My horse needs a job.....

Ok, so here is the deal, I have a 6 year old Percheron/Pintaloosa gelding, he aint nothing special but he is a great companion. He is broke to ride but with the lack or riding last 2 years or so I would consider him "green" again. I want to send him off to the trainers to refresh his training. Roman is a very affectionate, and playful and he is quite smart. I am wondering about trying something like cutting with him, he loves to chase around our zebu bull, or chase after the younger horses in the pasture (in a playful manner, not aggressive). I don't have the time to go into huge shows, more so looking for something as a pass-time. Reining and Cutting are events I am curious to learn more about, and would like to try, and too I figured they would be challenging enough to keep his mind active and he would have fun doing. I don't know if he has the conformation, or the right stuff to do any of that, but again I am not looking to go professional or anything like that, just for fun.

Here are some pics, and if you wan't to see some videos of him on youtube here is a link.

Wow I think he is gorgeous! Good luck with him. I have tried cutting and I think it is fun.

When the world says "give up"....Hope whispers "try it one more time"

What would it hurt? Go for it and if it doesn't work out you at least tried. :)

He doesn't have fantastic movement but he does have the body type I look for to be a good solid low/medium level dressage horse.

Fantastic movement is not required to do good dressage as long as the gaits are good and pure.
