Now that horse I do like, I love the rhythm in the lope, I really like a clear distinction between fast and slow circles, seems to be handy and very responsive but showing his greeness at times. LOL my worry with a 3 year old at that level is how he will stand up long time, can't win here!

Carp, where are you? If you can find a teacher at 2500 then depending on shipping it would be cheaper to come down there and go shopping

His spins are tight but like GH said he really isn't setting his pivot foot. But from what I am understanding judges aren't as worried about that as long as the the pivot foot is staying in the same spot. They are looking for pretty spins with the head lower than what you see in the cow horse pen.
Whoot, I'm seeing something. This thread is really useful to help me look more critically at sale horses, and that is handy.
