Question 3y/o Rescue standy Confo Crit!

So this is my managers new horses

He was going to the doggers unless otherwise saved, she got offered, she took him.

What do you think of him? Being 3 i believe there is room for growth.

He raced prior maybe 1 week ago an was deemed to slow on his 3rd try.

She wants to just pleasure ride with him, but being unbroken she'll have fun aha.

I don't know Standardbreds, but as an overall functional horse, I really like him.

Very well put together Standie.

This horse is not "unbroken". If he has been raced, he has been broke, just not to ride. It is often fairly easy to rehab a Standie, because they already have had a lot of work done with them.

you reckon? His back appears very flat to me, but i don't know standys general conformation haha :)

Yeah well being a beginner rider, is why i see it being interesting.. To me he is like unbroken because he hasn't been saddle before with the weight of a rider and then ridden, he may be broken to jig.

pretty typical standardbred imo. good knees. long straight back, upright shoulder, long cannons. all in all a functional citizen that should do well in the lower levels of any discipline.
