    I don't think Rated Hunters are stinted against Paints that much anymore, if at all. Especially in the US. I've seen quite a few paint colored sport horses at rated Hunter shows and rated Dressage shows both, and they place really well.

    I don't think you'd have any problem doing Rated with him.

    Is that saddle too wide for him? Maybe I'm seeing it wrong, but it would be a good thing to make sure the saddle fits him properly, especially if he is just started under saddle. The last thing you want is the saddle to hurt his back. :)

    I agree that it is hard to judge his conformation. But he looks to have nice movement! He is only three, so he will grow and mature more, as well as fill out more.

    Good luck with him, he is quite a looker! And seems very willing and level headed.

    Yeah It's bad....My friend has an Appy that jumps beautifully, but she can't take him to big shows because the judges are too stuck up to look past his spots. They seem to like Bays and browns.

    He is quite an adorable guy though. I think he would probably make a good jumper, depending on his temperment and whether or not he can take sharp turns and crank up the speed. You can always just show locally in the hunters though. Theres tons of shows that aren't rated that are a lot of fun.

    My saddle is a flex tree saddle. Because I like to ride multiple horses with it. Its fits him really good. :)
    And he is the best 3 year old ever! Sometimes I forget he's so young. And he has an amazing talent for jumping. He has jumped over the electric fences 2 times in one week to get in the grass. And the fences r bigger than him. I think jumpers might be the way to go with him!

    He's a pretty good natural jumper. He recently jumped out of his pen twice. Into the grass. The fence is electric and bigger than him. He has not one scratch.

    And those fences aren't short, wow! Well, I suppose jumping over electric will certainly teach him to be a tight little jumper haha. You should have np jumping him.

    Yea. That's exactly what I thought. But I was suprised because he is soooo lazy when im riding. Its crazy.

    But the other wierd thing is he wont jump an actually jump. Like I tried it in hand once. Like a half foot X and he crashed through it. But if theres a puddle or a rut in the ground then hell launch himself over it. He is a verrryyy strange horse!

    I wouldn't really say the judges are stuck up, 99% of A rated judges are very, very traditional. They like to see the whole package as a hunter horse, horses with loud color patterns are very distracting.
    Way back when I showed hunters (80's-90's) in my area it was bays and greys, that's it no chestnuts, nothing with markings etc. Most of those judges still judge the rated today.

    As for the o/p horse, it's something that many judges can look past now a days. My little sister has a pony hunter who is pretty ugly in my opinion with loud coloring and a ridiculously small head on a huge body, but, he's a very very fancy mover and they do very well in the rated stuff.
