Side note: He is 16hands, I am 4 foot 11 inches... will I look silly on him?

??!! Silly on him? Most people on here are 5'6 and ride 14.2-15 hand horses! And they don't look silly!
But it depends if your all leg of all torso.
The horse has a nice color, but has a small head and a really skinny/pencil-y neck. He also looks like a peanut roller. He also looks completely bored, and in the third pic, his eyes are closed. I guess he's really calm..... One pic makes him look a tad long backed. He has a nice sloped shoulder,though. And if you try him and he works for you, I'd say go for it!

Oh, I should also add that no, I'm not fond of the way they are riding him but putting time and money into training isnt somthing I mind... so you don't have to comment on his training or lack there of

Here is the extended pedigree
Pjs Classic Style Quarter Horse

He reminds me of my old quarter horse... old halter and performance blood. Likely he will be ok at a few things but not great at any which is fine with me.... Todays Quarter horses just can't win at halter, western pleasure, english, and cow events like they used to!

I like that in a few years he should fill out.

Also I love Skipa Star, I never met a horse with Skipa Star in their pedigree that I didn't like .

I think today I will call to take a look at him!

I like him. He's not a peanut roller, but also not ready to show in WP. He'll probably do well enough in HUS at this point. He's a nice moving horse, seems willing and is consistent. I think he's at a good price too.

Do you think he is too long in the back?
This is one thing that sticks out to me... it isnt terribly long, but still longer than I am used too.

Of course being HYPP tested n/n doesnt hurt either :roll:

Yikes, I just noticed his grandsire's stud fee (Kids Classic Style) is $5000 for 2010. That aint that bad...

This guy (Pj) sure looks long and lanky for a halter bred horse lol

He is a cute boy and has some filling out to do. For some reason he just looks out of place in that western tack, though I don't know that he'd look any better in English Tack. I say go for it. He seems fairly priced and will probably turn out well considering his bloodlines.

He's a pretty well balanced horse. He has a prominent and sloping withers which could give the illusion that his back is longer than what it really his. But his back is not long in proportion to his other measurements.

He should stand well in a halter class. I'm impressed with his movement considering he is mostly halter bred.

To be totally honest, I really like him. He's got a great look to him. He's only three, why would you be overly concerned with his training, he's got ALOT of time to get in the show ring yet. (Obviously not big money shows)
