Confo Critique mah Poneh!

Haha. K so I am seriously starting to work with my boy {took me long enough} and I wanted to know what ya'll think his conformation is like. By the way he's a 9 year old POA cross gelding. No clue in hell what he's crossed with. His mom was the POA but I never met his dad and by the time my mares old owner new she was pregnant the 2-3 studs he had were gone. Dad could be QH, Paint or even some random crossbreed. So here he is.

^^^ Was on a slight hill.

I know the pics aren't that great. Going to try and get some better ones. Those are from last summer.

Hmmm his feet might look a bit long. Hard to tell though

Let's see, it looks like his back is slightly long and he has a fairly short neck that ties in lower than desirable. He is also mitten withered and his shoulder angle looks a little upright. His hind end looks strong and round and I love his legs. His front legs are very straight and his cannon bones are short as are his pasterns, which looks to be at a good angle as well. His back legs aren't square, but I'm going to guess that his hocks are at a nice angle. He looks to be a very sturdy little pony; how tall is he?

Thnx. What is mitten withered and is it bad that his shoulder is upright? Is it horribly bad about his neck being short and his back long? He was measured last night at 12.3hh

Mutton withers just refer to flat withers, they really don't effect much except saddle fit, but it can also effect the horses ability to collect. A short neck doesn't effect much at all, it aesthetic. A longer back is usually coupled with a weaker loin and can effect the horse's ability to engage their back and hind end. It also tends to makes horses jump a little flatter. However, I've found that they are more comfortable ride. Your horses back isn't super long, just a little longer than ideal. Upright shoulders might cause a bumpier ride, as there is more knee action and it can effect a horses jumping form.

And I thought he was taller looking at the pictures. He is super cute.

I love POAs! I used to have a few spot leopard POA. Your boy has great markings. How tall is he? None of his conformation flaws are major. However, I would think about getting a new farrier. Whoever trimmed him, left his heel too short, and toe too long. This will only lead to lameness down the road.

He is 12.3 hands high Bigzee and we have already got a new farrier just cause of moving places. Thank for the critiqe Supermane. Yes his trot is killer bumpy. We've jsut started him over fences and from being on him he doesn't seem to go flat. Granted we've just done little cross-rails
