    Question about Morgans

    Some of you sound like you know a lot about Morgans, so maybe you can help me. I am looking at Morgan that I'd like to use for dressage.

    In the videos, everything looked great- nice movement and conformation for dressage and staying on the bit well. When I went to see, the first thing I noticed was that he had no chest-- just looked like two legs joined in front.

    He's only 5 years old, however. I'm not used to this 'light body' style as I don't normally ride this breed. Is this normal/okay? He moves very nicely & has a super nice temperament, so don't want to give up on him over this conformation 'issue.'

    Are there certain styles of Morgan that are just like this? He's not very 'Arab' looking, more solid with a cresty neck and he's 15.3 hands and fairly leggy.

    Thanks for any input!

    Does he look kind of like this? If so, he would be more of the new style Morgans, not really my favorite kind. Look at my earlier post on page 2. He might work for you though, go ahead and try him out. If he can do everything you will want him to do, I would say buy him.

    I wouldn't say he looks too much like this. He doesn't carry his neck/head high like this, his tail isn't set as high as this, and his ears don't have that 'Arab' look.

    His neck is 'deep' (set both low and high I guess might be another way to say this) and is also very cresty.

    I looked at a clip on you tube of a Morgan show saddle seat class and I can say that he does not move like that at all (the high knee action). He moves much more 'regular' than that.

    I haven't been able to ride him myself yet, but he seems like he uses his back (vs. being a 'leg mover').

    Thanks for your help. I'm hoping to try him this week.

    Ebrides - do you have a pic of the Morgan you're going to see? I know of quite a few Morgans for sale in the PNW, if that's the breed you're after. I currently show in dressage and Hunter Pleasure with mine - we've done quite well in both this year, they are such a versatile and willing breed.
