Do you have any pictures of him moving or being ridden? it would help a lot. Also that bit looks really.... like something lol. Why does he need that one.... almost looks dressageish but I wont Lie I don't know a lot about dressage lol.

Its just a straight bar pelham.:o He would probably be shown in a pelham.i was tring it to see if hed like it or not.I normaly ride him in a snaffle, however he does lean badly in the snaffle and can be a little strong specialy for other half so we are thinking of getting him a kimblewich as neither of us personaly like dutch gags.:rolleyes:
i do have some ridden pics but they are of other half who is a noivce so no critic on the rider please plus i took themto show him he was pointing toes down as he got funny with me saying they wernt:D;).horse does work round but obviously rider not got that far yet!!

How tall is he?
I think with some decent muscle on him, he could make a pretty good hunter.
But that's coming from a novice when it comes to showing :o
He's gorgeous though :)

ahh thanks sammii hes 15.3hh think he should be pretty bulky with a bit more muscle!

Yes, definitely would come across to me as a great potential hunter type. :) He's gorgeous (I shall say it again :p)
ETA: Another class you could also probably take him in would be Riding Club Horse...which, at my local show, consists of an individual show and then going over a jump no bigger than 2ft6. Obviously this would depend on whether you and him jump or not. But it's another possibility :)

iv been told hes hunted!yet to do anything over 2'3 as he is rather laid back!!
it took alot of effort to even get that far!!

I think he might make a better riding horse than a hunter, but at local level people tend to do both. Either way, if you can get him measured down to 15.2 you'll be in the small hunter/riding horse class if you venture above local level, as opposed to dwarfed with the really big boys.
