He is a beautiful horse! I think he is great, and you have good taste in picking out a horse, however.... I think if you have $10,000 to spend on a horse and want to show hunters, you should look for horses that are more finished hunters. This is an amazing horse, but he is more of an event horse than a hunter. I am sure he could still compete at hunters and do very well, but if your dream is hunters then focus on a horse that excels in hunters instead of something else.
