    He looks small, would that be a problem for you?

    IMO he doesn't have a very exeptional trot.
    He is 15.2, plenty big for me. He is very cute! For the budget I am working with, I can't be overly picky. There will be a compromise somewhere to get the best horse for the money, I am sure. Thank goodness for this site, it really helps a girl to get over horse blindness that comes from an exceptionally cute equine face! ;P

    I quite like him, he looks like a nice all rounder type of horse. You said that you want a horse to build your skills, do you have any specific plans?

    I know exactly how you feel about the budget thing! You can still get a horse with a lot of heart and talent on a smaller budget. The trick is finding them ;)

    My plans basically are to completely master the basics so that I have a solid foundation. I started riding a lot later than most people riding competitively, so I feel I need to focus and make up the lack of saddle time through independent experience. I am an equine science minor, and also on the univeristy equestrian team. I have been taking lessons for Hunt Seat and have made excellent progress, but I need my own horse so that I can grow as a rider through those private experiences and learning how to reflexively solve problems, things I can't learn in the schooling ring. Not to mention, I just want to ride, and ride more!

    This search has been challenging. The few that have seemed ideal always slip through the cracks. So many Western horses, makes it difficult to choose as well...especially for an english rider. :/ I have definitely kept the reality that I might have to train one to English.

    Well it depends on what you want I guess. The mare you originally posted is in an entirely different class to this little guy, she looks like she could have been a serious competitive mount.

    This guy looks like he would be a jack of all trades and master of none. Don't take that the wrong way, I DO like him! If you want to finish him (I guess he is young and requires more training?) then he would be a great project for you to take on if you want to train in a variety of diciplines and dabble in each. A lot of it would depend on how he rides and whether you want to finish a green horse or not.

    Oh yeah, I agree. I am not worried about snagging a grand prix prospect at this time. I am just looking mainly for walk/trot/canter and trails, maybe a little cross country later on. I will buy the Ferrari after I learn how to handle the Mustang Gt :P

    I wish the Hanoverian would have worked out, but it was really a bad deal for her owners, IMHO because she was worth WAY more than what I have to spend.

    That is a good way of looking at it! Good luck, be sure to let us know how he goes if you can see him

    She looks amazing! She has some wonderful conformation. Hope you find what you are looking for.

    He's a cute little guy! I know you have to be aware of what your budget can buy you but as someone else stated, his trot doesn't seem to have much "oomphh" to it. I mean, a great trot can be trained into a horse but it always helps if he can already provide 75% of the trot. :) I really don't see any Freison in him. His legs and hooves are TINY and his body is like a Quarter Horse. But if his papers say that's what he is, then it is!

    Somehow not unexpected.

    If she is from the line I think she is then selling her would have been a very dumb to have done.
