    Critique My Gelding?

    Hey everyone! This is my TB gelding, Jett. I asked for a crit back in June but I didnt get too many replies and he's been worked a lot more lately, so I thought I'd try again. He's going to be 14 in a couple weeks, and he is 16.1 hh. He's currently in training to be sold...I've been thinking he's a bad boy but really he just needs to be ridden conistently. Then he actually gets kinda lazy! So I'm thinking I could sell/give him to a riding school where he will be ridden everyday & get the attention he deserves! He's been pretty willing to jump. He's started some poles and crossrails. Just wondering what everyone thought of him! Thanks! :)

    Found some pictures of him when he was a racehorse! So this is him when he's REALLY fit! Haha :) (Age 8)

    I don't know a lot about giving critique but it seems his hindquaters look very small compared to his girth which looks prety big.

    He has a very nice looking face though :)

    Very high hocks and post legged. Superior heartgirth. Long pasterns, but a decent forearm. His hind end is weakness. His front end is his strength. Attractive horse.

    He's wasp-waisted

    Adorable boy(:

    He is pretty. His hind end is too small compared to the rest of him. He's lost muscle mass from his hock up into the hip going from his racing days to now but a lot of times age will get the best of them all more so when they've been raced. I've had 2 ex race horses so definitely have experienced that.

    Thanks for all the input everyone. Heh he is a pretty boy(: Nothing horrible that will limit him in anything do you think?

    I don't personally think it will limit him at all with the right conditioning.
