Went to look at a potential purchase today!


Do I look too big on him?


He was super sweet and mellow. He was in my pocket the whole time. He needed a lot of leg to pick up the canter, but he is out of shape and has pretty much just been sitting in the pasture for the past few years. He's about 7 or 8 years old. I rode him bareback for a little bit and he has the smoothest trot I've ever ridden. I love him!

Can I get some objective and honest critiques on him? We still have about 3 or 4 more horses to look at, but he is awesome and I really really like him.

Nothing jumps out at me conformationally. He is beautiful--his coloring is absolutely phenomenal. He sounds like a great horse for you!

Now I see them! I tink you two look good together! Your legs will be slightly higher once wrapped around a saddle and in stirrups. I'd say he's the one!
