Smile hunter/jumper prospect?? picc heavy

Critique his conformation!! Pick him apart! What do you think of him as a hunter/jumper? Anything else you might think he wud be good at??
You can critique my riding if ud like!? Anything that comes to mind!!

He's a 3 year old registered paint! (of course I would jump him when he's a bit older!) 15.3 hands and growing!

He looks pretty cute. He's all legs! Haha. I can't say anything about confo because the pics aren't right for a confo critique. I think he would be very flashy in the arena!

Unfortunately you can't tell too much about the conformation of this horse with those pictures; if you can get one side-on with the horse squared up, no tack that would be best! :)
In other news... super cute!! As for hunter/jumper... if you're planning on doing anything rated, he won't fly as a hunter horse. They still have an awful stigma against loudly colored horses unfortunately. Jumpers though? Anything goes as long as it jumps!

So hunters are 'Horse-color racist', eh? Lol.

He's cute, but I'd like to see a video. From the pictures, it looks like he has more knee action then hunters like.

In a word, yes. It's not "traditional." They like plain colors; chestnut, bay, black, brown, grey... just not combinations :)

In my area though, there are several paints that do VERY well. Paints are becoming more accepted

He's very cute! I have heard of the discrimination against paints, etc. But don't let it stop you!

Agreed. I think the stigma against color has been out for several years. I see paints ALL over the A circuit now. In fact I showed a paint last year extensively in the A circuit hunter ring and was quite successful. I see paints win undersaddles and even paint ponies win the model (although grey welshes still mostly rule that arena!).

Like others have mentioned, it's impossible by your pictures to judge his conformation. I would like to add too that there is a vast difference between hunters and jumpers. A hunter's conformation can be quite different from a jumper's. If you really want an assessment I'd post a video of his movement.
Very cute horse!
