2 year old Solid APHA Gelding

Titan is my gelding I bought in July. These Pictures are from his first day home, and aren't the best angles...I'll have to get some better ones next time I have someone with me at the barn to take them. I'd like some third party opinions on his conformation, thanks!

I'm no expert, but I like him. He should muscle up well all around with work. Looks well put together.

Thanks DirtDee. He's halter bred, which put me off at first, but he moves athletically enough that we may just have a hunter/jumper on our hands....for the local levels at least.

I didn't pick him out as halter bred at first, but he does have really upright back pasterns and small hooves which are typical of halter bred horses. He isn't hugely bulky like some of the halter horses are (though he could thicken up as he gets older...he is YOUNG) which is a good thing given those feet. You'll want to make sure you never let him get overweight. He actually looks like he might be clubby on the back left leg too, though it could just be a bad trim. His hoof angles don't match so my best guess is just a bad trim...

He's really nice though, other than that. Very well put together for a two year old. Nice big hip, nice clean legs, and I like his back so far. His shoulder is a straighter than I'd prefer for a H/J because it may affect his scope, but I don't see why couldn't do local levels if he is brought around properly and given time. His face is really cute.

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

Endiku, thanks for the input. I did just realize that his hooves have had proper trims for the last few months, and his hoof angles are better, as I said, I'll try to get better photos very soon.

I like him. ALOT. He has a beautiful back/top line. His neck is set very nicely and has a natural arch to it. His croup make be a little steep...but that's if I'm being super picky. Might be a little too straight in his back legs...that's fairly typical of halter bred horses. And he is a little light on bone in the front, but bone substance in back legs looks adequate.

overall hes a nicely put together horse. Id Say he'll do well in hunter under saddle. Maybe hunter over fences depending on how he jumps. He is a nice looking 2 year old.
