Thoroughbred Andalusian Cross

I know I already posted pictures of him before, but I only got one reply and I also found some newer better pictures and wanted to check with you guys if you saw anything different.... His name is Allegro and he's an 11 year old Andalusian Thoroughbred cross. We compete in eventing and hunter/jumper.

PS. sorry about him pawing....he gets impatient lol

Nice horse. A bit long in the back and very straight thru the hocks... but the hocks are set nice and low. Nice shoulder and neck set. Good withers and a smooth top line.

You jumping him? The one photo seems to say this.. (so does your post).

Any photos over fences?

He's a very good looking boy! I was a bit skeptical when you said he was a TB x Andi, but I was pleasantly susprised to see his pictures. If I didnt know better I'd think he was a purebred warmblood of sorts. Maybe Hanoverian?

Beautiful topline, good hip, legs, and shoulder. Really the worst I can say about him is that he has a thick throatlatch which is strictly cosmetic.

Thank you for posting the jumping photos.

Considering his shoulder and neck I figured he would be a scopier jumper and much better with his knees. In two of these photos I would say he has his knees dangerously low.. to the point where he could catch a fence. Now maybe the fences are not high and not challenging him or he got in too close etc. but that one over the rail and especially the one over the roll top has me thinking Yikes!

I am surprised considering his conformation photos.

Very interesting.

A lot of the TBxAndy horses I've seen tend to have long backs and thick throatlatches. Pasterns look a little upright in the second photo but that might be the angle. Knees hanging rather badly in the jump photos though, I don't know squat about jumping but I'd be pretty concerned.

Allegro is beautiful, and more importantly looks like the same horse at both ends, which is more than can be said of a lot of TBxAndys (and a fair few other crossbreeds)...

He does get bored with the little jumps so that could be why. Those pictures were taken a few years ago as I can't ride now. Thank you for the help though with he critique

Oh my gosh, just read his story! What a wonderful horse!! A thick throatlatch is more than forgiven...

Yes he's an amazing horse. A farrier once told me to sell him while I can because he'd never amount to anything and was too short for me. (I'm 5'10 and he's 15 to 15-1). So glad I didn't otherwise i wouldn't be here today
