Jumping horse?

So, I found an amazing big jumping paint boy. I am an intermediate - advanced rider, at least on the flat, but I dont get many chances to ride any jumping horses, I know how to jump, my nick-name is velcro-butt (lol), but would like an jumping horse that likes jumping and can help advance my minimal jumping skills. And I found this guy, he is super cute, would go with Casey (she is a black and white Pintabian x TB). Theres a video of him jumping.



This horse is big, flashy and athletic. He's registered 6 years old gelding, 16hh, he has really done a bit of everything. He has done ranch work and trail riding. We have been jumping him and he really seems to like it, he went to a 3-day event in the summer and did great! He would also make a nice english or western pleasure horse. He needs a confident rider intermediate on up would be fine or even a confident advanced beginner who rides regularly. He has a great build for a paint, very leggy. He loads, stands for the ferrier and he'll stay tied all day if you want him to. Up-to date on everything. Please email with any questions or call ---------. 4500obo

English Pleasure (In Training/Has Training)
Eventing (Started)
Jumping (Started)
Western Pleasure (In Training/Has Training)

He is a gelding, his temperament on a 1-10 scale is 10, he is registered with APHA, (Pistol Petes Tuffshot). What I see from the photo is a slightly long back and cannons, and it could be the way he is standing or the photo angle, but he looks behind the knee, but other than that I like him! He does toss his head a tiny bit in the video, but the rider is not releasing much at all, or even really following with her/his hands.

Feedback please!

He is in Nevada. 10 is super excitable and 1 being bombproof.

I don't know what your horse economy's like, but he seems very overpriced. For that price I could pick up a solid BN/N eventer around here.

I know, I was thinking that he is a little overpriced, like more of $3,500-$4,000 would fit him more, but he is pretty much the average priced jumping horse here sadly... He is 250 miles away, and they have cheaper horses than my county, you can pay $5,000 for a good ranch horse! I am also looking at-
He is cheap, but he seems headstrong, which I defintivley dont want.
*price Reduced*dressage/jumper/trail Gelding Deluxe!
Also him, I don't like his jump as much.

From the video he doens/t look like he has a "10" temperament...looks pretty quiet unles they lunged the devil out of him before making the video. I would ask the seller why they ranked the temperament as a 10 as to me, that is a horse that is a nutcase just waiting for an excuse.

It could be they thought the ranking menat how they liked the horse's temperament? As mari indicated it could be they got the level backwards.The ad says an advanced beginner could ride which wouldn't be the first thing I would say if a horse had a 10 temperament. :)

His conformation looks decent...he has an OK shoulder angle and that back isn't too long at all. I agree that he looks slightly behind at the knee but that would have to be looked at a little closer when actually seeing the horse in person. Hard to tell from a photo sometimes. As for the cannon bones I can't comment too much as I tend to have thoroughbreds which tend to have longer cannons. What I am seeing here doesn't throw up any red flags as a hunter/jumper type other than possibly being behind the knee.

-hits head on hand-

Why did I say the horse was a 10?? Its a 4.. Sorry bout the confusion there.. LOL

Thank you tlking1 for the advice, and pointing that out, and mari - even though it didn't get across to me at the time! And, maybe it is just his smaller butt that made me think longish back, at a quick glance it looked a bit long, but now that I have squinted at it (I need glasses!) I see what you mean. Casey has that compact butt of his also..

Okay so I wouldn't even bother looking at a horse that knocks down a jump in the sale video. He was set up to it just fine, there was no reason to knock it over except him being sloppy. And someone who puts up a sale video of a horse knocking over a jump obviously doesn't know what their doing. I'd pass him up, jumpers are a dime a dozen in this economy, be patient, another will come along.

I actually like the last horse the best he is most experienced and he has a nice jump. I think the first horse jumps a bit hollow whereas the last horse is using himself nicely.
