See the saddle scars? The white flashes of hair indicate the nerves have died. This is likely the result of having to cinch too tight to keep the saddle from crawling up onto his shoulder blades. A rump high horse can make the rider feel pitched forward. Being a saddlemaker, I don't recommend this type of conformation. If you still go ahead and buy this horse, I strongly recommend you get mule breeching, sometimes called spider breeching which through a number of straps around the horse's hips spread the pull of holding the saddle from crawling forward.

They're still looking clubbed to me, but they also appear to be poorly cared for. They're much too long, which is probably giving off the illusion of his feet being even worse than they are. I'm no hoof expert but it looks to me lik he needs a goot 1/2 inch or more taken off, and maybe some corrective shoes or special trimming.

I think he's just standing funny and in a hole, resting his R hind. I also think his long feet just accentuate the funny posture. If he rides well, is super gentle, and you are just looking for a trail horse GRAB him! His color is great, he has NICE dapples which indicate good nutrition, I personally love his nice large rear end, his legs and feet are nice and sturdy, I think he's a decent QH. Better than is commonly sold/bred. If he dosen't have papers he's a great grade, I'd snap him up for a trail horse. What do they have him priced at?

He looks like an Andalusion QH cross. That would be an odd cross, however. The thick tail and body really scream Andalusion to me.

I agree with Kevin and Flygap. He looks to me like a pretty nice specimen of a quarter horse. He's not perfect, but no horse is. He's not nearly so downhill as he looks because his front end is standing in a hole. His feet need quite a bit of work to begin to look good, but so long as he is sound now, he likely won't be crippled between now and the time it takes for a good farrier to get him back into shape. The most important thing I notice about his feet and legs is that they are substantial. Most of the QHs being bred these days have little chicken legs and dinky little pony feet. This guy certainly doesn't. If he is gentle, rides nice, and vets sound, I would snatch him up in a heartbeat.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
