    Whoa those front feet REALLY need a trim O.o

    Hinds don't look too bad though... so is it a bad farrier?

    I haven't watched the video, but I quite like him based on the photos. Very short pasterns, and a more upright shoulder than is ideal in a dressage horse [that shoulder is better for jumping tbh] but being that he's essentially full draft [Friesians are light drafts, originally bred to carry knights into war then turned to harness and now being used as riding horses], the short pasterns and upright shoulder come as no suprise. I like his neck set, it's a nice medium IMO between the low-set draft neck and the high-set extremely upright Friesian neck.

    Typical draft hind end, in that I'm saying nice big hocks and a sloping croup. If he was lighter I would say he was made to jump - but a LOT of dressage people like a bit of jumping breeding in their dressage horses. All in all I see no reason why he couldn't do some dressage. He's not an FEI horse but he's certainly better built than my gelding [an eventer who is looking at retiring from jumping, he will be my dressage horse if I can't get him sound enough to jump again]. My gelding is only about First or Second-level at the moment, but I'm a beginner when it comes to dressage, so I don't know how much of that is me and how much of it is him.

    Well, the owner said that he needed his feet done, and he's had them done since these photos, so its all good. Lol
