Tell me what you think about his confirmation. I am buying a horse and I may inquire in this one.

He looks a little underweight to me in his neck and shoulders. It's not the best confirmation pic since he looks like he is standing under himself in the back.

His withers look really steep but I'm not a TB person so it could seem more exaggerated to me. His back also looks kind of short.

What would you like to do with him?

The biggest problem with this horse is that he is very under-muscled, but that's an easy fix. I would check him out. What would be your plans for him?

I would want to event up to prelim. In 3-4 years. I also thought his back is a little short.

I like the look of him, but like others have said he's undermuscled, and frankly doesn't look that healthy in general. There's no shine to his coat, no little sparkle in his eye, and he looks quite displeased.

Oh yeah, I see what you mean.

Here is a happier looking picture of him -

That last picture is much better for his cute personality! It really stands out to me that he has a very short back.

He might be kind of a fixer upper and could use a good diet and some love and muscle. I don't know how the short back would affect your eventing career, hopefully someone else will know!

Yeah, or I could look it up somewhere, and see what effects a short back would have.
