I personally, am not fond of his confo. He has nice coloring. His price isn't outrageous. He has multiple disciplines which is nice. His neck connects to his chest at a low point. He has a very long hip too.

I would get more critique from a more experienced critic. lol. :)

What are you planning on using him for?

I'm not too fond of his hips and his neck seems short to me, but I'm not great with conformation.

lakotalegend, I moved this to the critique section where you are likely to get more critiques from people. :)

I like his pattern, but there is too much white there for my taste (a lot to keep clean :) ). He is a good size, seems to have good exposure to various disciplines, good age. Others can give you a good conformation critique. I think if he has done all they say, and he has no soundness issues, the price is okay. I think he would at least be worth going to see and try out in person.

thanks, sorry i'm new!

yeah, i don't love his confor. i would be using him at a drassage barn, but i'm not even doing training level drasage. the most i would be doing with him is WTCG jump ( he can jump 2'5") and some lateral movement( down the road) trails etc..
i'm not goingto be doingn anything fancy with him.

but i wan tto know if his confor. is so bad that it will affect his everyday ride..

but i'm just not sure he's the one for me. i am having my teacher take a look,..

I think he's gorgeous, but to me the price is kinda high. But that's just me.

$3500 seems a bit much for a horse that isn't registered.

I really really don't like his croup. Waaaay too steep. His back is too short, and not a nice athletic-type short, more a just too-short back short. He looks to be a little straight-legged in the back as well.
I'd have to say he's a no-go. I really don't like his conformation.
I think you could find better for that price.
