Woa, he looks almost exactly identical to a black morgan that use to trail ride with us. Talk about an easy keeper. I lovvveeeee this type of morgan and wish I would see more around.

Ohh, that makes sense. Why? Do you have a horse like him?

I've found that even though conformation plays a key role in certain disciplines, it doesn't make determine it completely. My Bob is downhill, sickhocked, and has long pasterns, but is still an accomplished and award winning all around horse. I think if you point this guy in a direction, try everything in sight, and see what works best...Gorgeous guy BTW.

That's awesome! And thanks, I agree, he's really cute!! Also, I Endurance Ride him, and I want to be an FEI rider, and do really well. But everyone says that he'll never make it, and that he won't be able to handle it. But I hate it when people just give up on something. And Bubbles is my favourite horse, so I'd like to FEI him in endurance. We just didn't have a good season this year, so I'm a little discouraged. But I am going to keep trying and working to get me and him there. Cause I want to prove everyone wrong. And besides, I would be so proud and happy if me and Bubbles were really good at top level endurance, and he's a Morgan. Beating the Arabs. Plus, if you don't try you'll never know! His heavy muscle does worry me though.

It's not the summer or winter thing, it's that the horse needs to be squared up on hard, level ground. Take shots from both sides, front and rear (with tail pulled to the side) That;s what makes good confo critique shots.

I think he is super adorable! But he isn't something I'd pick for barrel racing. If your not wanting something super serious and he likes it then he may not be too bad. Depends on what level your at in barrel racing. I don't know a lot about Morgan's but aren't they gaited? If he's gaited I know a lot of gaited horses can have weaker joints. I had one I had to do a lot of trot and hill work cause he would constantly be stifled so we had to do a lot of strength training. Anyways I'm not sure if those joints would hold up well in barrel racing. And usually you want to ride something with a lil longer neck and big powerful hind quarters cause that's where your horses engine is and you want fast movements and quick propulsion. But anyways he is super cute I wish there more Morgan's like him instead of the Arab crossed one I like the big stocky ones better personally. And I love his coloring and dapples.
