The horse looks very strung out to me.....not collected at all. You can see at the trot how far apart his footfalls are between the front and back. It almost looks like he has a back right hip out of alignment or something funny going on in his back end. I also don't like how far out he sticks his nose....looks like he is stretching his body out from front to back. His stops are very heavy on the forehand, which really makes me think he is either out of alignment or has some health issues. Regarding his pace / cadence at the jog, I think it is great except for the points above. I would have him thoroughly checked out by a vet and chiropractor before buying and I personally think $8K is too high.

The video says he is sold; did you buy him?

Hey guys! We did buy him. Got his price down to 5,000. Because as you said ridehorses99 he was very unbalanced and he also had no straight lines at all ...he leaned left and then leaned right on you everytime. Just leaned on you every which way. He never picked up his shoulders. His trot was terrible. But as we know now it is all fixable. I have him in training 5 days a week with me and my trainer and he is a completely different horse. He is starting to pick up his shoulders and get a really nice cadence. We also had a horse chiropractor take a look at him when we did his vet check / pre purchase exam. Nothing was wrong. I will have to take a look at his video to see if I see what you see .. I will upload a new video soon :)

Also he has been getting in shape. He was pretty overweight..which he is getting fit now with his workouts . Thanks you so much everyone for the replies! Helped tremendously
