I don't know much about confo, but from what I have seen he looks like a quite well put together horse. And I think he's face is just gorgeous, he's certaintly very handsome!

Humans are like Slinkies. Practically useless, but still fun to push down the stairs.

Wow, here I thought there might be some things that I just am not seeing but it seems like, from the pics anyway, he looks pretty good...so I have a bit more confidence in my choice in him.

I think I will still be on pins and needles for that vet check on that leg though...He just seems too good.

It's very hard to do a true confo critique without having him stood up correctly for a confo shot. He would need to be standing straight and square, the photo taken directly from the side. A front and rear view, square and straight on, from the hooves up, is a help as well.

next time I go out I will do this. He is pretty easy for me to square up. I'll also get some vid on the lunge line when I can as they are in the process of re-sanding their bullpen. Thanx so much :)

if you are going to go through the expense of dealing with previous injuries on this horse, ask the owner for a trial period for 3weeks to see if you can work with this guy and to watch his leg for continued problems. Remember, you don't ride pretty... you want a sound and rideable animal...Be safe!

From the pics, he looks very well put together. Like another poster said, try to get better confo pics, that will better help us. Cute boy though!!

He is pretty significantly downhill, which will make it hard for him to engage his hind-end. Not saying that it can't be done, but it will go against his basic build and conformation. That said, you don't have upper-level aspirations for him, and any horse can have a go at Training Level stuff! :)

Thank you dantexeventer that is something to really keep in mind when I am working with him and will help me choose work that is more suited to him and avoiding where it is imperative that he is able to really engage his hind. I am really starting to think that the first thing I should do is get going with a dressage trainer to really help me make sure he has his basics all taken care of and find out what other issues he may have as well as how to work with them. I really think that would make everything else come a LOT easier.

I totally agree - a dressage trainer will be able to help you put the training into him so that he understands how to engage. Good luck - I hope the vetting goes well!

He's gorgeous, kinda hard to judge confo from the pics as was said.. but I wanted to say...

I love that there is a barefoot leg peeking out of one of the pics. I'm guilty of wearing flip flops around the barn, (shhh!!!) but i've never gone barefoot.
