Critique 3 Year old Gelding!

This is Jet, photos taken earlier today. He is three years old and he is an STB or TB mix or something of that sort. He has been home from the trainers for about 5 weeks now and I wanted to know what you thought of his confirmation and physique!

p.s. I apologize that he is not all squared up, he wanted to rest one back leg and it was silly how long i tried to get him on all four. So please do what you can with them.

p.s.s. The photos of him with saddle are from about three weeks ago. ( i know conformation critque is done without a saddle but you might be able to look at his legs better in these ) Thanks in advance!

What a stunning horse :) Be careful tying by the mouth, wouldn't want him to hurt his jaw if something were to spook him!

I love how straight his legs are. He looks like a strong and healthy boy!

He is extremely well put together. Other than having a tiny bit of a jughead (and that does sit with standard bred types, sometimes), he has a great back/hip/shoulder, clean straight legs, good neck to body ratio, nice pasterns . I mean he is awesome!

I like him a lot, but does he toe out in the back?

Thanks y'all! Lol... He does toe out in the back but it is only noticeable when he is standing, when he walks they re straight. But when I first got him he tied out so much it was ridiculous. He is still young, but I want to do eventing with him hopefully!

I like him. I wish he was a little shorter in the back and that head.. LOL. I will say this tho, you don't ride the head! He also seems a bit hock high, but you say he is young so it is forgiven.

I really like seal brown horses like this and am wondering if he is dappled as well. Color is the LAST thing I look at.. I don't care about color at all since you don't 'ride the color' any more than you 'ride the head.'

Nice little horse.
