There is nothing really wrong about this horse. He is an english type ridden by a rider that is a western rider and doesn't really know what to do with what he has got under the saddle.

This horse needs to be taught contact to bring himself together to balance himself and the rider is not showing him to his best advantage.

Thanks! Yah I would like to have him go english and see about dressage work maybe even jumping if he seems right for it. He sure is big for at like 16.+

He looks green broke, as you can tell he is unbalanced by his fast movements and his head pops when he shifts gaits. It does not help that the man riding him is leaning forward and bouncing. (not here to critique the rider though ) Very beautiful to look at. He looks nicely started... If your looking for a very easy project horse i say go for it. just needs little tunes ups i say.

From my view if your looking for a western horse, he is not the type. He seems to have to much go to him, and I think he would be actually better directed as an english prospect.

I dreamed about him, being something untouchable to me, untamable, and wild.

I don't know if this is a conflict of interest or not, but the people who own this horse are actually ON this forum, and they've listed him in the Classifieds section...I thought his name sounded familiar.

for 10 i would not get him. unless thats what you want. he is stiff. very green and uncollected. lord only knows what habbits that he has formed not to mention bad mannars(if any). im not that impressed due to his age. if you were just looking for something to just backyard ride on or mabey trail ride then i would say sure.. but since you wast him going english you will need to spend a lot of time and tons of training. (jmo) im deffinetly no expert but he does not strike me. but i cant blame him..if he has had training then the people(current owners) should have implemented this to him. he does seem sweet though.

I quite like him and most things that seem wrong with him seem to be fixable with work. Although ten is reasonably old for a greenish horse, that can be okay, depending on what you want.

My opinion is that with horses when you look at one you either know or you don't straight away if you want it. You can ask for all the advice you want but if anything you are just validating your own feelings. I think you know in your gut if you want it, and I think he's a nice horse. Go ride him, see if it feels right, and if you are worried about leg stiffness get a vet check, but if you have only seen him in pics then stop torturing yourself over if he might be right and go check him out (if you haven't already).

I like him alright, im not an show person.. 10 isnt a bad age for a starter horse if that is what you want, depends on your experience as well...I dont think anything that people in here have mentioned will take more than a year to fix..he looks willing to me

I say ride him...If he feels good under you than get him...if its totally awkward and you dont feel comfortable...dont

10 years old is not bad though...heck my barrel horse is 12 and just now really starting to run good

go ride him and if you click then get him...i love his face..he looks curious and ready to learn
