How is his coupling? or a general eval....

I think I'm better understanding the weak/strong coupling idea.
His lumbosacral junction seems fairly close to the points of the hip, as in a shallow triangle. His back is roached, though not alot, I think.

He is 17 years old, TB, and fairly new to me (just 2 months). He had evented previously, and I am into riding for pleasure/handy horse/flat/trail/some jumping.

Looks to have a "hunter's bump" at the coupling. Needs groceries.

Good bone, nice shoulder, Hard to say anything else as the photographer is too far behind the horse for any discussion of the hind quarters.

here's another pic, hopefully the contrast isn't too dark...odd how his withers seem to be sharper in some angles.

He's over at the knee. As for the back, I was gonna say a jumper's jump for the first picture, then a full out roach back for the second...and then the third it almost seems like it disappeared....o_O

He definitely has a shark fin wither. Not gonna win any beauty contests, but he has a heart on his nose...and that makes him adorable <3

I used to be so much better at conformation before I stopped caring

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music

Shark fin wither. Yep. Rode him bareback for the first time in a lesson, trying to get a 'feel' for how the hind was in movement. Ouch on my crotch!
He is a heart horse that other heart on his nose!
