Cool Potential Purchase- Paint horse 16.3

Feel free to tell me what you think of my riding, and how you think I work with this horse. We were riding in "soup" it was so muddy, so it is hard to get a real feel for his movement.

On a note: He is not trained in english whatsoever, so he is a project.

Horse needs to go MUCH more forward. The gait is so stifled, he looks lame because of it. No matter what discipline you ride, the basis for riding should be forward energy. Once you have forward, you can adjust to what you need. But I would concentrate on getting that horse to move.

I love his coloring. I love baldies. I'm not much on movement but it looks like he is willing. Especially since he was riding in slop.

If he was WP trained he might be moving this slow, but his head wouldnt be that high. Can't tell how tight your holding the reins but it seems like you are trying to push him forward with an very exagerated post rather then with your legs. If it was me trying him out, I would keep looking, unless you want to spend alot of time/$$ retraining him.

Thanks for everyones input.
Im not sure if he has a background westurn pleasure or not, but that would explain it. (i know they've tried reining, barrels, competitive trail, and he's been roped off of)
When I was riding him, he was really tense, and prancy, I think it was because of the bit. It looked like this- (I think my posting was affected by the prancy-ness, because I normally do NOT do that, then again, I could have been sub-conciously doing it, or even a combination of both)

I belive he was prancy because of the bit, it was crazy harsh, and even the guy who owns him, was like "hes afraid of this bit" It looked somewhat like this

Although the one the Paint had, had a longer shank and it was curved more, and it had a curb chain(tightened as tight as it would go)

So because of this, I didn't use any contact with his mouth- so that might explain his head.

If I don't like the horses I go to see this week, im going to go back and ride him in a D-ring snaffle and see if it helps, im also going to ride somewhere with good footing.
