Agree with what is said here (except the jumping). Both horses look like they need to learnhow to use their ring of muscles.. they have not been asked to work off their hind quarters and shift their weight to the rear. This is showm by a lack of abdominal muscle and necks that are not 'turned over."
These two both have similar hind quarters.. so much so I wonder if they share the same ancestors. Horse number one looks to need a front tram and reset. I notice the shoes are spread at the heel to give support to the hoof. The hocks appear a bit round and the hind legs seem a bit straight.
Horse #1 jumps exactly as his conformation dictates he would jump. He does not have the shortness of back or open shoulder angle to be pretty over jumps. He lacks abdominal muscles to try to be pretty. He looks like he stabs in front of the fence and then over jumps it because his front knees hang (and they do, that is why he tucks hier front legs).
Not bad horses either one.. just need to be worked on basics to build better musculature along the abdomine to help support their long backs.
