Novice HUS?

Hello Everyone,

I am new here, I have been on a different forum like this for a while now, but thought I'd join this one and try to get some opinions on my gelding. My gelding's name is Rooster, he is a 2002 Dun Tobiano APH. He's registered udner APHA. He doesn't really have a 'set' disapline right now, I've been debating back and forth between what I want to do with him/what would be best to do with him.

One of the members on the forum that I'm also on, thought he would make a cute HUS horse? I want to do a few APHA shows in the feature if I got him going good doing english. I dont want to get rid of him/get a "HUS" prospect, just go with what I have at the moment. (: So, just looking for opinions of people out there who have more knowledge about HUS than I do, if he could do some APHA shows (Novice division probably) and Open shows. Here are a two videos of him, one taken when he was ridden western, and the other english. Please excuse my english riding, I'm a western rider, and have little experiance with english. thanks. (:

English Video: November 27, 2011.

I think you need to choose which way you are comfortable with him and start working him. I dont think he is HUS material and is better suited to Western however that is not to say he couldnt be shown both ways, he just wont do as well in HUS. His topline is underdeveloped, he is rushing at the jog, he is heavy on the fore. Lots of work to do with him but he is a nice horse. Best of Luck
