    critique my baby boy!thanks!!

    Okay, anybody want to take a shot and critique my baby.. I don't care how harsh you are on him or me. If you can even be harsh to okay some background about duke: he is a quarter horse, he is 12-18 yrs of age( we are unsure about it).. he can do anything from trails to jumping( if you need to know that):)... you make also critique my photos from a photographer standpoint but mainly please critique him and what I need to work on. He is not in his best shape that he was in, we had to take a break due to his health and my injuries I had. Also please critique how the saddles fit on him(especially the english saddle)but here he is....

    Thanks again for the help!!!

    I like him!
    Not in a critiquing mood, but just wanted to add that his hooves look reallly long!

    thanks. Yeah it is actually how his conformation is.. he has something I forgot the name of but he has a little heel which makes his hooves long and his withers more dominant..

    I've never heard anything conformation wise to have his feet look like that.
    As for his withers..he just needs a topline
        10-26-2008, 08:32 PM
    Yeah I can't remember what it is called. But I think I said that wrong. I mean that he has like no heel which makes him walk more on his heel which makes him use all his muscle and energy on his leg and chest and all his muscles drop down .. that is one reason he doesnt have a good topline.. how do you obtain topline?? What can I do? Thanks for the help!

    To get a topline you got to teach him to properly carry himself when you ride. Reaching under himself and rounding his back

    Okay I read one post you did about topline and collection. This weekend I will try some of those techniques under saddle.. sonny reminds me of duke the way his topline is. See duke has the huge butt thing down pat its just the topline. Can you show me some photos of a good topline? Thanks

    Those are some pictures of horses with fairly good toplines

    His front right foot doesn tlook to good...his toe is extremely long. A very nice back I will admit. His eyes seem kind of tired =/

    Lol I love the cat on him!!!!! =)

    Also a non - conformation related point. You stirrups are too short for a dressage saddle. It looks okay on but really I can't tell you anything unless I was there to see it. :)
