    QH Cross Conformation Critque?

    I have a 12 year old QH cross that I would like to get his conformation critqued. I know he will probably never win any national level shows but I am taking him in local halter classes and I want to know if he would do well. I know he is not squared up, we are working on that (:

    Thanks.

    I think his butt is a little too high but I'm not an expert (:

    Personally, I like him. His neck is a bit thick and very cresty (though I think that his high withers and how his neck ties into them high has a lot to do with that image) and I'd like to see more muscle on his back half but over all he seems fairly balanced. He isn't extremely down hill as some QH crosses are, and his shoulder and hip are fairly good. There is something funny going on with his front legs but without more pictures its hard to tell...perhaps he's a bit tied in at the knee?

    Thanks for giving me your opinion (: I have shown Saddlebreds so I am not really sure how QH types are supposed to look. I will try to get more pictures up but this was the best one I could find (: Thanks again!

    I think his neck is what really throws me off... Very very thick, low tying to his chest, not very attractive on the halter perspective (knowledge gained from a friend on the horse judging team... One of the few things I remember). His withers look a bit high as well, and I don't think his head is "halter pretty". However, as a non-halter person, I love his coloring and I think he is pretty cute! What classes would you be showing him in other than halter?

    Personally, I find his shoulder to be upright, his back long and his hind legs a bit posty. He looks like a powerful guy nonetheless :) I like his big front end.

    Oh, and his butt looks decent to me... I like his colour too, and how relaxed he looks. I can't say how he would do in halter classes as I have zero experience with that.

    Not really a halter horse at all, but you can learn HOW to show from him.

    Agree with what Falicity said about his build.. but I like him. The pieces fit together into a whole horse that is quite pleasing. I think he is, or will be, a real nice riding horse.

    Is he morgan cross? Or arab?

    He is a bit chubby but is a very nice looking horse and probably nice to ride, right?

    One of the things throwing me off is the angle the picture is taken. Since it's not perfectly from the side and instead from a diagonal, it creates faults that may not be there or as severe as they look. This is particularly true of his shoulders, which are probably not quite as straight as they appear here this is also probably true of his back legs, which look upright. He does seem to have nice straight front lets and his pasterns are at a nice angle. His neck is cresty and his throatlatch is very thick. In the picture his neck also looks a tad short, but that could be partially due to the angle.

    A picture from a more flattering angle would be easier to critique

    @justjump Thanks(: Currently he is a western pleasure horse but we are going to convert him over to english because he is just to fast to compare to all the WP horses. He is also extremely fast and turns on a dime so I may try my hand at barrel racing

    @Falicity Thanks(:

    @Elana Thanks!

    @tinyliny Thanks(: We think he has Arabian in him because he moves like an Arabian and carries his head like one. Yeah he is a chubby horse but he gets fat on seriously nothing. He gets a handful of grain and 1 flake of hay. He is a very nice horse to ride and he is SO smooth.

    @Supermane Yeah, I know its not the best picture to critique off of (: Thanks!
