Best suited for?
I would like to get some opinions on what this horse would be well suited for based on conformation. He is a 5 yr old Paint/Belgian cross, is very responsive and is easy moving- not slow. Thanks! Sorry I don't have any pics of him moving
He might make a good trail horse or barrel horse. But I dont see him doing any western pleasure. He could also make a good roper. It will also depend however how he moves and what he looks like when your in the saddle.
he looks extremely suited to my pasture :) he looks like hes a load of fun.
A motion pic would help alot. But he has a nice hunter look going. You say he is an easy mover so getting him to track up and extend his gaits should be a breeze. I think you would do very well and have loads of fun on him doing combined training (hunters/dressage) and his beautiful markings will just get you noticed that much more. I have a heavy built paint i do that with and he is very sucsessful.
agree on the eventing, this guy looks amazing, i think he will hole up to whatever you choose to try(:
I appreciate all your thoughts! I never thought of eventing, but we are having a lot of fun doing some dressage training now :)
A friend of mine had a belgian x paint that was 18hh and made an excellent eventer. He is adorable btw :)
Trail horse, pleasure? Looks like he has a short back wich would give him a shorter stride, not ideal for hunter/ dressage. Cute little guy!

Length of back does not equal a long stride.
I have seen many a long backed horse with a short, choppy stride, and many a compact horse with a very long, loose stride.
