    Conformation Critique

    This is Maverick, he's a Welsh X and he's just turned 14. He's great at jumping and he's real speedy. :P

    Just wondered what his good and bad points are really, as I know nothing about conformation! Though I know he has pigeon toes, he's not showing it much in these pics though.

    Thanks. (:

    In some of the pictures he looks like he's leaning over his front legs ..

    Just from those pictures, he looks sway backed and he might toe in a bit, his shoulder is a bit steep, and he needs more muscle over his topline (trotting and collecting will really help that).

    But other then that he is a really pretty guy!

    KANSAS_TWISTER - I'll try and get one, he's such a fidget.

    Paintluver - I think he is a bit toed in, but could you tell me how a sway back affects them? I know nothing! X).

    All in all though, i'm not too fussed. He's still my perfect boy.

    I think he looks a little "flat" backed. The horses back should come down at the withers and then start back up. It means he may have some back pain issues later in life, but if he is 14 now and not showing any signs I wouldn't worry about it. He has a nice shoulder line, he should have a fairly nice trot and his back side look like he should be able to get under himself well. I think He looks like a nice horse :)

    Thankyou! I think I see what you mean about his back, and he does have a nice trot!

    Is that a rock stall? COOL 8)

    Yeah, it's a stone building with two loose boxes and some stalls. It's great because it's really light and he's just got wooden bars around his box not walls. :)
