HUS Prospect

This is Oliver aka Sweet Baby Blue. He is a 16.1-16.2 4 year old Appendix gelding out of Only Blue Sky. He has a decent amount of training for the flat. I know he is back at the knee and don't plan on jumping him at all. I was wondering what everyone thinks and sees conformation wise. These are from his ad before I bought him. Havent been able to go out and take more yet. But if needed I can! Thanks!

I think he's over at the knee, rather than back.

He is not back at the knee. He is over at the knee if anything. That is not a fault in a jumper.

Jump him. See how his form is over fences. He has a lot of power behind. He has a steep shoulder but high enough point of shoulder.. he might be quite pretty in the air.

His neck is weak and the tie in on top is low. He needs to be ridden back to frront and learn how to balance and collect (not surprising in a 4 year old).

I think he is quite nice over all as a package. Do try the jumping. He might make a nice hunter or equitation horse.

Would him being over at the knee restrict him in any way?

I think he's pretty darn nice! If he's over at the knee, it ain't much. His front right knee almost looks a tiny bit swollen, or perhaps it's just the photo. His back is long, but he has the long legs to go with it. I really like his hip angle and size and that his hocks are low and front canons short. In fact, other than that his neck is a bit short in comparison with the rest of him, I think he has excellent conformation. However, my knowledge base is not as wide as Elana's.

His neck will muscle out nicely in time. I think he's super handsome , and under oakbark colored tack he'd be stunning.

I love the line as well! He is a little on the mouthy side but is getting better. Quick learner, hard worker and a DREAM undersaddle. Has such a smooth rocking horse canter! Really good minded boy. I love him!

My Only Blue Sky is still mouthy. Think it runs in the family? ;)
