Stands nice and square from the front in the last picture, nice straight legs, steep shoulder angle, I think he's a little posty behind but very nice short pasterns. Lovely shaped head. Would love to see a view from behind.
Does need more topline muscling as he has a very defined wither. How does his saddle fit?
How does he travel under saddle and in pasture?
He's beautiful :)
Yeah, he probably is undermuscled. We're working on that.
If I remember I'll try to get some pictures of his back legs. I just couldn't get his back legs square!
I'm actually shopping for a new saddle right now, his current one doesn't fit. It actually rests on his withers
I felt so bad because I didn't know anything about saddle fit so I didn't know anything was wrong with it. We had asked someone if they thought it looked okay back in the fall and they said yes. I felt horrible because I thought it was okay up until a month or two ago when I started thinking it didn't look right. How does he travel under saddle and in pasture?
I'm not 100% sure what you mean, like how smooth his gaits are? Sorry, novice horse owner here
Thank you for taking your time to respond!
