I just purchased an arabian gelding with a temprement of gold and I'm starting him under saddle.
I was aware when I bought him that he didn't have the best neck in the world BUT I'am now concerned that he may have a ewe or swan neck hmmm.
Coz I'am starting him under saddle I have knocked his feed back as the feed was heating him up and making it hard to work him, hence he has lost a lil weight and now I can see quite a dip before his wither :(
He does not appear to have a hammerhead although he does have over developed muscles under his neck. I'm not having major issues getting his head down with side reins although he does prefer to carry his head high and does not appear to hollow out and tracks beautifully :)
Please would like some opinions, Thanks heaps :)
The first 2 pics are when I 1st got him and the rest are since he has dropped a lil weight :)
