    Has He Improved?

    This is my 6 year old appaloosa gelding, who I've owner since the fall of 2011. I've been trying to work him consistently and correctly, although there have been several months in the last year that he's either been on stall rest or I was unable to ride. Despite that, has he improved fitness and conformation wise?

    He's a very nice horse, and I think he looks a lot better! His underline is firmer, so his topline looks better, and his neck looks way more shapely. Good work!!

    Thank you! Is there any area in particular I should be working to build up? I've been doing lot's of long and low stretching to improve his topline which has paid off.

    What a pretty boy, he looks great

    Thanks! Sorry for asking so many questions, but does he look to have potential in low level jumpers? That's what I hope to do with him in a couple of years.

    Absolutely. He doesn't have any glaring terrible conformational issues and so long as he is sound, healthy, and enjoys it I don't think there is any reason he won't turn out to be a low level jumper.

    HUGE improvement! You can really see the muscle you have added in his hindquarters and topline, and his underline looks much more trim! Great job! Keep up the good work and keep building that topline! I think he would be an adorable little jumper!

    He is a bit "ripped" now, good job!
