If he is being sold as a trail horse and that is how you intend to use him, I would not even consider him if I can't ride him that way. How in the world could you know how he will work out for you if you can't?

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

He's okay, but I'm not a fan of his head and neck. They don't seem to fit his body and his front quarters look off somehow. He has a long back, too. He'd probably work out well if you want a good trail horse, but I can't see him doing well in shows. But that's coming from a Thoroughbred person, so take it with a grain of salt. ;)

Not a confo critique, but it looks like he's been rubbing his tail and he probably either needs to be wormed or he needs his sheath cleaned. It bugs the living daylights out of me when people don't do those things.

I like him; he's got decent confo, and at his age, you should be able to tell what you've got under you. He has a nice look to his eye. I hope it goes well this weekend when you try him out

And i have never driven to were he is at, so i would for sure get lost lol, so i would rather have my father go with me. So maybe next weekend...... wait, dam thats thanksgiving, hmmmm i doomed. I hate trying to buy a horse in winter times, never do it when you live in a place wiht lots of snow.
