    Overall I prefer the gray - shorter and stronger topline, slightly better shoulder angle and neck is more correctly muscled. He also has a higher point of shoulder. With that said I would strongly suggest a PPE as something looks off about the right front leg to me (old bow maybe, or ??). Not sure how it would impact him as a jumper. Pics also make him looks like he has very small feet.

    Chestnut might be a diamond in the rough with correct work really look much better. He is also a bit straighter on both ends, but somewhat more bone and slightly lower and roomier hocks.

    The grey has an old splint on his right leg. The vet was not worried at all about his capabilities.

    The grey is better but the chestnut has better bone. Neither is a good dressage prospect for anything beyond maybe 2nd level.. for showing.

    I wish the grey had more bone. He is pretty light for a 3' or higher horse. The Chestnut has a steep shoulder and may not get his knees up over a fence.

    The grey looks a bit weedy to me, I prefer the chesnut.

    Is 2'9" or 3' okay do you think?

    I am at school and cannot post a video but if you look up trafalgar in youtube you will find 2 videos of the grey. He is a 2005 17 hh thoroughbred gelding. The chestnut one is 3 years old and 15.3 hh.

    I like the chestnut's bone but not his shoulder; far too upright to jump very high.

    The grey has more prominent withers which will be a tad difficult to fit with a saddle, and he's more slightly built than the chestnut.

    Not seeing either of them as great prospects for jumping or dressage, but they'd be decent lower level ones.

    I like the grey. I don't like the chestnuts shoulder. I don't think the grey horses withers are that bad. Just make sure you get a saddle that fits, they make saddles for high withered horses.
