    Critique Doc Please

    He's a 12 year old 15.2hh Saddlebred x Quarter Horse. Please, feel free to pick him to pieces!

    He's one of the most obvious examples of a cross I've ever seen-- you can definitely see both breeds clearly. It is almost hard to critique!

    He's got the saddlebred hooves, pasterns, neck, and hindquarters. A QH barrel, head, and short legs.

    I agree with SeWHC. A very obvious cross! I've never seen a Saddlebred x QH horse cross before. Lovely boy!

    Edit: What do you plan on doing with him? That might help people critique him for you if they know what he'll be used for. One thing that jumps out at me is his long back/short legs combo. He will have trouble collecting himself undersaddle for extensive riding. For trail riding it wouldn't be a problem.

    I really like his neck and his color His back seems to be quite long and it is "hanging" a little bit (sorry for the unprofessional vocabulary, but English is not my mother tongue) ;)

    Thanks for the comments everyone!

    As far as what he's used for, he is primarily a trail horse. However, if anyone notices him being well suited for something in particular, I would love to hear about it!

    Also, any tips for conditioning would be greatly appreciated. We just started doing roughly hour long walks, with about 10 minutes of intermittent trotting, six days (hopefully) a week. Is this okay? How quickly should I increase the amount of time he spends trotting? Any suggestions would be great, he's my first horse and I'm very new at this.

    I would just try it. If he isn't tired or out of breath after the trot, you can increase it after one week. If he gets tired just keep on trotting him for 10 minutes. After 2 or 3 weeks he should be capable of this work. If you notice, that his endurance does not increase after some training, there is probably something wrong with his food or his health. Don't forget to do diverse training, otherwise he'll probably get bored (and you too)

    Well, I've been doing that routine for three days, and he doesn't break a sweat, or even breathe hard. I'll bump up his trotting a bit next time. Don't worry, we work on other things as well. :)

    He is an interesting looking fellow. To be honest too much going on for me to really critique without coming out harsh so I will just say he needs a diet and that he is a cute boy.
