    'Nother TB :)

    Dressage and eventual jumping/event horse.

    Bottom To Top "Bode" is a 5 y/o 16.2h tb gelding. Has been off the track for 5 months, started w/t/c. Is advertised sound and solid. Promised to be super quiet, almost unflappable and super sweet and gentle. Here is a link to his pedigree: Bottom To Top Horse Pedigree

    Hopefully will receive a video tomorrow. Here are pictures for now :) thanks!

    He looks very cute, and has good conformation for a TB. My only thing is he looks a little straight in the hocks. But nice shoulder and neck. He's a cutie

    He is weak and long through the coupling. He is a tad straight through the hocks and over straight through the knee.. just shy of being back at the knee. His neck is set a bit low and he is front end heavy.. slightly down hill. He has awfully high withers and will be a saddle fit challenge.

    Based on his top line I would probably pass on this horse for the discipline you want to follow. He would do OK at lower levels, but it will be a challenge to move him up.

    This horse has similar conformation, yes? Better or worse?

    I like this horses topline better than the first one. Still pretty straight through the hock IMO. Seems to be standing under himself a lot in the front but it could be the picture. I'm new to confo by the way, so someone correct me if I'm wrong :)

    I think her standing under herself was just the way she was stood up. I personally like her. She seemed nice in the video.. But I'm a western rider so I couldn't say much about her being good at what you want. Her pasterns seem a tad long, but they match front to rear and the shoulder angle.
