I would say that he is for an experienced rider only. After all, they kept emphasizing the importance of the person. Whether it is because he is so athletic, been raced on those cross country rides, gets hot on the trail (so much fun when your horse decides it wants to race on the trail LOL) or for some other reason they do not list, they don't say. But if he is needing a job and needs regular riding, he cannot sit around looking pretty and stay just as good as when he was last taken out for a ride.

And the "loves to work-move cows (not a cutting horse)" probably means that he is great for cattle drives, moving a herd, but not so much cutting out one from the herd

Smrobs, it just looks like he chipped in. Not the best picture for an ad, but I highly doubt he jumps like that all the time.

Ohhh boy... Do you think they are breeding for meat there, or just like to churn out random horses in the hopes that one turns a profit?

I'm thinking they think they are going to breed a champion. Alot of people don't have the logic to think that if they are being given a free mare.. good studs aren't using them, so basically the mare is going to produce a horse slower than a turtle. I have to go through sales catalogues for work.. you would be amazed the number of horses that have no winners in the first, second OR third dam.

I do wish there was a way of restricting breeding, it would cut down on the number of "rubbish" horses being bred, which would cut down in the number of horses being left starving in fields or those being slaughtered.

I don't think they are breeding for meat, for a good while here you weren't even getting money for horses anymore since so many were being sent. Due to the recession there are horses left everywhere and nobody paying for them so the knackeries weren't paying since the mentality came around that they were "taking the horse off somebody's hands"
