He's very beautiful! :) from looking from him to my quarter horse mare, I'm almost posative that he is a Quarter horse. He could be cross something but there is for sure at least part quarter horse. Quarter horses for sure can jump! They might not be known for their amazing jumping skills but every quarter horse at the barn that I go to (its a lot of quarter horses) can jump especially mine and another girl's are great jumpers (even though Cheyenne is 23 years old lol)
Well have fun he's beautiful!

Def. A tb/qh or Appendix. He would def. Be good for HUS. Or Hunter over Fences. You will have to work on long trot with a lowered head. I slow canter with a long stride kinda with a lowered head. In the HUS. He may even be good at Equitation.

Yea. Its always a bad idea to tie a horse with a chain over the nose. If he were to get spooked it could get ugly quick.

I would have never thought he would be a appendix ever! My trainer did not like him because she said he is nothing but a cow hearder backyard trail horse, waist of our money...well me and my trainer are on rocky ground now...I might be getting a new one, and he did lose a lot of weight. He is still green so the english "extended gaits" are new to him. He wasn't even trained western but he was only riddin it. He can't neck rain at all...or go on trail..he is definitely english XD. A girl at my barn who is very good with horse said for the head I should use a training martingale but I can't find them anywere and I have no idea what they look like...and she left for college and she forgot to tell me :/ is there any methods for keeping his head down? Im working on it by the placement of my hands and he lowers his head but does not round it...so I need a little extra help...and he has huge strides and I cannot seem to slow him down to a more collected canter and I cannot get the correct stides in when I jump and he pops over it....

What bit do you use? I would use a copper twisted snaffle, twisted snaffle, or plain snaffle.
