The pictures are not the greatest so it is hard to give a good critique. Overall, I don't see any glaring huge issues.

The only thing that seems "off" to me are that his lower hind leg seems to be set under him, instead of straight. The hind legs are also slightly cow-hocked-looking.

I don't see anything wrong with his ribcage depth.

On a side note, I'd caution you against riding barefoot in a saddle. It's very easy for a foot to slip all the way through a stirrup. The heel on a riding boot has its purpose. If you are going to ride barefoot, then don't use the stirrups.

Not a bad looking horse at all!

Thank you Beau... And while when I was younger I did dumb things like ride barefoot, and worse. That was just a summer or so back and only for camra purposes.... My mom wanted the pic for something she was doing and he's normaly very solid so the visks seemed ok =) I know he's not perfect... and his legs have always been our main issue. But soul's discription of what he may be used for was just way off

He's stunning!

My only thought would be that in a couple pictures he looks like he's over in the knee and has some funky pastern angles in his back feet, as well as some mild sickle hocks. Also a tad low tied in the neck. Nothing horribly wrong and he looks built to last, the only thing that seems really off are those knees.. especially in the picture where you are on him in the saddle.

I didn't mean to be rude at all , you wanted an honest critique so I did my best to find anything "wrong" about the horse. The bright sides had been noticed by the others and, of course, it's a nice horse with great musculature on both front and hind whitch is important for a barrel sprinter - wish my mare had a quarters like that .

He looks like a barrel horse! Very pretty and stout, nice bone structure, perfect cross. Toes look a bit long in the last picture, but im sure he has had a trim :)

gelding, quarterhorse
