She seems to stand with her hind legs a bit far apart, but it could just be these photos. It also looks like her tail is set rather low - but that shouldn't create any problems! A very nice horse :)

She doesn't usually have them that far apart but she didn't want to stand they way I wanted her to LOL. Her back right does tend to turn out a bit. Her tail does seemed sort of tucked into her when she is standing like that but when she moves out it floats behind her and pops up if that makes sense.

I don't know if she will ever be a really "muscular horse" she seems so "feminine" to me. She is strong as heck though. But she is also pretty darn sweet.

She's gorgeous! The only things that really stand out to me are that she's cow hocked and toed out. Maybe it's just angle of the shot, but she's got a massive chest cavity. I'll bet she doesn't tire out very quickly, haha. Did she ever race?
    12-11-2008, 12:48 PM
Yeah she is toed out, no she never raced but she is direct from racing stock. My friend who endurance rides says she is the most amazing horse he has ever ridden as far as strength and endurance. She flies over jumps with so much ease! I would love to see someone make her a jumper. On the other hand when she is worked and collected she has great dressage potential. I don't know she isn't super flashy maybe eventing would be her thing. So many possibilities. Her father and siblings have been winning dressage horses.

Yeah, her chest is huge and her hock-hip line is really long, which signifies jumping potential. I feel like toeing out is a major conformation fault for jumping though, but maybe that's just for higher levels. Hmm... anyone know?

Oh, and how tall is she?
    12-11-2008, 04:17 PM
She is not as toed out as she appears in the pics, and she seems to have no issue with jumping. I have not jumped her very high, but she has jumped 3 plus with ease. But long term I don't know. Confirmation is not really my thing. Oh and she is 15.3 I like her size but its sort of smallish compared to what people are looking for.
