    Feedback on OTTB

    I was looking for feedback on an OTTB for sale in my area. I know he isn't standing square, but I hope the pictures are at lease sufficient for a quick overview. Look like a good jumper/lower level eventer, or should I pass him up? I'm a bit blinded by his pretty color and gorgeous tail. D:
    Thank you. :)

    I would like to see better pictures, but he appears to be a very nice, balanced horse.

    He's butt-high, which gives him a swayed appearance.
    He needs more muscle and the angle of his shoulder is very steep.
    Apart from those obvious flaws, he looks like a handsome boy.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't most TBs supposed to be butt-high - they're bred that way. I read somewhere that they - ALL - are high in the rear, but most look like they aren't because of the high withers that is also a common trait... It was something about the butt-highness putting their weight further forward so that they could run faster.

    Anyways.. I stink at structural conformation critique, but that horse is a beauty... and I love his name!

    Thoroughbred considered.

    Shorter limbs, lovely sloped shoulder with extra length to blade and nice wither set. Back length OK. The croup is shorter. Nice even head carriage. Very strong deep girth. Touch longer rear and fore cannons. Super grey shading. Dressage the best go for this one, with some jumps OK. Sport horse buyers will like that forequarters. :)

    Never heard of Thoroughbreds being associated with being Butt high.

    Perhaps a mix up with the closely related QH.

    Many Quarter Horses are butt high, which provides them power to preform strong and powerful moves off their hind.
