    what would he be best suited for due to his conformation?

    I like doing dressage. And could handle reining. Some people say he would make a great roping horse. He hates to jump but I don't mind cause neither do I. He is a wonderful horse and he's good at learning and he can work hard for long hours if I feed him for it. Builds muscle very easily! He likes to evade every command though it makes it a challenge to ride him despite everything he's lazy which makes it hard for me to get past relaxation and suppleness into the rest of the training pyramid. I have to be very firm with him. He's very flexible. AND FAST! The only other horses I have ever rode faster than him was a TB mare in the Carribbian and and ex TB race horse from Canada. Can't determine if he is built down hill or evenly.

    Well.....I can't really say anything constructive at the moment because his feet are distracting me. When was the last time his feet were trimmed? Sorry, they are screaming at me so I had to say something.

    I was going to say that as well. His feet need trimmed, his toes are very long.

    His whole foot in both fronts are being slid forward. If it continues, his heels will eventually be under run and the internal structure crushed. I suggest getting his feet balanced again and then re-post your photos.

    I don't owe you an explanation for that however I will tell you he was last trimmed 3 weeks ago. Also I have recently fired my farrier. I did not ask for your comments on his feet I know they are poor I am currently working on it. These pictures are taken properly for this forum I ask your advise on conformation according to a discipline not to judge how well I take care of my horse. I assure you he could not want or need for anything. Forgive however he is not as tone as I like (due to long feet that make him more prone to pulling or stressing something)

    I don't mean to be rude but lately I have discovered that on this forum there is no real help only people who think they know more than you do. Not sure if I will remain on this forum.

    I'm sorry that you took offense. That was not my intention. However, your question as asked cannot be answered when he's not standing as correctly as he could be with proper feet. He's kinda out of whack and it's not fair to judge his angles as presented. As he looks in the photo, I wouldn't do anything strenuous with him. The resistance you are having with him might be due to some discomfort. Nobody is saying that you aren't taking care of your horse. Just pointing something out that prevents folks from answering your question.

    Thank you for the advice. When I have him better balanced I will post more pictures and hope you drop in to share your views. It make take a few months. I am currently looking for Master Farriers in my area. Wish me luck. And happy trails :)

    Pretty. I see a slight sway back though. His front feet are what screamed at me the most. He's very gorgeous though. What is he?
