It really depends on what you want to do with him?
Is my idea of an ideal sport horse prospect? Ehh, not so much.
Does he seem to be a good guy? Yes, absolutely. He seems like a perfect second horse, or move up horse. He seems to be very "ammy friendly", tolerant of riding mistakes, terrific auto changes, steady and reliable to the jumps. He looks like an ideal horse to take an ammy or junior through the lower level jumpers or eventing; and a confidence builder.
Does he lack scope? Eh, from the height of the fences in the video it's hard to say. He looks to be scopey enough for the 3' or 3'3"; and frankly, too much scope is a negative for most ammies and juniors. The penalty for missing a distance should not be being jumped out of the tack, many riders find that discouraging.
If you're looking at him to do 4' or go advanced, I suspect he's not the horse, though without seeing more of him, it's hard to tell.
A nice horse that will take care of his rider, give them good mileage and not scare them, teach them something and not be a total dead head or push button?
He might be just the ticket?
