I have had Justin since he was two, he's always sound (does wear front shoes since he jumps). He jumps anything, NEVER stops. Auto lead changes. He's great on trails alone or in a group and has fox hunted (only once, but was great!). Because his form is beautiful he's great in the hunter ring he's also very handy and can easily switch over to the jumper ring. He's had basic dressage training and could be a lower level dressage mount as well. Showed up to 2'9" schooled to 3'6". He can be forward at times so a rider who can be ok with that is a must.
