He looks terribly tense under saddle, which seems likely to be due in part to his training. He's got what I've heard termed as an "upside down neck"... tons of muscle on the underside and not much on the top, which is the opposite of what is typically desired with a horse in most disciplines.

If he had a bigger butt he wouldnt look so bad.... haha But he is pretty.

I actually think that a lot of his odd conformational "issues" are from the way he is being ridden/trained. More of a muscular issue with an over-built neck, no hind quarters, etc.

I agree. If someone would take the time to ride him correctly and condition him, he wouldn't be 'upside down', he'd be more evenly porportioned, and have more of a look of grace.

Lovely photos, but please don't breed your mare to him

Both studs have APPALLING conformation and should not be stallions... All of my horses are a million times better conformed than either of those stallions, and all of mine are geldings.

If the mare's pure arab, why not breed a pure arab instead of just another grade horse? And there are some AMAZING stallions avaliable through AI, I honestly can't see why anyone would choose to breed to those two, they look awful, almost like something is wrong with their spines...

Until today, I could truthfully say I'd never seen a bad Andalusian Arab cross. Until today. Unfortunately, that stud seemed to take the absolute worst traits of both breeds and none of the good ones they're known for throwing on crosses.

I know it's not your choice, but I would strongly encourage whoever was thinking of this mating to re-think it. If I may stereotype a bit, just from the looks of his tack, training and rider, he is very much a discount cheap stud, yes?

Sometimes the price says it all.

I can see why you like him, he's very "showy" and "spirited", but unfortunately there is nothing about his conformation that makes him very good at ANY discipline.

Let me remind you guys that I posted these pictures in PICTURES section because I liked how the pictures turned out and that I PERSONALLY liked the stallion. I didn't say he had perfect conformation, nor did I say anything about him being a 'fine specimen of his breed.' Yes, I opened the thread to comments on whether you liked him or not- so that's fine, but I do NOT want critique on whether or not he should be gelded, or if our mare should be bred to him or not. If I did, I would of posted in the breeding or horse and rider critique section x.x Yes the horses have flaws, but I did not ask you to tear them apart.

He's not a fine specimen of anything, let alone his breed.
