QH critique

Can someone give this gelding a critique. He would be used for trail riding. He seems to be pigeon toed and does paddle in the video, just hard to tell how badly pigeon toed he is from those pictures.

In that one picture it looks very baddd.
I would Suggest dont buy him if you havent.
Conformation limits the ammount of years and what you can do with a horse.
Its worth finding a horse with good or decent conformation.

If it weren't for those legs, he'd be wonderful.

I'd only use a horse like him for very light, occasional riding. Such a shame.

what leg problems? the horse was only appearing to be pigeon toed due to the way he was standing in ONE photo. That was a nice looking horse, not one thing wrong with his legs.
IT's no wonder he sold .

^ I was going to say the same thing. He looked like a very willing, solid western gelding that could potentially have many years of trail riding, all around riding, and possibly even some light competing. His legs looked just fine to me...better than my mare's anyways!

I thought his legs looked fine. Not perfect but not seriously misformed... i personally found him gorgeous.

It was very apparent one of his legs was doing winging out and the other was doing winging in thats probably why he kept tripping over his front feet.

I watched the video. I can see a little winging out with the left front, but it is not the cause of any tripping. He tripped due to uneven ground. The other times, the rider was too abrupt in the stop, and back up cue.

I think that horse moves out really nicely. he almost had an Indian horse "shuffle" , like an Appalousa. there may be a winging out , but like the "paddling" done by many Andalusians, it is an anomoly and rarely creates unsoundness. They are just built that way.

The horse is not an Andalusian its a QH.
