Critique Appreciated

Hi all,

Please openly critique Byron Soloist.

14.2hh Australian Riding Pony Gelding. Bay 8yrs.

Competes in hack shows, wasn't broken till he was around 5 and has never been in full time training until myself, so he hasn't done a heap but has managed to win a few classes and place highly at a royal, and has won heaps with us and we have only had him for a year. He is a handful, has the head of a 2yr old, has caused a scene at many shows and does have many flaws including bucking and tantrums. But overall he is a nice boy, great personality just very dominating.

I'm now training him in showjumping to hopefully mature him a little and be able to compete with him at PC this year.

Would like a critique of his conformation and just a general opinion. The most recent photo of him is the one of him jumping on the lunge, taken yesterday. The others are pretty old.

Beautiful Beautiful Beautiful. I can't nit-pick at anything really besides he needs more muscle.

Looks nice from these pics...although it's really hard to tell until you have a conformation pic (without tack.) Nice tuck to the jump though!

Looks good to me! Very shiny coat. He looks very healthy.

Have you hugged your horse today?

He's gorgeous. Needs more muscling it seems though.

There's nothing that really "stands out", besides he's absolutely beautiful!
