    critique my guy?

    This is prince.
    Sex: gelding
    Age: unknown
    Breed: unknown

    We are hopefully going to event this season, but are currently just getting to know each other and lightly foxhunting. Anyways, please critique and if you want guess his breed?

    *his neck doesn't actually have a bump on it, its just where his mane sticks up.

    Thanks!

    He is cute but....
    His neck is long, does not seem to fit his proportions.
    Sturdy looking thing, but I am not a fan of the way his neck ties into his chest...its a little low.
    Needs some heal growth on the front feet and the back need a little, farrier needs to back him and stand him up.
    Other then that I do not see anything that screams at me.

    I would agree with the neck, altho it is really hard to tell with the mane going every which way. I am guessing maybe graft cross? Looks like some feathering going on, and with the sturdy build, that would be my guess there. I cannot believe age is totally unknown-seems to me you would at least have a range, like 5-10, 10-15.....something. Was he a rescue or something that you know so little? Shoot, mine is a PMU and we still know what cross he is.

    Back is a bit long and swayed. He needs HILL work or cavelletti to increase his abdominal strength to support his back. He is long backed. His neck is set low and is too long.. and over all he will have trouble balancing to the rear and working off his hindquarters. I expect he is heavy on the forehand.

    He has good bone and his shoulder is OK but the angle at the point of shoulder is not very open so he may not get his knees up over fences. His knees seem a bit offset and he stands close (looking at him front the front). He might interfere at the trot (probably not since his legs look clean.. but hairy LOL).

    He has nice bone and the hind leg looks like it might be a little straight. I like his low hocks.

    He will probably do OK in low level eventing.. low jumps and not a lot of dressage demands. It will be good for him and you will learn a lot on this horse.

    that was a really helpful critique, hill work is EXACTLY what we are doing, but he's actually not on the forehand at all(or so im told by the dressage riders at my barn) so its interesting you point that out!

    Thanks to everyone else also! Keep em' coming
