My Morgan cross gelding

Hi all,

I'm new to the forum - I bought my first horse Leo last May. He's a 9 yr old, 16hh, Morgan x Paint and has shown up to 2nd level dressage with his old owner. We have only been trail-riding last summer, but are working with a classical dressage trainer now - and we will also be mountain-bound again in the summer :)
Let me know what you think,

Gorgeous horse!
A bit posty in the back legs, though the fronts look good.
Nice shoulder and neck set. Beautiful head.
Hindquarters looks decent, though he appears a little bum high and possibly long in the back..

Yes, I agree - if anything, he has a tendency to go a bit on the forehand cause he's is a bit straight in the back. Nothing major though.
I love him dearly. Will try to get some video of his movement this weekend.

Very pretty horse. At first I thought he might be butt high but when I did the "invisible line" across to his withers, it looks like they may actually be even after all. Hard to do on a computer Back might be a tad long but I can't be sure that it isn't my screen stretching him a little. Overall I would say a lovely horse. Strange he would be heavy in the forehand with dressage training to the 2nd level. He could be testing to see what he can get by with???

what a gorgeous tank you have there! he appears level through hock/knees and is a little long through back but his neck is gorgeous, i love that noble head. what's he crossed with? I would guess saddlebred maybe?

Thanks for your replies.
It's not like he runs around heavy on the forehand - I'll try to get some video of him moving on the weekend...
And good eye chopstick. He's Morgan x Paint, but his dad is a very "saddlebred" looking Morgan (JMF Future Vision).
