He looks like he flexes nice and soft! Looks quiet enough. Beautiful boy!

He looks nice,

To me in the first few photos he looks like he has a goosbum and pencil neck but that could be due to he seems to be lacking a bit of topline and is quite light on for my taste. (but his thoroughbred trust me i know how hard they are to put wieght on let alone keep it there). Id just try to bulk up a but more, it will help all over! His jump is quite flat and un-cordinated but practise makes perfect. In the photos with you in the pony club uniform he looks well musceld through the chest and crest compared to the others, he has a beautiful eye. Quite a nice trot, he looks well carried through the front and well balnced. He deffinatley looks quite! I dont think i could do dress up on any of my horses! He looks kind and willing. I like him.

Hope thats what you wanted... :)

He looks really nice doing flat work. The picture you provided of him jumping is a really akward photo so by that pic is in not a very pretty sight but that just may be a bad shot of him

Thank you all so much! (:
Yes is he lacking muscle as he was a rescue horse, and we just took him out of a paddock and started teaching him new things.
I will find a better picture of him jumping but that was his 2nd show, but i never noticed the flat jump, but now looking at it I really can!


QUESTION; how do you add pictures in this box. AHAHA.

He looks very nice doing flat work, nothing new to ad. Agreed that he could use some muscling up and I'll second his jump is flat and un-coordinated.

The first thing I noticed is his rider (you?) could lean back, un-hollow lower back, relax, toes down and relax legs.
