He is either that YUK that you are being polite, or that awesome that you are stuck dumb

Personally I see a nice horse with a couple of faults, I'd love to hear someone elses view

I like him, GH.

Nice looking boy, and I'd have thought he was a purebred Arab if his owner hadn't noted his breeding.

Is he registered with AHA as a Half Arabian? I certainly hope so, as he's a well put together animal.

I definitely like the way he moves, although you can tell he's a greenie.

As long as you can untrain the 'stupid pet tricks' out of him, I think he'd make a fine prospect.

What kind of prospect, GH?
I know it is just a photo, but the one at 0:16 makes his hind end look a little wonky. Anyways... He's cute. Doesn't make me jump out of my seat screaming "get him!!" but he's cute. Not a big mover, and that back has to round up. Very behind the vertical and hollow through the back in the first photo.

I would love to find another fun horse to do low level dressage on. This guy I think is a great deal just now, but I need to sell some horses before I could take another in.

I don't see him as yuck but I personally don't find him as awesome. :)

He's neat little guy, though.

I agree, we need to know what kind of prospect! :)

I think he's a nice looking boy, the type that could do just about anything.. He would just be mediocre at it all.

He is a pretty boy Golden and he seems to have a beautiful nature however I do have some concerns with his hindquarters. His hip angles are weak and as a result he really struggles to reach under himself.

Whilst this may be improved somewhat with training, I don't think he will ever have enough reach and strength in his HQ even for low level dressage, just tracking up at all will be tough for him. If there is one movement you will really win/lose on a low level test on it will be the quality of your walk and in particular the free walk, this boy will let you down in that regard.

I would keep looking, I like the last mare you posted better.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.
