    I can really see how he is back at the knee. His front feet really pop forward ahead of his body. Should I post better lit pics to get some more information?

    He looks very good to me. The only thing that I noticed that could potentially cause problems is that he is calf kneed (back at the knee) which can cause some serious strain on the joints of the front legs due to the decreased ability to absorb the concussion resulting from a stride. Other than that, I think he looks good. Oh, and I don't think he looks downhill.

    Thank you for your info! What limitations come with being calf kneed? I was going to start schooling him over jumps. Would this be a problem?

    It depends on how high you are going to jump him, but generally yes. Because the knees are essentially hyper-extended, it can really cause stress on the joint and the other joints in the legs. Every horse does differently, though, so I would probably not jump him above 2' maybe 2'3 and watch him closely for any signs of unsoundness or stress on his front legs.

    Where on this chart do you think he relates? I'm worried now. I really wanted to teach him jumpers.

    "D" on the chart.

    Use supportive boots on him when you jump (Professional choice) to help support his legs.. and see how it goes. Most horses start very low and jumping is of little consequence. OTOH if you are jumping 3X or 4X a week at 2'6" to 3'6" you may have a problem.

    Hedoes not look like a very happy camper in the video. It would strongly suggest getting your saddle fitted or trying to figure out what is causing him discomfort.

    Tryst He fusses when you put leg on him. If I lope him without leg he doesn't tail swish. Saddle fits good he will do this in any saddle. The horse Chiro is looking at him Wednesday. My trainer looked at him today and put her hands on him (she shows horses conformationally) and she said she doesn't think he is back at the knee she said its more in his feet. And that she doesn't think he is done growing yet because his croup is not as rounded its more pointed. And that his features resemble a baby.
