do you think of this guy?

"Tecnecolor (TC) is very responsive to cues and has big strides. He is started over small fences and has been trained in basic dressage. He is very athletic and would be a great eventing prospect. He is easy to handle under saddle (he is ridden in a plain snaffle) with no vices. Has been barefoot for 3 years. Very healthy, never colicy in the years I've owned him. UTD on vaccinations and worming. Has also had clicker training. He would also be great for Pony Club or as a more advanced lesson horse. Feel free to message me with any questions. Have to sell due to moving and college. "

I'm hoping to lease, maybe even purchase.

My main concern through the whole video is his breathing. Is he a roarer or that out of shape.

I think he's cute, but his hind quarters look so much weaker than his fore. You also have some work to do. That's not basic dressage training... he's going around with his nose to the outside and inside shoulder popped. He just has the basics. Though he seems like an uncomplicated ride and a willing horse.

I would say low level eventer.

Thanks for the reply.

The roaring scares me too... in another video of him on that channel he does it to.. though he is only being free lunged. Hm :/

I think you could do better, honestly.

He's a beautiful boy but the roaring is not something that I would knowingly buy into.

I sent the seller an email about the roaring, so we will see.
He is the best thing I have found for the money, but I will continue to look :)

He is! :)
He looks like a purebred TB to me, but he is appendix.

Yes, but would that effect him more than just how he looks?
