Still have some work to do though, I wish I had more hills right by my barn :( I mostly do lots of transistion work right now.

    I should get a video of his movement, he actually doesnt wing out at all, he has beautiful gaits. As long as I put his easyboots on he moves great, my trainer has always been really impressed with him.

    So nice to hear that my guy looks good though :) I got him super cheap because he was a bucker since he was out of work for so long, and I've done a lot of work to get him here!
    Your welcome, I love conformation critique's. I have no idea about how to get his forearms muscled. I only say what I think, I am so interested in conformation, I think it is fantastic when some one buys a horse with good conformation as I think that it can allow a horse to be able to have a longer riding life and excel more when being ridden for its owner. Fantastic that he moves nicely . I love having some knowledge to be able to judge a horse and I just love and condone people to buy well made horses.

    You need to ride him without the boots and perhaps be mindful of the terrain. His feet won't toughen if not exposed to various conditions. Pack your boots along if he gets sore.

    I'll try to start doing that. He's never stalled so walks around the barn all the time and we have a few different terrains around the barn. I was thinking about starting to hand walk him up the road a few times a week to help toughen up his hooves too. Our trails are just covered in gravel so I'd feel bad taking him on those without his boots until I know he can be comfortable.
