Thanks tinyliny, that helps a ton. And yes peppyrox, they have like a bajillion horses for sale, so a few of the sentences they keep the same and just copy and paste I think. :)

He doesn't seem to be a super athletic jumper. Gymnastic exercises may help to tighten him up, but I don't think he has the scope to be, say, a winner over 3'6.  907
And now, the men of the Second Armored Division with their famous close-order swanning about.

I think the right owner for that horse is someone who trail rides.

Dragging up an old thread from the dead because I ended up buying this horse in 2010. I was searching the internet today to possibly find more info on him and stumbled on this thread.

"Fig", as I call him, is most likely a morgan or morgan cross. He has scope for 3'6" but that is probably the max. He was being jumped by me consistently at 3' but has had a break and we are starting back this year. He is a very forward horse, extremely smart and very sound. He has the best feet I've ever seen. He is very personable but can be dominant so we do groundwork occasionally. He moves 10x better than his sales video with proper dressage work. He has competed in novice eventing and IHSA and I plan to take him to some low jumper classes this year. Our only constraints right now are financial or we would be competing a lot more. This horse has taught me so much but it has been a long journey to where we are today.

He is very strong and athletic overall and incredibly sound (knock on wood) which surprises me a little. I would make his legs longer if I could as he is only 15 hands.
