    Id like to know if basically he's good looking. He's not clean and he's fuzzy lol. Does he look more of an english or western horse.? Also does anything seem odd to you? Like hocks or back or legs? Is he overweight?

    I think he'd look super in English tack, doing low level dressage or general showing. Stunning in colour, but I'm still learning at conformation.

    This horse has a nearly perfect hind leg. He has a nice shoulder and his neck is set on correctly (neither high nor low). He has plenty of bone and a correct rront leg (not tied in at the knee.. and straight). He has enough rear end to be able to drive him forward and he looks pretty level.

    His weakness is his LOOONG back.. and long coupling. This will make it difficult for him to collect and difficult for him to be scopey over jumps. He would benefit from lots of trotting on a long rein up long hills with his rider in a 2 point. This will need to be continued for his life and will vastly improve his ability to collect and use his "ring of muscles."

    Nice horse. Really.

    Thank you:) if only I could get him to extend his trot or learn to balance himself. He was just recently trained 30 days so I guess its just practice and time:)

    BTW I see him doing English.. probably dressage and some low level jumping. Maybe even eventing.

    Check this out. At 30 days he is just a kindergarten kid with a long way to 1st grade.

    What does 'on the bit' really mean?
