New eventing lease! Check him out

I have yet another new horse I'm riding. Hopefully I stick with him until I move

Meet Doc (Or Conner, new owner hasn't decided yet).
He's a 17 hand TB, I believe he's 17 years old. Not sure. He competed at Rebecca Farm a few years ago (Host of The Event and our 3* facility) I believe he did their novice course. Came out 8th out of 2o-something.

He's very light in the mouth and a total gentleman. Here's some pictures of his old owner and new owner riding him. None of me yet though. Please no critique on the rider:

He looks like a great horse!! You will have to keep us updated! The only thing I noticed was that he looks a bit heavy on the forehand. He can be light in the mouth but that doesn't mean he's rocking his weight to his hindquarters. But then again, I've never ridden him before and he just may look that way. :)

Yep. He was here. He had been out of work except for a few with one girl who I am told would put him "in frame" but not actually ask him to work. I've been taking flat lessons with him asking him to stretch and round his back and use his bum rather than just look pretty and run around on his face. Still getting used to him, but it's been an improvement from the first time I rode him.

Thanks :) Im hoping to show him at the end of the month at a little schooling show/derby
