He's gorgeous. If he were close to me, I'd probably go and look at him! :)

Have you tried craigslist? I've found a few amazing horses on there. Also, put an ad up around the feedstore.

I was looking around on craigslist... Here's one I found.

I just don't know what area you're in, or I'd try to better assist you. :) Good luck!!

he is built REALLY downhill (This is assuming the photo was taken on level ground) and really not ideal for jumping but any horse can do lower levels.

good luck in your search!

there's no way he's going to completely even out, though. Not with that much of a difference between his butt and his withers.

I noticed that and it worried me, but my friend's Qh/Appy was sickly built downhill at 3yo and as a four year old it started getting better and by five it was nice and level. I think stock horses are built downhill untill four or five, from what I've seen. I jump about 2'6" - 3"... would being built downhill effect that? (I wouldnt know because my last jumper had perfect confo :P lol)

i think you would be fine at that level. I took my OTTB who was built downhill to Novice level eventing which is 3'3" and schooled Training level which is 3'9".
