Alright, so I'm searching for a horse to do lower level eventing and I found this guy. He's a 4 year old, 15h, registered thoroughbred gelding. He's up for sale because they were hoping for a larger horse but he's not going to cut it for them. He hasn't been started under saddle but he does accept tack and he'll lounge. She said he enjoys working in the arena. She has sat on him and he didn't mind. He's a sweet horse and they're looking for him a good home. Anyway, I wanted some opinions on his conformation because I'm not the greatest at it. I know these pictures aren't the best for it but they're all I have until I decide I want to go look at him.
He is standing on uneven ground, but he gives the impression that he could be a tad high in the wither, which is quite common for TB's.
Shoulder angle is a little steep and he is over at the knee.
Hard to say about the back end but it doesnt look too bad. Same goes for the hind legs.

This TB screams constant lameness issues to me his front legs are awful!
and its a shame because the rest of him looks nice.
Definately not a eventer prospect. Your going to have issues. Keep looking.
whats your price range and what state are you in?
