    Critique Indigo

    Alright everyone: New indigo photos !
    Critique him, I have some photo's of him trotting with marshmellow and pepper too which I will eventually upload.
    Im hoping to get better one's though.
    Sorry I couldnt get him to square up to well, so I do hope that these will do.
    He is currently a ShowJumping/Hunter Prospect for me, so how do you think he will do for that ? I want to do some jumping and dressage, so im hoping he would do good in that, if not than what ? :)

    He is a TB, 12-21 approx Years. I just say he is 20 though :)
    Also how is he looking ;) ? He has gained TON's of weight IMHO

    Here are some trotting etc photos

    Sorry for the overload LOL

    I don't like the angle of his feet.
    He is uphill, which I think is better than downhill, but that's just me. I'll leave the rest up to the others who know way more than me!

    His feet may look a bit wonky in the photo's because our ground is very.. bumpy at the moment from all the snow etc. Not flat lol.
    So you will have to excuse that, and he also has snowball's I am having trouble getting out at this moment.
    He also need's to get his feet done

    No critique from me, just wanted to say he looks SO much better than when you brought him home!

    Thank you Appy_luvr
    I do agree, he has gained alot of poundage, and now I can't wait to ride him in the spring/summer ! Just to get him all fit and not such a bulging belly haha, although I would like abit more weight on him but he will get that no problem :)

    He looks so good. Definantly has gained wait, alot of wait. I think he would make a nice jumper.

    He is a very pretty looking boy! He needs some muscling (So does my boy, don't worry!) But other than that I can't really critique.

    I'd say he definitely at least 16 if not in his 20's. You'd have a better idea by looking at his teeth. Good job putting the weight on him!

    If you want to go that route I think you're better off going for jumpers than hunters. I don't think he has the gaits for hunters and they don't care about how you get to or over the jump in jumping as long as you do it. :) This also depends a lot on if he can jump well and safely. A lot of horses who aren't bred for jumping and sports jump flat and dangle their legs. The leg danglers are dangerous since they can get caught up in a pole and flip.

    He's got quite a dip behind his withers. What are you using pad wise when you ride him?

    He was a rescue from the auction, but anyway's I can't tell by the teeth since he is a cribber.
    The weight is still being put on, since he was very underweight etc.
    I haven't ridden him yet, but I am going to probably be starting to ride him abit when it is spring/summer
    I have definitally noticed the dip lol so im not sure how I will go about with that during riding, but ill figure something out.

    He actually has very nice smooth looking gaits, there will be more video's and photo's of course, I have one coming up right away though

    No critique here, just wanted to say I looove his face, he just looks like he's a big sweetheart. I rememeber the pics of him when you first got him, he looks much better. I am looking forward to seeing pics of him in the spring when he fills in some more!
