    I personally, am not fond of his confo. He has nice coloring. His price isn't outrageous. He has multiple disciplines which is nice. His neck connects to his chest at a low point. He has a very long hip too.

    I would get more critique from a more experienced critic. Lol. :)

    What are you planning on using him for?

    I'm not too fond of his hips and his neck seems short to me, but I'm not great with conformation.

    Lakotalegend, I moved this to the critique section where you are likely to get more critiques from people. :)

    I like his pattern, but there is too much white there for my taste (a lot to keep clean :) ). He is a good size, seems to have good exposure to various disciplines, good age. Others can give you a good conformation critique. I think if he has done all they say, and he has no soundness issues, the price is okay. I think he would at least be worth going to see and try out in person.

    Thanks, sorry i'm new!

    Yeah, I don't love his confor. I would be using him at a drassage barn, but i'm not even doing training level drasage. The most I would be doing with him is WTCG jump ( he can jump 2'5") and some lateral movement( down the road) trails etc..
    i'm not goingto be doingn anything fancy with him.

    but I wan tto know if his confor. Is so bad that it will affect his everyday ride..

    But i'm just not sure he's the one for me. I am having my teacher take a look,..

    I think he's gorgeous, but to me the price is kinda high. But that's just me.

    $3500 seems a bit much for a horse that isn't registered.

    I really really don't like his croup. Waaaay too steep. His back is too short, and not a nice athletic-type short, more a just too-short back short. He looks to be a little straight-legged in the back as well.
    I'd have to say he's a no-go. I really don't like his conformation.
    I think you could find better for that price.
