Donnerschlag Son....before he was sold.

I thought I'd ask you all to crit my horse before I sold him last year.

Only thing I will say is he's out of Donnerschlag.
If you can guess age.. bonus points to you ;)
At this point, he was reasonably fit, and we were doing 2nd/3rd level dressage.

Best pics I could find on my system!

I'll give it a go, but I'm still learning. =) I'd rather still read!

I like how far back his withers fall into his back, so the saddle sits at a better center of balance. He has a decent coupling as well, with the decent placement of the LS joint.

He has a nice neck, but if I were to be picky, it could be set a teeney little bit higher, but still nice nonetheless.

The stifle placement is rather disappointing, considering the rest of the build, and combined with his hocks, the angle there is not quite right (a bit too straight, I suppose). It gives me the impression that this horse will have trouble with engagement, or at least, you'll really need to get on his case about it.

A nice horse altogether. =)

Thanks TF

Any guesses to his age? ;)

He did rather well in his dressage career, getting up to M dressage, which out here is two levels below PSG.. engagement wise he could do it very well, but you did have to get on his case- but I'm not sure I could say that was conformation (as I have no clue to it) or because it was just his disposition (grumpy bugger) and you had to really work for every little thing from him!

I'm going to guess older? Like 19-23ish? To me, he just exudes that "wise old man" vibe and coupled with the dips behind his shoulders + something about his backend/back just make me think he's older in the scale of things.

He looks like he was/is super sweet!!

19 ;)

He does have the old wise man vibe!

He's had disabled (mental& physical) adults ride him, kids of all ages, beginners, advanced riders, taught a few horrid riders a few things too muahaha

Doesn't look wuite as good now though :( But then I sold him as a happy hacker, and he's stil in the same box and I get to see him daily
