12 year old Arabian critique [BIG pictures]

Hi! I just wanted a critique of my new arabian, Diamond. He's a sweetie. We had a problem today, but he was perfect otherwise.











And just because it's cute:

If the peak of this mare's croup were farther forward.. I would really like her (and I am NOT an Arabian person). Her coupling is long and weak.. but she is nice otherwise.

Thank you! Is there a way to make the coupling less weak, or is it just going to be like that? And can you think of anything he might be good at doing? He looks very pretty when he moves, but he has bad balance on the lunge line and leans too far inside. My instructor says he collects himself really well though.

They are not perfect photos for a good conformation critique but from what I can see he's a fairly well put together horse. I do agree with Elana that his point of croup should be farther forward, as it makes his hindquarters appear quite small & lean in comparison with the rest of his body.

Thank you! I will go out tomorrow and try to take some better pictures of him tomorrow. Can you think of any discipline or anything he'd be good at?

Get you an endurance saddle and ride the snot out of him, that looks like a nice sturdy endurance horse. How tall is he ? Some hill and speed work will get him in shape.

He is 14.2 - 14.3 hands. I actually do kind of want to do endurance. It sounds really fun! He's pretty fast too so maybe he'd be good at it. The palomino quarab in some of the pictures is faster though lol.

Oh, and one conformation unrelated thing: he has white hairs in his coat. He is 12 years old and I didn't know if he was greying or what. Or if that's just how his coat is?

That's just how he is. If he was not going grey by now, he won't go grey. And he definitely isn't.

Go to AERC and click on the ride calander and see what rides are in your area, then go to the main website read the rule book and all the other info. A mentor in your area will help get you through a couple LD's (Limited Distance). An LD is usually 25 miles, while endurance is 50 and over. Most people use an LD to get a feel for the sport and the procedures as well as horse conditioning. I love that Arabian of yours. So many of them are the dainty looking show lines. Whats his pedigree ?
