To me he looks like his shoulders a slightly to upright for jumping, also his stifle SEEMS to be quite high (lower the better)

His legs are clean and straight, I like his neck and face...

Yeah, I'm waiting for the jumping videos before I get too serious about him. I like him other than that though :) a lot!

I would avoid him, for two reasons. One is that he was jumping high as a youngster, 3 is a bit young in my opinion to be jumping 3 1/2 foot. The other is that the ad says he placed in the 2000 whatever... as a 2 year old? Was it in hand? Or ridden? Again, this sets off my "started to early, too hard, too fast" alarm bells.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Oooh good point! I think it is in hand, because the owner mentioned someone who was the "handler". But the jumping as a 3 year old is definitely not a good thing.
