Super cute!! Have you ridden him yet? That could be the clincher. And, if he has just about everything you're looking for in a horse, then that says a lot. I was just reading an article about jumper conformation, and it said not to put too much emphasis on conformation as many times it's the personality and heart that matter. You could get a horse with perfect jumper conformation who isn't willing and ends up being a worse jumper than one with some faults. You just never know. Anyway, that perspective sounded logical to me so I thought I'd share. I'm also horse shopping, and for a jumper, and the more I look (and the opinions I get) the more I realize that it is the horses personality and how you get along that should be a good part of your decision. He looks like a really nice ride, he's cute, and looks willing and relaxed. Let us know what you decide!!
