    QH critique

    All right everyone, here to demonstrate my complete and total lack of knowledge about conformation.

    12 year old, bay QH gelding, has a little bit of TB in his bloodlines, currently ridden western but considering switching to english, maybe some jumping since he seems to enjoy it.

    I apologize for the bad pictures, and the too tight halter, I was in a hurry. Like I said I know nothing about confo. I've been working hard on topline stuff, at one point someone told me there was something about his croup that they did not like, I believe they said it was too steep. Curious to see if anyone else sees it.

    In addition to general confo, do you think he would be better suited english or western?

    His croup is nice what I think she saw was that he is actually down hill which makes his hind end looks a little disproportionate. He has a nice big, deep hip, legs look good but photos are a little dark to see his hocks/pasterns well. Shoulder is a little straight but nice neck tie in and clean throatlatch. Nice looking boy!

    I agree with Chopsticks
    He is cowhocked and built down hill. Judging from the awkward way he is standing in the back end, it looks as though he may be sickle hocked as well to a small degree.
    Nice hindquarters, which would definitely help him with jumping and though he has a sharp slope to his shoulder, he has a good, deep girth.
    Neck needs some muscle, but other than that he looks good. I shouldn't think he would have much trouble at either discipline.

    He's definitely butt high, and looks to be toed out in front as well.

    He looks toed out in the front, and I would like him to be a little more even front to back, but other than that he's cute!

    Guys he's really not downhill. Maybe like 1/2 an in. Look at his knee to hock angle.

    Toes out....slight cowhocked....weak topline....low neck tie in....straighter shoulder. Nice hip.
