Would you buy this horse?
 
I'm not selling him. It might be a possibility in the near future.. So I figured I'd get some opinions from the HF Pros:-)

Stellar Moves (Moose) is a 17.3 2003 registered AQHA bay gelding out of Starman SL (by Artful Move). He has 200+ points in open, youth, novice youth, and novice amateur English events, and is Incentive Fund nominated (he has accumulated over 100$ in IF money in 2009). Moose is an in-your-pocket kind of horse with a million dollar personality. He is great with little kids, and anyone can ride him. Moose is the point-and-go jumper, automatic lead changes, spots, and gorgeous around the arena. Has the classic long, flowy stride and practically lopes down the lines. He is very forgiving, has the patience of a saint, and is your typical baby sitter. He shows normally in 2'9-3'6 classes, and has done well at the few hunter shows that he has gone to. Moose is extremely quite and broke, he goes straight from the jumper arena, to the hunter arena and does great in both. He has also dome some level 0 and level 1 grand prix at some schooling shows, and has won the level 0 out of 20 other horses, and got 6th out of 30 in the level one. He is the ULTIMATE equitation horse, both over fences and on the flat. Has all the assets, and performs them willingly and beautifully. He has been shown and ridden by very VERY beginner riders, and took care of them beautifully (we had a 9 year old little girl, very VERY short jump him 2'9 fences, he jumped everything perfectly, and was an angel). He would be great for any level of rider. He is willing, talented, and beautiful. He hauls like a dream, stands for the vet and farrier, and is the braider's dream. No fake tail needed, stands without crossties, and gets along great with other horses (he's extremely friendly!)

Some of Moose's accomplishments are:
-2010 All American Quarter Horse Congress Champion youth jumping (world's largest single-breed horse show)
-2010 All American Quarter Horse Congress Finalist novice youth hunter hack
-2010 Year End National Honor Roll Reserve Champion youth jumping, youth limited equitation over fences, and youth limited jumping
-Youth Performance ROM and Open Performance ROM
-Nationally qualified for the 2009-2011 AQHYA World Championship Show
-Multiple FQHA Year End High Point and Reserve High Point champion
-Multiple Circuit Champion
-2009 AQHYA World Show Top 20 Equitation Over Fences
-2009 AQHYA World Show Top 30 Working Hunter
-2009 Year End National Honor Roll 3rd Place Youth Jumping

Are you sure that he's 17.3hh? I'm not trying to be rude, but that's very unusual for a Quarter Horse. It's big for any horse for that matter.
Other than that, I think he's lovely :).

We put a stick on him, hes 17.3! Hes mostly TB though.. only his grandfather is full AQH. All of his other bloodlines are TB or Appendix.:-)

The AQH hunters are tending to be more tall these days:-P

I think he's gorgeous!
But it would be his temperment on the ground that would be a deciding factor, because thats really important to me. But his expression tells me hes a big sweetie so yes I think I would.

He is a MAJOR sweetheart. He's the kind who just wants to be touched. Whenever I stand in from of his stall, and I don't give him attention, he does things like shake his buckets or bob his head to get attention. And he always come up to anyone who walks up to his stall to say hello:-) He's very gentle with kids, and hes always a major favorite at summer camp! Kids were learning how to bridle on him!

Than he's perfect haha, I can't stand horses with nasty ground manners :)
But if you ever sold this horse, he'd be waayyy out of my price range anyway, but he seems like a great horse. :)
