I did not mean to make him out to sound bad :( I love his head, his back, his legs, his tail, and especially his fantastic-want-to-be-with-you personality. I just was curious what a long backed horse would excel in... I am training him for showmanship, in hand and under saddle, reining (4h type, not pro), WP.... my daughter wants to do barrels with him but I just don't see him being a speed guy.
