This is also called 'bum high' and alot of horses are actually bum high especially when they are young. How old is yours? My APHA mare was quite bum high when I got her at 3 yrs her bum was 15.1 and her wither was 14.3 but now at 4 her wither is catching up she's just about 15hh but still bum high and I do all kinds of stuff with her trail, liberty, bareback, agility, obstacles even jumping...jumps are small now because she's not finished growing but she is a great jumper and can really launch herself because of those powerful haunches. Don't listen to people to try to limit your horse's ability because of his bumhighness. Here where I am most people are into dressage and have uphill warmbloods and they are apauled at 'downhill' horses but guess what? Most of them get beat by bumhigh horses lol I actually used to do eventing with this very bumhigh QH he was awesome and we jumped 4ft high bareback with no troubles I personally like to ride bareback and all my horses have been a tad bum high. Don't worry about it it's barely noticible. Check out my mare can you even tell?

By the way I love your buckskin! Beautiful in the dressage ring and the jumping ring!

Hoofprints, thank you and you have a beautiful buckskin! I have a dun gelding and just love him. In the first pic with you beside him, I cannot see that he (or she) is downhill. Thanks FTFOTB for the info, I will keep all your comments in mind.

Thanks sky! :)

And garlic thank you and yes she is def.built downhill although in that first shot she was kind of at an angle so she almost looks level ;) she had her head up too, usually it's long and low which also contributes!

To Ride, you also have a beautiful horse, Hoofprints this is funny but I didn't realize you were one in the same as my Eclipse buddy! Ha ha, I need to learn how to post pic's I feel left out I can't post my boy Dillon whom is Not downhill and he just turned 6 in April. My hubby and I are looking at horses and there is a dun on the border of Oh and Indiana (Decator) whom is for sale but in the pic he is downhill and I asked if he was on level ground and she said no, but it is pretty pronounced. So just wonder if we should go look. Thanks you both! I am spending too much time on this computer lately surfing horses for sale and now this trailer stuff!!
