Not sure what type of horse this is?

I am trying to buy my first horse for my farm. He is 8 yrs old and I test rode him today and he rides fine. Little attitude to his steps, but I like a horse with spirit. Any thought on what type of horse he is? Thanks for the responses. CD

Welcome to the horse forum!

I would ask the people who had him for sale, but he looks like a Paso Fino to me. What country are you in?

I am in Ecuador along the coast. The owner is saying Arabian with English. But Arabian are bigger and trots a bit like a paso fino. Tomorrow I will test ride him again to see if he loosens up and shows me his real footwork.

4 legged pony variety. Well he looks small, short backed & a bit chunky anyway. Got a bit of an araby look about his head, and 'English' what? That's not a breed, so he could be x with a pony or anything. Arabs are x'd with all sorts, and typically not big horses.

Have no idea about you, or how big he is in reality, but do consider the shortness of his back as well as his overall size, considering how big you & your saddle will need to be - eg. a decent size western saddle(bearing surface of these is longer than English saddle) & regular size adult butt may be unsuitable...

I don't know the type, but it's a nice looking horse; good bone and in good health.

Thanks for the response. I am 5'7 165lbs so should be fine. I will measure his height this morning.
