My 2006 APHA Gelding Out of A Danson Impulse

This is Gus- my new coming 3 y/o. I got him in June, met him in May when he came into training at the farm I train at for halter breaking.
I saw him lunge and decided I HAD to have him and guess what, I got him lol.
These videos were taken of approximately ride 12. I plan to show him W/T HUS next year and get him used to the show scene stress free and not push too hard. Mid or end season I hope to have him loping...he just wasn't strong enough physically or mentally this year considering he went from not being halter broke to being broke to ride in about a month and a half.
I know these videos are just snippets, but let me know what you think :)

I'm not in a critiquing mode, but I must say that in the riding views (well the one that I watched) you are making him go behind the vertical at times. I doubt you are purposely doing it and it is hard to know exactly...but thought you might want to know

He will be an All-Around WP/HUS pleasure horse.
He is in english tack in the first video because that's what I primarily ride him in as that's what he'll be shown in mostly next year, after that, he will move into showing both Western Pleasure and Hunter Under Saddle.

This is because I'm asking him to bring his nose in, he isn't consistent yet as he's only 2 and hasn't even had 30 rides yet. He does come BTV, but these are only for split seconds, he isn't being held there.
Thank you for pointing it out though.

I like him. I like how he moves, and I think he is doing quite nicely for two years old.

I think he's going to be a cutesy. Once he develops and gets into shape I can easily see him as a decent show horse. Good for you! Make sure you keep us updated on him :)

I like how he carries himself...I think he'll make you a better western horse than English, once he develops more and slows down.

My turn to "Attack" huh? It's really, really hard to critique a 2 year old and it's rider but I'll give it a shot. Once you build his neck muscles and get him collected he'll be really cute.

I know that riding babies really messes up a person equitation but you are allowing your legs to slide forward into a chair position, you also almost look like you could use a hole or a half hole in your stirrups but I do know alot of people will ride with their trainer saddle stirrups a little short so you may be doing that on purpose. Also I can't tell if I'm looking at your actual heels or if I'm looking at a spur strap but it looks like your heels are up. pushing your heels down as you know will help deepen your seat and slow your horse.

He's cute, you should have fun with him. The only major issue I can forsee you having with him is (IF APHA is like AQHA) that he's small compared to the 17 hand monsters that are the current "in" thing in the show ring.... but he's flashy and cute...I like him.

"Be a best friend, tell the truth, and overuse I love you
Go to work, do your best, don't outsmart your common sense
Never let your prayin knees get lazy
And love like crazy"
