He's got a nice short back and long underline. He is built slightly downhill, and he is calfkneed, and his pasterns appear to be a little straight. I would have like for him to have more of a chest. He is only 3, and will change as he fills out and grows, and he sure look spiffy undersaddle!
Built downhill. Legs set rather far apart. Posty legged. Long sloping pasturs. Neck doesn't tie into shoulder. Straight neck, croup muchhh higher then the withers. Elbow set off from withers. I don't think the legs curve forward. Stifle wayy higher then elbow, hench built downhill. I agree with heavy on the forehand. Looks like he is standing on his toes. Not enough hoof on the heel. Very pretty color.
If a horse is built downhill, they're usually on the forehand. He looks tilted back... but when he's standing, it looks like all of the weight is on his front legs--it doesn't help that his neck is so long, because all it does it put more weight there.
However, when you ride him (or at least, in that one picture) his head is up, enabling him to get off of the forehand... so he should be alright.
As long as he does what you ask and does it well, conformation doesn't matter all that much.
Im not good at critiques but I am going to try....A bit down hill, and a long kneck. His front legs look different but I don't know what. He's a cutie expecially for a 3 year old and I love how a little girl can handle him. That's a good sign
It is not just a horse,
It is the one thing that keeps me from being just a girl
He's not very sickle hocked, if he is at all. In the second photo, it's just the way he's standing.
His is built downhill. He has a tilt to his body, which throws the weight down to his head, and the neck that's too large, just weighs the front end down. That's why he's on the forehand.
At least in the pictures.
