Arab/QH Cross Prospect
 
2 Attachment(s)
Wondering what you all think of this 18yo arab/QH cross gelding, 15.3hh? Western/English pleasure and trail riding.

sound? Working at 18? This is a really nicely put together horse and if he is working and sound at 18, he is a really good deal.

Nice English looking horse. Almost looks like a nice Thoroughbred.

According to the owner he is very healthy and sound. Am anxious to go see him this Saturday :-)

Why is it such a good deal that the horse is sound and working at 18? Iv seen plenty of horses older than that, that are sound and working...

I agree that he is really nice looking. only his front leg, left and lower part looks kind of oddly shaped. Might be angle of the photo., but look at that. The cannons are nice and short. I like his build. 18 is not old, especially for an Arab.

This horse would have been my ideal candidate when I was looking! (Well, except for the impossible-to-keep-clean white :wink: ). Pretty little arab neck/face, nice QH body minus the usual pesky pastern situation... and I wouldn't have guessed 18 from this picture! Basically, I wanted to say that I love him. :-) Let us know how it goes!

I think the odd angles are from standing on those stones! Impossible for the horse to lay a foot flat.

A lot of horses at age 18 are unsound or arthritic. If a horse is still going strong at 18 that says one or two of these things:
1.) horse never did anything
2.) horse was ridden correctly and not over used at a young age or any age
3.) horse has good conformation
4.) horse never had an accident

Nice horse this.

Ohhhh I like this one!!!

Loved him!!!:-) He was everything the owner said and looked as good as the pictures (just a bit fuzzier in the cooler temps). His feet all looked good, so I think the pic might have looked off the way he was standing. My trainer couldn't find anything that would not make him a great match for me.

That is one nice looking horse. Great Arab type for a half arab. Go for it IMO. Shalom
