My boss is now selling off some of his horses, and I was wondering what should we market this guy as?
Reg. Quarter Horse, 7 yrs, 14.3hh. Don't know much about Quarter Horse lines, but he is Poco Bueno bred, which seems to impress people. He goes Western and English, has (supposedly) been through Training Level Dressage up to First Level (I'm not sure ,it was with someone else), goes over fences very willingly, but tends to rush. I haven't known him for very long, but he has no collection, and dislikes contact on the mouth and from your legs (I don't know who "trained" him for Dressage, but they did a poor job). We've just started working on those problems after dealing with some others, (he's actually coming along really nicely, I'm so disappointed to see him leave!) but considering the above I think it may be best to market him as something else? Maybe a reiner....? I don't know, but I'd love your opinions!
Thanks so much.
Also, he's a HEIFER in these pictures, he's slimmed down some, I SWEAR! Haha
I know it's a funny angle, and he's not squared up, but it's the best conformation shot I could find. I'll try to get another soon.
So, I've just realised I have no videos other than this "Before" video. Just a little something to show how he moves, I've been meaning to get another for ages! The girl riding him is a lesson student of sorts, so don't hate for those high hands!

Western class we did for fun:
One of his cute face for good measure!
I guess I don't have any of him in English tack, I have a lot fewer pictures of him than I thought! Something I'll have to work on.
Anyway, I'd love your opinions.
Thanks so much!
