    It may be a stupid question, but what do they mean by dancing?

    Doesn't look like a quarter horse, either. Looks like it must be part gaited. That walk is not a qh walk. Could not tell what sort of bit or hackamore that was, but the horse sounded like it was roaring . Maybe just tense or frightened, but his breathing was odd.

    Thats what I felt that he was frightened. Sounded like it for sure.... kinda felt bad for him he is gorgeous tho and I feel he has a lot of potential in the right hands

    I'd be concerned. The add says to me that the owner really doesn't know much about horses, and looking at it ridden, to me it just seems that it doesn't really do anything. Just roughly aided to do things. Doesn't really relax, round up or accept aids. I'm always cautious of horses owned by inexperienced owners - they seem to create a world of problems. Have you seen it in person?

    I think its quite a lot to pay for a horse that doesn't do anything, hasn't done anything and isn't particularly well bred (that I know of).

    Personally I don't like him. The video and pic don't show enough to critique him but IF he is a Quarter Horse he is stallion as are all the horses this seller has for sale. He is definitely short striding in the front either because he has a problem or the person riding him (which is likely)has him messed up. I also can't see the bit but it definitely has a long shank for a very young horse. He also looks like he lacks bone and appears to be way too refined in the legs...He has a nece shiny coat but that's about all I like about him.

    The "dancing" the horses do is a trained gait - their front feet and legs are whipped to make the horses high step. Some of the trainers call it a piaffe, but it's not a true piaffe.

    They will train any breed of horse to "dance," so it's very possible that the horse is a quarter horse.

    He looks like a very very very green QH that is not very typical of the breed and who is being badly badly ridden.

    He looks like he needs to be cut and needs to be started over and have a foundation put on him.

    You looking for a horse for now or a long term project? He is the latter and not the former.

    I'm no expert by any means but there's something about it all that bothers me too. Also the fact that the guy is pretty big on a barely 4 year old horse, spurring himm nearly the whole time he's riding him. The hors seems uncomfortable and confused. He is also overpriced for being young and inexperienced. I think he could have potential with the right owner and the right training but I don't know how much you would have to correct or reteach him due to his previous owner's lack of knowledge and experience.
