Question Registered Morgan - Possible Buy

Interested in this Morgan.
Please tell me what you think.
He has been ridden western/english. Although I would like to do Eventing with him, and Hunters/Dressage individually. I have ridden him, and he has an extremely soft mouth. In these pictures he has more the "show morgan" headset, which I am not crazy about, but when I rode him he was softening to the bit by the end of the ride. It only took about 30 minutes for him to learn I wanted him to stretch his neck down and reach through his back from his hind.

He is extremely easy to mold and to put right where you want him with your seat/legs. That is why I think it will be fairly easy with consistency to transition him over to Dressage.

VERY honest to fences. I did a small crossrail with him, and he was very unsure of where to put his feet, and hesitated at the base, but then with a squeeze of the leg/seat he popped over it. Very trusting, and very brave.

Please tell me what you think. If I can upload my videos from my ride I will.
Please provide information on his bloodlines if you know Morgan bloodlines. I'm interested to know.

Also a side note, he does not park out on his own, that is something you have to ask for. I made sure of this if I had intentions of showing him Dressage/Eventing.

Thank you

The only think I see is that he's a little goose-rumped, and it's hard to see what his legs are really like with him parked out like that.
But otherwise he looks gorgeous! Love that shoulder too, looks like he's a very smooth ride.
How old/tall is he?

Thank you. I wish I was able to get better Conformation shots. Soon, hopefully.

He is 15hh & 5 years old.

I don't know any of the horses in his pedigree but the Funquest lines are considered old working western lines. I believe they were considered government bred horses. Known for willing personality and strong feet and bones.

The Funquest lines are considered foundation bred and have no Saddlebred mix after 1930.

There seems to be some successful dressage horses with Funquest lines on their papers.

I like him, nice head, neck and shoulder and second riding image of him is yummy! Does look like he has a bit of a goose rump, but they tend to be good jumpers!

I really like him! I used to work with Morgans and he's very good looking.
I'd go try him out! They really are very versatile. :]

Wow, he's a real good looker.

I just wanted to bump this and also ad that I am going to be buying this guy.
I rode him again last night and he sold himself to me. I am in love with this horse, his versatility and his personality. He is definitely a catch, he has brains and beauty, and loads of talent.

I will post pictures/videos SOON of us.

I am hoping to compete at Grand Nationals in Oklahoma this October with him.
I am pretty confident he'll do well!

Congratulations, he is a sweet boy!
