I have a 16 hand rescue gelding that needs a job. He's 10 years old and full of energy. I think he is a walker/quarter horse cross but it's impossible to tell with him. I've heard people suggest draft, thoroughbred, and Morgan mixes as well. The breed doesn't matter so much as whether or not there is a sport or job out there for him. I have considered reining as I am more of a Western rider, but i'm open to English options too. Is there any sport he would be good at based off of his physical build? He's got big feet and blocky knees with a deep chest that narrows at the front like a Walker. I posted a picture of him with this thread.
I keep him at a local barn. I have access to an arena with western and English equipment as well as dozens of miles of trails.
Please feel free to give me some selections or advice with him. There's no wrong answers here and I appreciate all input as Phantom really needs something to work on.
