    I read that horse's who are post legged put extra stress on their hocks and stifles and their pasterns end up weakening.

    That doesn't mean she will. She isn't nearly as bad as some horses I've seen.

    What happens to any horse depends on how hard they are used and the after care they receive. If an owner cares for the horse properly by keeping the horse at a good weight, using propper conditioning, optimum nutrition, correct warm up and cool down, appropriate protection and excellent aftercare even a horse who is conformationally challanged horse can be kept sound even in hard work.

    Onthe other hand a horse with perfect conformation can be broken down by a non-caring owner in a matter of months.

    It is a combination of conformation, usage and care that will determine how sound any horse stays.
