Yes, he's my horse.
He's got a ewe neck, but it's not from lack of proper collection under saddle. It's conformational. That may make his neck appear to jut out and perhaps lead to the illusion that it's too long, but I disagree that the length is a real issue here. He's not a nice, clean throatlatch, unlike many ewe-necked horses, which thins the neck and again lead to its appearance of excess length.

Besides the neck, the biggest thing I would fault this horse on is his rump. He has an excessively steep croup that leads into straight stifles and gaskins and slightly posty hocks. While this allows him to collect and drive from behind fairly well, he'd never be a highly competitive athlete.

Mkay. Why did you ask for critique, if you already knew everything?

Sorry, am I not allowed to post my own opinions on my horse, and politely disagree with or ask for clarification on other poster's assessments as I would elsewhere in the forum?

Holy crap, what a gorgeous mane! I bet if you got him nice and collected it would make him look even more gorgeous, kind of like the reining horses, you know what I mean? Kind of like this:



What do you do with him?

He's just a trail horse. His previous owner put some reining fundamentals on him but did not finish him, and no one in my family competes or knows how to rein. My mom is his primary rider; he takes care of her.
