What I thought: His back doesn't seem too long (but now I'm second-guessing my judgement...), and I know it could use some muscling, but he hasn't been worked for over a year, so I'm confident that would come with time. He also seems a little downhill to me, which I know can often make it harder to engage the hindquarters. I had a few questions: Are his legs bowed inwards in the front? Is he too downhill to be successful in dressage (we're not talking grand-prix here, but at least lower to maybeee mid levels, in the event that we would get that far with him)?
Thanks in advance, I would really appreciate some input before I show him to my trainer! Any help is welcome!!!
