Leasing a Jousting Horse?

If you have seen some of my other posts with horses, I have decided at this time that I will probably not be purchasing a horse until I move to Montana in two years for college. So I'm just looking at long-term leases for now, unless the perfect horse falls into my lap or my old lease horse's owner decides to drop his price

NO I'm not about to take up jousting, but a horse I have just been contacted about is a jousting horse. I would like to know if anyone has experience with former/current jousters, how are they as regular riding horses?

He is a registered, 16.2 Mustang, formerly used as a 10 year old's riding horse. I don't know his age (I was just emailed by the owner), and he is currently being used in the PA Renaissance Festival. I would be leasing him with a friend, and doing light jumping, ring work, trails, possibly a little eventing?

Any opinions? And here are some pictures of the big guy

It would really depend on how seriously worked in jousting the horse has been and the horse's individual capacity to separate "work" (jousting) from pleasure riding. The only way to know if THIS horse would make a good pleasure/riding horse would be to go out and meet the horse, do a test ride (or two or three) and see how it goes.

I've seen him in person at the ren fest. If you can go next weekend you should and see him in action. It's their last weekend. He seems to be really nice and mellow and listens well. There's usually a huge crowd banging and screaming and he does his job wih no fuss!

Thanks for the input! I think we are going to see him this weekend, if all pans out:)
