Critique Ace

Here is my horse, an 8 year old 15.3 hand Quarter horse gelding. He does hunter under saddle, and a little bit of western pleasure and jumping.
This picture does not do him justice, but it's what I had of him standing nicely.

Here is a front view.
His feet were long here, he was due for the farrier.

I love Everything about him. May be just a tad butt high with long pasterns.

My horse's feet are as swift as rolling thunder He carries me away from all my fears And when the world threatens to fall asunder His mane is there to wipe away my tears.

Like red said, butt high, maybe a tad steep in the crop, and it looks like he toes out just a bit on his right fore.

Overall, I like him. He has a nice shoulder and love the way his neck ties in. Very nice horse.

He's a little tinsy bit toed out in the front, his topline could be more developed but looks pretty good.

His front pastern/shoulder angles aren't the same but the back pastern/shoulder angle is.. which is interesting. I like his hip, he is a bit butt high.. nicely muscled neck, may be pigeon breasted.

(I'm just practicing since I'm new to this)

All of that aside, I like him. He seems really sweet and probably a pretty good mover in the hunters ring :)

Cute face! Aside from other things mentioned, he is a little narrow in the chest for my liking. However, he does not seem knock-kneed or the like, so it probably does not affect him.

I have said what I have said. I have not said what I have not said.

He's a little narrow in the chest for my taste in quarter horses, but hey - everyone has their own likes and dislikes. But, that aside, he's a very nice horse, and I simply agree with the majority of what was said before me. However, a lot of QHs that I've known were a little high in the rump, so don't stress about that. :P
