Price wise I am unaware of how much you guys pay for! I have to say though, for a 10yo gelding that in unbroken, you'd pay about €2000, maybe €3000 if the breeding lines were good enough.
Personally, for me, low level dressage isn't all about flashy gaits, its about having a horse that is calm enough, but has enough motor, to do what you want and what you ask for. He is a stunner, no doubt about that, but you'd have to spend a lot of time getting his muscles up, and getting the muscle from the underneath of his neck. I'm doing it with Duffy, long and low, long and low...
It may just be me, and I'm no expert, but I'm not happy with the trot pictures. I can't put my finger on it, its just not something I would look for ina dressage horse.
For his price range, is there anything else you can look at that has been started?
