I like him, but that isn't a good picture to judge conformation... if he's been a pleasure horse for the past few years, don't expect him to look anything like that! Haha
I'm actually thinking that his price tag is a little low for his accomplishments??

Well no. I'm only going to pleasure ride him. I already have my Western Pleasure horse. If I find a younger horse, I may switch, I'm not sure. I want a horse that goes both was honestly.

I am surprised he is priced so low given the overall picture of decent bloodlines, described training, past experience, and looks (from what we can tell). :)

I didn't like 2nd one much (sorry). 1st one is lovely, but I'm very suspicious about the price. Even with market now horse like they advertise only for $1800.... Hard to believe.... May be some hidden issues (either health or training).

Personally I don't like either.

The first one: The coloring is most un-desirable. It makes him look older then he really is. And talk about trying to keep that clean Confirmation is nice tho, but it looks over bred.

The second one: Slight ewe neck Chest doesn't match its hind at all. Neck is too long for its body. Hocks are what they call "out in the country", the hind legs stick too far away from the body. It kinda looks like the horse is parked out in the hind when it has that confirmation flaw. Ohgeeze started jumping at 3 years old? That's a huge huge huge no no.


If I had to pick. I'd say number one .

I love the coloring of number 1, but the white would be a pain to keep clean. :)

I don't care for #2 either. In addition to what others have said, his overall appearance is just awkward.

If #1 is close to you, he might be worth having a closer look at, but I really don't understand why his price is so low...I agree with kitten_val, could be suspicious.

Wow; #1's price shouldn't be that low, I agree.
It's kinda fishy actually. Hmm.

#2; the confirmation looks a bit poor in my opinion.
Also, I agree- she's only 3?! Wow; they started her too early...just wow.
But yeah; the first one's better than the 2nd. But the price just seems too weird & doesn't match up with the horse. They also should have more pics so you can check the confirmation better.

Ride more, worry less.

Personally, I wouldn't buy either, I don't really like either. But if I had to pick number one would be my pick.
