    Exclamation Possible Buy: Fresian Sporthorse

    So I know I am constantly posting horses on here... but here's another! I have been 'iffy' about all the horses this far. But I've had my eye on this one for a while now, just didn't think I could afford him completely up-front. I have since met the owner and the horse, and now have options.

    My Yearling is for sale, I have a few people interested.

    He is two years old now. He was a year or over a year in these pictures. He hasn't been backed yet, but he has been handled. Let me mess with his legs, ears, everything. Never flinched or even batted an eye. This fall he should be ready to at least back & walk on.

    His sire is 7/8 Fresian & 1/8 Saddlebred, a registered Friesian Sport Horse. His mother is full registered Arabian.
    So he can be registered in both the Friesian Sport Horse registry and also registered as Half-Arabian. Which means when I'd show him, we could earn points for not only one registry but both towards year end awards.

    Also, his Dam has Bask as her great-grandfather. He is super close in her lingeage.

    Anyhow. Here are the pics. I am looking at him as an Event prospect, his owner seems to agree.









    Thanks!

    I'm terrible at critique but he is a very handsome fellow. He looks like he has a nice slope to his shoulder, so her should be able to step out nicely. His rear looks like he would have a hard time getting up under himself, and he would have a rough trot.
    I'm only judging by what I know about gaited horse conformation, not sure if it carries over into regular horses
    I can't really tell with the grass but is he a little toed out in the front?
    He is very pretty a great color and a super sweet face.

    I would definitely get a video of him moving if possible. Many friesians (and saddlebreds, unfortunately) have a habit of being 'leg-movers', where there is a LOT of hock action, an no back action. This means their back legs hardly take any weight, and getting them to collect is a skill that not many trainers posses! What you want is a 'back-mover'. Friesians are known for having weak loins, and your guy seems a little weak behind as well... would have to see a video.

    Having a Friesian sporthorse myself, however, I'm partial to them. ;) They mature late so remember to take it easy with him if you do get him, and he does look pretty! Just don't know if he'd be able to do what you'd like.

    Maybe it's just the way he is standing, but it looks like his front legs aren't really straight? It's hard to tell with the grass. He is very handsome though.

    I'm terrible at critique, but he's quite handsome and has such a gorgeous face.
