Ok.. So, I was offered by an oh so loved relative
to buy me another horse... I would keep Casey to! It would be a jumping horse. Im currently at the level of 1-2 ft. Obviously I would start small at first with a different horse
. But I would eventually be working up higher, so I have no clue the highest I will jump!! But anyways.. I found this horse! And I need some opinions, on what you think!!

Notes: Sound, handsome, bold and friendly, Lukas has 3 great gaits, big stride, scopey jump, soft mouth, always sound and ready to go. Has jumped 3 stadium,will go higher with training, novice x-country, some dressage training. Lukas is in full eventing training in --------. He loves to jump. Honest, will take any jump, water, ditches. He is at home in an arena, and loves x-country. I bought him for foxhunting but he doesnt settle out on country with cattle and a crowd of horses. Some eventing training (as allowed by my finances), as well as trail rides and schooling shows. Worked well with lots of horses in warmup arena. Lukas jumped into water, over ditches, 3-foot up/down banks and more at ------- recently; he has been to several horse parks and easily settles into the work. Loads and trailers, ties and handles well, gets along with other horses. He has a big jump and wants to jump bigger, sometimes faster, so best suited for an intermediate rider or a rider in training. Does a few dressage lessons with other riders at my barn and they love working with him. He trail rides great alone, and with a few horses-likes to be leader. I adore this horse. His price is not reflective of his quality and potential, its reflective of limited training miles.Video on youtube and I linking to this ad. search for Lukas 2011 montage.
Thank you so much!! I was thinking, do you think he is a bit heavy on forehand?? I was thinking that a little. And do you think his uphillness would affect him?? Thank you so much again
