I think the OP is being honest.

The horses in not very good conformation wise.

Why say anything less????

The OP wants a trail horse.

He is just that.

Or why say that at all? I don't see anything that will prevent him from being the great pleasure horse/trail horse the OP wants. Conformation is very subjective to breed and disapline. Many a perfectly conformed halter horse would be completely unsuited for trail.
Seabiscuit had aweful conformation by most definitions, but excelled in his disapline because someone was willing to look at ability and heart.

I think he is well built enough, and very attractive over all. I cirtainly would not be ashamed to have him in my pasture.

If you had bothered to read her other thread, you'd know the OP was feeling a little bit down about her horse. /facepalm

He's beautiful, and really has blossomed under your care. He has such a kind face. Please update us on the progress of his training!

We drink to our youth, to the days come and gone; for the age of oppression is now nearly done.

I did read it......and did not post in it.

This is for opinions on conformation.

She knows the horse's faults.

And one is huge.

Well, I think he is gorgeous! Whether he is a grand champion or trail horse, it doesn't matter. Lord knows, I have some of the most non-grand champion horses around....and they are beautiful and fabulous. OP should be proud!

I want to know what his confo flaws are too because when I saw she was just using him for trails I was shocked as to why she wouldn't do more with him. I think he is absolutely gorgeous and I don't see any major flaws. He looks nicely put together to me

My horse's feet are as swift as rolling thunder He carries me away from all my fears And when the world threatens to fall asunder His mane is there to wipe away my tears.
