Sooo I've posted a thread the other day about my first horse. I've been riding for about 9 years and am ready to purchase my first horse! I'm only going to be doing some light riding with him, w/t/c, no jumping or trail riding. I was looking at horses a little under his price range just because I'm not looking for anything fancy, but I found him and really like him. He's 15 minutes from where I work so I figured what the hey, I'm going to go look at him tomorrow after work. I just got off the phone with his owner and he seemed like a good match so far.
Now, I realize these aren't conformation shots, so bear with me. I'm just wondering what you guys think of the one photo, description, and his pedigree.
After I meet him tomorrow, I'll probably wait about a week and bring my trainer out. If I like him and she does too, I'll go out again and ride another time(3 times all together) then after that do a PPE.
Its hard to do a conformation reply with this photo, but I will work with what I got:)
So from what I see this horse looks reeaaallly small, like pony sized. But it could just be the structure of the woman.
He has nice legs, a little on the skinny size, but pretty good
His neck is decent, on the short side though.
But besides that I would have to have a proper confo. Shot to get a better look at him:) hope he works out!
The only thing I can really say about that photo is that he looks like a Quarter Horse lol
Stocky little fellow with a decent neck set, plenty of depth through the girth and a nice length to his back.
Hindquarters don't look that appealing in that picture, but again, you cannot really tell much so I wont say anything else lol
I didn't ride him, but watched him work some in the round pen and spent some time on the ground with him. He's cutecutecute! I'm going to be looking at a couple more horses, but hopefully going back next weekend to ride him.
This is him after getting all sweaty...
Him giving my boyfriend a "what do you want" look lol
I can't really comment on his conformation too much - he looks like he could do just fine for light riding like you've mentioned, but I can't say much beyond that. I just have to say, I laughed out loud at that first picture. Just the perspective and height of the fence, he looks 4 ft tall! The others, he looks normal sized, just that first one made me do a double take.
