    Confo Critique

    Hey guys, could you critique my tb's confo?
    From what I can tell he has a very straight back, is downhill ? (although he is on a slope in these pics), an upside down neck and he needs to build up a lot of muscle in his hindquarters and neck.
    Also what effect would his confo flaws have on him/ our riding?

    And I think these pics make his head look too big, its not really,





    I know this one isn't very good, got it while he was walking away.




    And I just had to add this 1 coz I like it

    I think you are right on with some of your assessment. I don't think she has a "u" neck but rather needs a lot of muscling there as well as her rump. I would have liked to see a little more slope to her shoulder but I like her legs. She could use about 100lb of weight.

    I think with some weight on her and a lot more muscle she could come along well. I would love to see her again in a few months after she has developed more.

    He could gain some weight, looks a bit uphill, he has a nice long neck. I think as you keep working with 'em (like gaining more muscle, esp. On his neck) then he'll look great. He's very pretty though, I like his shiny coat too.

    Would like to do some jumping with him, so how good is his shoulder for that? A bit too upright?

    And i'll def post some more pics in a couple of months, spring's not far off and i'm uping his food intake, so he should look tons better!

    Honestly, before I would consider stressing him by jumping, I would spend a good 60 days fattening him up and working him on the flat to build up some muscle. Work on collection to help with neck and top lines, and a lot of trotting, especially on hills, to build his back end - collection will help there as well.

    Yeah, i'm not jumping him atm, just flatwork to build up muscle and work on the basics before we progress to something further. Thanks for the advice!

    How old is the horse?

    Definitely needs A LOT of groceries. After that, it'd probably be better to critique him. His weight stands out quite a bit.

    It looks like he's got weak hindquarters/hips but maybe that is also a weight issue. He's got a pretty head.

    I'm with everyone else here... get some weight on the fella, he looks weak in the hind... and I'm sure with some weight, correct flat work, this cute boy will be doing some jumping in no time!
