Thanks to all; it's shocking that he's got to this state, isn't it? I don't know how it's happened, but from the moment we saw that poor bag of bones, something fishy was obviously going on.
You are all right, we have been thinking the same thing, that he could be completely different under saddle when fed up. The next realistic thing really, is to walk away. It's a sad situation, but I can't feasibly have him as a charity case. Can only hope that someone is able to take him on and help him out.

Why is he so skinny?
No wonder he isn't cutting it as a jumper - he probably has no energy to do so, and his hind end conformation leaves much to be desired.

Just as a FYI - the quarter sheet is supposed to be done up above the wither, not in front of the chest (as in it goes under the saddle flaps and does up right in front of the pommel)
;)

Are you walking away from the instructor that doesn't know how to properly feed (or tack up) a horse, too?
