I like him but really dislike how he is shown in the video. He was pretty much jogging around not using himself at all. and notice how they didn't show the whole trot to canter transition. that bothers me. But he looks cute, i bet he'll be fun for lower dressage with training.

That guy looks good and has an attractive gait, but he's got an awful lot of "Whoa". I'm impressed with the rider - it's not easy to do a good-looking post at that incredibly slow trot. I noticed a couple of times that - as slow as he was going already - he tried to drift out of the trot into a walk, and I ask myself "how much leg is this rider having to keep on him in order to maintain the pace we see?"

IIRC on the first canter sequence, he goes a few paces and then drops right back into a trot.

Will be good to ride him and find his 2nd and 3rd gear. He really is a nice looking, well proportioned guy.

The video makes me like him more. He is *severely* lacking any forward motion but there were a few glimpses in there of what he will be capable of once he is encouraged.

Nice gaits and a good attitude, might be well worth the long drive to go and see! I think he will have no trouble with lower level dressage given some assertive riding, keep us posted!

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Was this one of the sellers that (rudely) wouldn't return your phone calls? Or did you get the chance to see him?

No-this lady is great. We talked to her last night and are calling her trainer today. I just wish he was not 3 hours away!
