I found him while browsing through adoptable horse online today;

He sorta sparked my interest so I was wondering, do you think he has the right kind of build/movement for the hunter ring?

I think he's quite cute but not for a hunter, especially since they said he's gaited

Not a hunter. Especially because of his short, choppy strides with his back end. Hunters are expected to step up fluidly with their hind legs.

He appears to be very small with a very short step. Does not appear he will be able to get the correct number of strides in hunter lines. He also appears to be lame behind in the video.
