Which horse should I want?

I want a good show Quarter horse, preferably western and english pleasure. Good conformation, you know the whole nine yards.

I wish I could take horse 1's neck and put it on horse 2.

It's hard to tell much from a single photo but from what I see and the prices they're asking for what I'm seeing, I'd keep looking.

But just to answer your specific question....

Of the two choices you gave, I'd lean towards #1.

That second horse has no pride in herself....if you get my drift.

Hi darl,
Both are over priced, the first one in particular.
Ask for lots of photos from both owners, like is said above, it is impossible to even come close to tell conformation from one picture. I'm not sure I know what you mean by western, english pleasure? You are saying you want to do both?
As for your direct question, it is impossible to say with the info we have here, go see them, you will know.
I don't like when adds rave on about the horses breeding, generally means (at this price) it doesn't have much, if any experience. I don't care if its' grandfather won a million olympic gold medals, doesn't mean this horse is going to walk out of a paddock, in to the show ring and automatically win. The only way a horse and rider win is training and show ring experience!
DGW, I don't know what your talking about with the second horse. Her head is down because that is the western frame. She is actually being very obediant. Head down, like she is being asked, extension, like she is being asked, and look at her ears/face she is listening intently.
Go see them, take someone knowledgeable and impartial to point out important issues, in the end you won't need anyone to tell you.

I don't think they are overpriced.
Invitation Only is a great horse for any bloodline, but I don't know about Tigers Invitation. As far as I can find out, he's a nobody.
As for #2, Artful Investment is a very nice sire.

I like the movement of #1 at the jog, it's very true and with a little work, could be a great example of an AQHA rulebook jog. She also has a very even topline which could really be an asset once her frame is finished, in both english and western pleasure. The only concern is the lope, but it's not so bad that she can't improve it. She needs some suppling and a slower cadence would be an improvement. The extension she exhibits shows promise.

#2 is difficult to say much about because there are no videos. Considering the bloodlines though, she definitely has good potential. Artful Investment is an accomplished english and western pleasure sire. The only worries are the temperment and the "price reduction." Noone bought it before so they reduced. Just something to consider but not nescessarily a bad thing.

Go see them both before you make a decision.

Unshackled might be a little too stocky for english pleasure.

i don't let that be a problem if you want the horse who cares

Besides I mostly like the third one :D

Well if I got him and he was an outstanding western horse, the who cares about English. I could also slim him down.

I like # 1!! I think a better prospect for future and better bred though both are well bred! Better looking too.
