    Does this horse have the potential to show at breed (AQHA) shows? In the hunt seat and pleasure.

    I personally say yes. Any video of the canter?

    Cute mover. Not a world beater trot, but I love the consistency.

    If he had a bit more oomph and forward at the trot, I think I'd like him more. And yes, definitely need to see the canter. But I like what I was seeing towards the end of the video once he was moving out more.

    I'd like to see his hocks under him more. He's just a tad strung out.

    He's pretty consistent though, and that's important. Nice cadence.

    He would work for the smaller AQHA shows in novice and rookie. Looks more like a western mover. He is consistent at least in the trot. Would like to see the lope though too.

    Like the others said....he needs more trot/extension. Do you have a canter vid? He's cute and I think he'll be fine in the Level 1 )Novice) classes.

    He will be perfect for rookie/novice. Looks quiet and like he knows his job.
