    You don't sound as if you have taken any anatomy and physiology, but one of the things you might want to do is do a google search on the biomechanics of horses jumping - there are a ton of articles out there, some technical, and some written in everyday language. Not only might this illustrate and quantify for you the stress a horse undergoes when jumping, but it is really a good education for all of us to see what we put our horses' bodies through when we use them to our purpose...

    DraftXDressage, I completely agree. You can't critique without taking into consideration exertion, such as breed, height, age, conformation flaws, training flaws, ANYTHING. His flaw is his roach back, which most obviously causes him pain, but if you have always seen him that way you may not notice it. We're not being rude or anything, we just want what's best for you and cowboy.

    "A minor roach"?

    Honestly, looking at Cowboy's back makes me sick to my stomach. It makes me cringe.

    That's all I have to say.

    Agreed.
    And not to mention you posted this in the Horse Conformation Critique section. As in you want us to critque his conformation. His roach is a major conformation flaw that needs to be addressed. If you didnt want a critique on his conformation, don't post here then.

    You got the opinions you asked for.

    This is a forum. If you don't want to hear what others have to say, DON'T POST ANYTHING.

    Well it's my opinion that he is in pain, so what's the issue?

    Thank you, GH. Our opinions are based on what's of the best interest of the horse. Why post if you're not willing to listen to those opinons? We're all on here to gain more knowledge and hear others opinions on things. Lubylol, we've all pointed out how willing Cowboy is and the fact that he seems like a great horse. Is that not something positive? We've all just concerned with the fact that he does not look comfortable jumping. Eventually we all have to face putting our horses' needs before our needs or wants--and your horse needs to not be jumping.

    Amp, I think the OP bailed, which is such a shame.

    Cowboy shows as well every indication of being a beautiful soul, a loyal friend and a level headed partner, and such things are beyond price.

    IF you were showing pics of him being used in a walk trot situation, if he belonged to an older, small frail person who wanted a level headed trail mount, we would all say, good on both of them. As a lead rein mount to let little kiddies have their first safe walks on a good old horse, then once again a perfect match.

    What is frustrating is that you are lucky beyond all belief to have one of the kind souls of the horse world, and you choose to take advantage of that nature, rather than looking at HIM and saying what is best for HIM.

    Believe me, whatever anger and frustration that you feel reading our responses, is magnified may times at this end, where so many people just truly don't understand why you don't get it.
