Now this horse looks slightly BACK at the knee to me. This is IMO a more serious fault as it leads to things like bowed tendons if the horse works at speed, over fences and so forth. This horse may be a little tied in at the knee as well, though I do not see the classic narrowing (an actual taper) from ffrom fetlock joint to just below the knee. Does he have a bowed tendon in his left front in the saddled photo?
I also see a prettynice shoulder, a bit long through the coupling, a bit steep inthe croup and a bit of over angulation in the hind legs and he has a light gaskin. Looks like he might have banged his right hind cannon at some point.
HOWEVER, this horse is really lovely. The root of his neck is quite high too and appears to be above his point of shoulder.
I would love to see some dressage miles on this horse. He looks like he might do quite well and dressage lightens the front end so any back at the knee concerns are less.
