Which pic is better?

I'm trying to sell this horse as a good trail horse. I take him anywhere in just a halter and lead bareback. He can be ridden with a saddle/bridle and all that, but he's one of those horses where you can just hop on and go. He's an OTSB gelding. He had a previous injury to his hind left deep digital flexor tendon, but after a few years rest and many supplements later he's able to be ridden again. (he's still on joint supplements, just in case) Nothing hardcore but he LOVES to go on trails, and trots to the paddock gate every time I come over.

I know these aren't the greatest pictures, and some are just me being stupid. And I just now realized that I put a halter on him that's too big, darn it! Lol But please just pick your fav out of the bunch. I plan on trying to take some better ones soon. I like the first one the best. :) If you think all these pics are bad. What kind of pic would you want to see, if you were looking for a good trail horse?

I honestly think those are very cute pics. But I'd suggest also to take one with nice bridle and saddle on, and may be one with him trotting or cantering. When you put horse for sale you want it to look "professional", not just "pet".

I agree with the above posts. I like the last one the best... then maybe throw in some of him under saddle and maybe you picking up his feet or something

I got summer hating on me cause I'm hotter than the sun. Win-ter hating on me cause I'm colder than ya'll. I'm being hated by the seasons so forget ya'll who hating for no reason!

I too like the last one best, but although I think they are cute, don't think any of them would make good sale photos. I'd want to see him with a proper fitting saddle and bridle being ridden (maybe over some logs or through a stream) as well as some conformation shots and maybe a photo/video of him trotting and cantering.

Their cute pictures, but not what I would want to see in a sale ad

This is what I originally planned, but the boy who was taking the pictures was super busy and didn't have time for a trail ride.
I wanted him to be tacked up, me on him, standing in this creek we go across sometimes. Sound good?

Yes, that sounds much better. The last picture makes your horse look doooown hill. I'd much rather see a picture of someone trail riding a horse and some confo pictures. Oh, if you put a young person on the horse, please make sure the kid is wearing a helmet.

Are you absolutely sure you wanna mess with my carrots?

That's me on him. Lol But no I don't plan on putting anyone on him younger then 12. I'm not selling him as a kids horse, but if I find someone who is above 12 that I feel can handle him then maybe.
