Confo crit, my old pony

I sold this little guy early 2011, because I way outgrew him [he was only 12.1, I ride in a 17 1/2 inch saddle and simply do not fit in a saddle small enough for a pony that size any more].

He was an awesome little jumper, cleared 3' from a standstill on more than one occasion [I was never brave enough to point him at anything bigger, 3' was ENORMOUS next to him!]. I trained him to jump and he had a real dirty stop on him that I never could train out of him, so that happened on several occasions!! Also had really nice form 99% of the time but did like to hang his knees a little bit, I'm not sure if that was his confo or my fail-training [I didn't actually have a clue XD] or just my bad position at the time. This pony VERY rarely took rails and was a careful, clean, scopey little jumper.

Anyway, these are the best I have of him, and I can't get more because I don't actually know where he's at now. Little guy came to us with HORRIBLE chronic laminitis, one hoof was actually convex [indicating possible severe rotation]. Over the 18 months we had him, his feet went from absolutely horrible to absolutely perfect, but unfortunately when we sold him his feet went back into the care of the person [I REFUSE to call him a farrier] who was responsible for the chronic laminitis in the first place and I don't know what happened from there...

He's purebred but not registered, Welsh section B, so if he could be critiqued as a Welshie that would be fantastic :)

Please excuse my absolutely horrible position in the over fences pics, it was a long time ago. The first o/f pic is of the little fattie with what I consider nice form, and the second, he hung his knees a wee bit. Fences were between 2' and 2'6 that day. And yes, even then I was tall on him!

Cute little fellow ;)
He has a very upright shoulder and his neck is set high
Looks as though he has sturdy little front legs
Back is borderline long for his stature
Steep slope to the croup but I like his hunky hindquarters
Hard to judge the back legs 100% without him standing square, but nothing severe is presenting itself so no worries there ;)
Pasterns are a bit short but apart from that he's a fairly sturdy looking guy

Thanks :) **** I miss him, he was so naughty haha and certainly not perfect but that pony put up with so much.

He did have quite a short, choppy stride, which I assume is the upright shoulder and short pasterns. Not a dressage pony that's for sure. He could float sometimes but he was never going to have big extensions.

I want another one of him <3 one that's a wee bit bigger, like 14hh-ish, or just him back to have as a harness pony. I absolutely HATE greys so that's saying a lot!
