If you could choose one of these yearlings which would you? I'm looking at yearlings to buy. I have a few pictures and descriptions of several yearlings I would like to train for WP. Based on their conformation, which do you think would be best suited for WP and which has the typical 'show' look. ( I have shown WP a lot before but don't know much about looking for prospects!) I realize that it is difficult to judge how a young horse will turn out. I would be planning on showing in APHA and possibly AQUA ( with some of the double registered ones) and using the yearling asa 4H project. Also please judge which looks like it has the conformation required for naturally slow gaits and low headset. These are the only pictures I could find. Thanks for the help! Please list horses in order of suitability. Thanks so much guys!! Note: I would like the horse to be able to do a little bit of everything- an all around horse. Not sure if that makes a difference in selection.
