    Ok I think I will try that class, and yeas he does move out after a nice warm up, I mean he does not have 10 + movement, more towards a 6, but I have gotten good reviews on his canter. He is a lot better with his head, but he does not tuck it very much, it goes low but not quarter horse pleasure low. Ill try to take so pics soon maybe in my lesson today. He is getting better with his head set though :)

    good :) you don't want his head pleasure horse low, and you don't want it tucked either. His poll should be even with his withers height wise and he can either be on the vertical or have his nose slightly poked out. And he HAS to track up. Forward is good lol. It sounds like he's good to me! Not sure yet if i'm showing tristate next year, but good luck!!! I'll definitely keep an eye on that class if I am to see him :)

    Your horse would defiantly be able to switch to hunters. If he already is slower then there is my 1st concern gone. He has very good knees and position over fences. He's cute and a looker. Maybe to help with your position (which is not horrible) try schooling over poles and small Xs. I jump 3ft consistently and I love going high. But I also love the lessons where we bring the fences down to bout a foot because I can really concentrate on my striding and getting my position over the fences just right. It will also help your horses position to break it down too
