Please critique Jester 5.5yr old Pinto Arab/Percheron

Hello

This is Jester , 5.5yr (6 on May 19th) pinto arab/percheron. When we got him he knew nothing ( we got him in august), we had to teach him to halter, lead, be groomed, all those fun things :) on a 1600lbs "colt". He was gelded at 4.5, but was used at stud a few times, and he can act very studdy if he thinks you will let him. Jester leaves tomorrow to my trainer and she is breaking/training him. He will be gone for 60-90 days. I have worked with this trainer before and she does wonderful work.

I have just started Dressage training, and LOVE it! Currently using a lesson horse for it. My goal is to eventually have Jester as my LOW level dressage horse. I have only done western, and mostly just trails, some showing when I was younger.

Any idea, on if he is conformationally ok for it?

Thanks
Jaime

I see no reason at all that he couldn't do low level shows. He'd likely never be great at it, but for low levels, the training can make up for a lot of what natural ability is lacking.

Ok, now why wouldnt he be great at it ? Not that I am expecting great. What do you see that would prevent that?

He's really heavy in his front end (which nearly every draft cross will be) and couple that with the straighter hocks and longer body, it will be very hard for him to collect to the level that you would need for more than low level shows.

It's especially obvious in the pic of him trotting, even though that appears to be an extended trot, he is a very long way from tracking up.

When I looked at the first pictures, I thought, what a nice smallish horse... then I saw the picture with the person jogging next to him. That is NOT smallish horse. Oups silly me.

Thanks.

In the trotting picture, that was the first time I have ever asked for a trot while leading. When he is out in the pasture, his trot is beautiful, and it looks different then this picture. Not arguing with you at all, just I don't think he was sure of himself.

When judging the length of body what points do you use? I know what we use in dogs, never asked about the horse.

I agree with smrobs asessment of his flaws, if you can call them flaws. He's a very nice looking horse and will look stunning under tack with his winter coat gone. Low level dressage will be just fine with him.
