I'm partial to this halter horse, who is not doing a bad hunter trot.

Here is FG Totally A Charmer moving.

His back end looks a lot better than the previous video. "Charmer" looks like he has a better push off his hocks. I wish I could describe it better...

I guess. But still moves really heavy and does not look like a very comfy ride to me. I don't think I'd ever be talked into liking that "look", so I admit up front to being biassed against it. The on steriods, swollen hams, head down like a whipped dog look is not my cup of tea.

I was trying to figure out what he reminded me of and you hit the nail on the head. It may be because I'm partial to the lighter built breeds, but I do not find that attractive. I'm not well-versed in the world of halter, but what do they do with these horses after their show career is over? It doesn't look like a very comfortable riding horse, then again, like I said, I'm not all that familiar with this area, so I could be very wrong.

Some stay sound enough to be riding horses, but most are predisposed to leg issues since they are so post legged with too much weight for them to carry. I've noticed quite a few die while they are young.

Oh my goodness what are people doing? That horse in the video and the first one in the OP's post look deformed in the back. That horse in the video moves more like a Hippo then a horse. I find that very very sad. It doesn't look like the horse is even comfortable moving at all.

FG Totally A Charmer, or Ozzy, is all natural and fitted on very carefully. I believe he started his u/s career but don't quote me on that, if he hasn't I think he is soon and he shows a lot of promise. I think he's gorgeous, and he's the type that halter horse breeders SHOULD be breeding for.

Okay, I'm a farm girl and whenever I see one of these halter QHs, paints, or appys, I think of a Limousin bull (which are double muscled)



When I say I don't like QH's, these are the type that I dislike. If a horse is got muscle he should have bone to match (i.e. A draft horse) and if it has small bones, it should have the muscle to match (TB, Arab, etc). Just my opinion.

Agreed ... that is *shakes head*, nevermind. I have no words.

Haha! Love the bull reference! And I agree with you GG. I too am not terribly fussy on QH's, but it's those kind specifically I'm not huge on. I hate to say it, but IMO, it's almost grotesque. But you could say the same thing about the Arabs with overly dishy faces with the respiratory problems. I find it really hard to conceive that something to that extreme would be considered desirable. I'm sure at some point though, it will cycle back the other way with all of the health problems that seem to come with this stuff.
