Any Improvement?? OTTB **Pic Heavy**

Took new pics of Pride recently. Tell me what you think of his comformation and if his muscle has improved any. I have been really trying to work on his butt and neck. We have started jumping so I've thrown in a a couple of those you can critique as well. He wouldn't stay still for the conformation shots so they may be at an odd angle.
Thanks :)

XD well I have to say, when I saw the pictures of him jumping, I laughed. Not because you're doing badly, but because of his expression! Its like 'OHMYGOSH I'm actually clearing it! I'm so freaking proud.'

But anyways, moving on to the critique.

I actually see a lot of improvement just in general. His coat is much brighter and he looks happy. He appears to be a good weight, and he's beginning to get some muscle where he needs it. I know its tough getting these guys in working order; I'm in the process of retraining an OTTB also!

Not too much to complain about with his conformation. He's a very typey TB, although I love that he actually has a decently put together wither, and not a crazy shark fin like our guy has. Pretty good bone, good shoulder angles. His head is rather...large, but I'm fairly sure it just looks that way because of his big muzzle. He looks like he's smiling though!

His back end isn't as nice as the front. He looks just a bit camped under with long pasterns, but it's nothing to be alarmed about.

Overall I think you found yourself a keeper! I just love his facial markings.

HA yes he LOVES to jump :) He gets so frustrated when he knocks a rail down. He does have quite a large head even for his 17.1 h frame... it reminds me of a moose LOL especially with his ears. I'm hoping with more jumping and collection work we can build up his booty.
Thanks for the nice comments
