These pictures aren't critiquing quality. The fact that he is not standing square in any of the photos, and that his hind photos are taken at a crooked angle make it almost impossible to critique him. Try getting four pictures of him- one of his butt end with his tail either braided or held out of the way and his two back feet square, one of his right side with his head extended (offering him a carrot and pulling it away slowly will get this effect) and feed squared, one of his left side, and one of his front. His head needs to be out of the way and we need to be able to see his chest and legs.

From what I can see in these photos, his hindquarters are severely undermuscled (how long has he been lame?) and don't tie in very well with his back, but his legs are too unaligned for me to say anything. His neck seems to be fairly nicely set though, if a bit undermuscled. A pretty head too.

Try to get those pictures and restart the thread ^^ you'll get lots more feedback

There's something really odd about his hind legs; the long line to the hock and that they are crooked (when the canon is aligned to be vertical, it should line up with the back edge of his butt,). This horse's leg are way out behind himself and then sickle hocked. The angle of the hoof does not bathc the angel of pastern or shoulder. I wonder if putting some slight wedges under his heels , front and rear, will help his lameness. Seriously. Could make a huge difference.

I see a faint shadow of something like a Paso Fino in him

MUCH better quality photos. Good job.

I agree with tinylily, there is definitely something strange about his hind legs. Their angle is all wrong and they seem weak. Not growing his pedal bone is a good reason for that. What I'm wondering is why you put him into training as a jumper if you knew that there was something wrong with his legs? You could (or may of) severely messed up his legs even more. Jumpers need very clean legs to be able to perform well, or even safely. I'd advise in consulting a good farrier or vet on how to correct his posture as much as possible, and hope he comes out sound so that you can do some light riding. He has a very sweet looking eye and really is a nice looking animal- legs aside. He'd probably make a wonderful trail horse or all-arounder.

Besides all of that though, I do want to say he's a very pretty animal. He has that regal look to him, you know? Very strong shoulders and a deep girth (most likely that selle in him!) he does look pigeon toed in front, but it might just be the picture. He looked a bit unnaturally splayed in that chest-to-hoof picture.

And tinylily, I'd just like to add that the paso you're seeing in him is most likely his slight (and by the way, absolutely adorable) roman nose and high set eyes as well as the really defined withers that pasos are known for.

All in all, he's really cute! Might want to rethink the intense training though ^^
