Really nice pony. His hocks are a bit high and his neck is a bit short (where is that Thoroughbred ancestry when you need it? LOL). He has a nice coupling from these photos.. but he is also a bit fat. His croup angle seems good. He seems a little tied in behind the knee and his knees are a bit high.
He is not using his ring of muscles when being ridden. He is poking his nose out and hollowing his back. In the phot of him cantering and facking the left side of the page, he is on his forehand, has dropped his inside shoulder and is poking his head to the right.
He is being ridden front to back.. and that is partly due to his short neck. It is HARD for him to arch his neck and use his ring of muscles. He can do it, but he needs to be driven FORWARD and into the bit. He also needs lots and lots of trrotting up long hills on a loose rein so he learns to lower his head, extend his back muscles, use his abominal muscles (and build them). He will then be much better equipped to use his ring of muscles, raise the root of his neck and curl his hind quarters under him.
IMO he is a nice horse and worth the time it will take to get this.
