See my edit on my earlier post. :) I agree with her about the angles in the hind end and the long pasterns.

The more I look at it, the less I like it. The hind-end is definitely not great.

Really don't like the small feet. I'm not into the big-horse-on-spindly-legs look, which seems to be common in a lot of warmbloods these days.

OKay so friend just sent this, and I'm waiting to hear what the price is. Only thing that strikes me as odd is its from a breeder but listed as 'other warmblood' which I don't know what that means to be fair

I like that one better.

He (I can see it's a boy) has better bone and looks more likely to stay sound for you. There's still something interesting about his hind end that I can't quite put my finger on and is he a bit thick through the throatlatch? At the end of the day, unless you're going to spend a zillion euros on a horse, you're probably not going to find one with perfect dressage conformation. You just want it to not be a conformational disaster and correct *enough* to do what you want to do and stay sound,

He might be slightly over at the knee, or holding his front leg at an odd angle.

I'd probably phone up and maybe look at that one, at any rate.

I like this one much better. Conformationally, he's much better looking in angles and proportion than the first one. I'd go look at him.

I think maybe just not so well built from behind...If he's still there will do, he's out of my price range right now!
