Confo critique-Trump

This is my parents 16.2hh, nine year old OTTB. He is a bit of a conformation nightmare, but he's a sweetie. Don't hold back, but please say the good and the bad. I hope these pictures are good enough. Sorry I forgot to take off his bell boots.

The whole middle to back end... yikes. The front half looks pretty good. Love his head.

Yep, his front looks pretty good except for those huge withers. As for his back end: *deep breath* his tail set is really high, his croup seems very long and too flat, he stands WAY camped out, he looks a bit bandy-legged and toed out, and he has no muscle to speak of. Plus the whole area of his flank just bugs the pee out of me but I can't recognize what exactly is wrong, I just know that something is. :/ There is something about his back pasterns/fetlocks too. That may just be a result of being camped out.

On a better note, his front legs and chest are gorgeous and he looks like such a sweet boy. :) His neck is a good length and I love the angle of his shoulder. I bet his trot is a dream to ride. :p

Not a nightmare, I have seen lots worse. Mother nature just saw fit to put him together a little funky. What is important is that he is sound and you love him.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
