    Exclamation 2011 OTSTB gelding - potential jumper?

    I'm looking at this boy. I would like to do jumping with him. Would like to know opinions on his conformation? The vet is coming out later today for a pre-purchase exam. These are the best pictures I can get.

    Sorry I'm not entirely sure how to link images...but you can click the icons I think? You can just look through his entire album I guess. If it doesn't work let me know

    Okay, not great pictures for a critique because he is rolling in some and wearing a blanket in others. He looks pretty solid to me, I am not sure if his shoulder is angled a lot. Sometimes you are not supposed to link to FB so I am not sure if the pictures will stay up for long. My only concern and I know not that much about conformation is that he might interfere in front and need bell boots. Just the one photo his back seems to come awful close to his front and I wonder if asked to extend if he would be knocking himself. This would explain why he was not raced, a horse knocking himself would lead to him going off stride.

    Yea, I know :( but it's the best I have. He does look solid, and in good body condition. I think he may be awkward because he's coming 3 and 16hh. But, we'll see what the vet says.

    I like him a lot :) he looks sturdy and has a really sweet face and nice soft eye to boot - I bet he's a very sweet horse in person and loves people - his eyes remind me of my gelding :) Other than that - really hard to judge conformation from those pictures..

    I really noticed how sweet his face is too! And a kind eye. Apparently he has a "puppy dog" personality.

    I know the photos are hard to critique :( but, he does look solid.

    Please do let us know how the vet check goes and if you bring him home post more pictures of your own :) He looks like a very handsome steed.

    I was able to see the photos by clicking on the boxes
    Afraid they aren't good enough to give a critique of any sort
    If you're looking for something specifically to jump then aptitude is as important as conformation though - it can be a perfect horse but if it doesn't want to jump then its not going to be worth taking on. You should at least see it lunged or loose jumped over some fences before you make a decision
