The photos are not so great for a conformation critique. He appears to be a nice cute horse, but I would think more of a dressage horse then a barrell horse. You may break him down trying to get the tight circles.

He might be a little long in the back but otherwise he looks really good! Has some nice muscling :)

I know I don't have any good conformation pictures just yet. These are the best I've got for now. He turns pretty effortlessly. Is there anything you can see conformation wise that would make you think barrels would break him down besides his height?

I didn't even watch the whole video..There are so many things wrong with it.. Stay way, far away.. If they've had him on the pattern for a week and they're exhibitioning him like that he's going to blow up and blow up hard. NO horse should be moving that fast when being started on barrels.. They will end up ruining him before he even has a chance to start.

I can't really say much for conformation with those pictures.

He has issues rating and that was the first time she loped the pattern. He is still learning collection. He had only been on the pattern for a week in that video. He is mine. Owned him for four years. Any advice would be great.
