Two Possible WP Buys

My mom and I have been discussing the possibility of selling the miniatures and buying a Western Pleasure/Hunt Seat horse that could do well in 4-H shows, and possibly do more. I have lots of time to maintain their training; I'm riding 2-4 horses a day currently, and adding another would be nothing. We're adding on two stalls to the barn, so space isn't a problem. So...on to the prospects:


I like this guy's build, and his color is a plus. Not sure of his lines....I'm not the best with QH lines.

Videos of him:

This guy is much further along in his training, and I'm familiar with his lines. I'm cautious as to his lope, and if he's able to extend it out faster, or if he's trained to never speed that up.

Please give me your input.

The horse in the 2nd video is not going that slow, and he's over collected, coming behind the vertical, a big no no. The horse in 1st video is evading bit pressure by just dropping his head & sometimes coming above the bit. Both are nice horses, and both would be great for WP if they had a few months with a good trainer. I suspect both horses have nice long strides, I can see it with 1st one and he's pretty green. Both are nice looking horses but both are going to need time with a good knowlegdeable trainer, so I would add $2000 to each horse's price. If it were me, & both horses appeared what they are in the video when I tried them & both passed vet checks, I would go for the 1st one. I would offer $1000 to $500 less and book him in with good trainer for 2-3 months. But that's just me.

I like the second horse better. But it could be just a matter of it having more training.

Thank you both for your input! A few more I found. I know a lot of them have nothing to go on but a still photo...I've asked for videos of all of them:

Big & Pretty Radical Rodder Mare - RV Miss Chip Rodder
Gorgeous Sorrel Overo Mare, All Around Youth Show Horse - AHINTOFSOPHISTICATION
Well-Mannered, kid safe, great for any rider - Zippo J Raft (JR) <--I really like this one
ZIPPO PINE BAR GR.GRANDAUGHTER. SHOWMANSHIP / W.PLEASURE - MY PETITE WEAPON
Gorgous AQHA Palomino Mare! Trade for Running Barrel Horse - Otoes Dimond Echo
All Around, Child Safe Show Horse - KS Country Milo
4 y/o WP&HUS AQHA Great show horse! - Shez Skippin Hot

This search has me very excited; it's been so long since I've worked with a QH.

Hard to beat a Zippo Pine Bar gentleman in pleasure & overall temperment as well. I like your choice best.

And KS Country Milo. I'm not that impressed by the videos:

Both of those horses are quite nice, 2nd horse is doing quite well despite a bouncy "posting to the clouds" riders. First one cants to the inside just a bit, once in awhile, that means it's been slowed down more than it can handle. But only a couple times during the whole video, rest of the time, quite solid and cadenced.

Just looked at the asking price for both horses, 2nd one is way over priced, it's a green horse and needs more training. 1st horse is good to go with a good instructor.

I agree re the second one...I just don't like him for some reason. I still especially love Zippo J Raft, Fantasies of Winter, Bet I'm Good, and RV Miss Chip Rodder. I'm anxious to see a video of Zippo.
