    Finally got a reasonable conformation pic

    I've already posted about Stitch's conformation. But my pictures weren't on even ground, and at funny angles. He is absolutely filthy, but this is as close to square as I've seen him.
    So thoughts?

    I use him for English and western. Particularly cow stuff and hunter/jumper

    His shoulder angle is ok, though I would personally prefer more depth through the chest
    Neck is undermuscled
    Short cannons and long pasterns with too much slope
    Back is long
    He is bum high (assuming he is indeed on level ground)
    I do rather like his hindquarters though
    As for his back legs, I would say he is a case of both posty-legs and slightly sickled-hocks

    We are working on the neck muscles. Thanks for your reply! I never thought his back was long, but ya learn something new everyday!

    Well the ground may be a little hilly. He was sort of in a mud puddle

    Agree with what has been said above. Although I will add that his neck ties in a little low. I think his croup is a bit steep, though I do like how much bone he has.

    I like this horse. Yes, his back IS long. But his shoulder is angled nicely for a pleasure horse. Neck ties in normally, to my eye. A tiny bit of sickle hock, but SO many QH's look that way. Great bone, short canons, somewhat upright pasturns, but not too long to me, plenty of hoof.
    he looks sturdy and functional.
    GotaDunQH and Yogiwick like this.

    Thanks! He's a good boy, who's great at what he does. :)

    Agree with Tiny...and want to add that I LOVE his low hock set and they are roomy....HAVE to love that, and quite frankly....some of the best I've seen on this forum.

    Thank you!
    Now I have this picture too, and he doesn't seem to have a long back in this picture.

    Is it camera angle, perhaps?
