    He does have a slightly sunken back he is 16 and was broken in with (and ridden in since) a silla vaquera which is quite heavy that's what I think that is from.

    I agree with the sunken back. His front pasterns seem to be a bit straight. I think it's the angle but his neck seems to be thick too.

    1st of all he is very cute. Second of all it drives me crazy when people do not post info like breed and age. Is he gaited? Alot of gaited horses do not look very appealing standing around but when moving it is a different story. His legs look a little short for his body and his front end is heavier but depending on breed that may be a characteristic

    Well that's the thing I have stated alot of times on here (i know everyone will not know) but I live in rural spain and breed is not the 1st thing that people ask about and 90 percent of horse owners don't even know 50 percent of there horses breeds lol I've just learnt to live with it.

    All churumbeque was trying to say was we cannot give you an accurate conformation critique if we do not know your horse's breed, age helps, but it's not totally needed.

    Breeds are built differently, what is good for one breed may be bad for another. It also helps is we know what you use him for. Jumping, dressage, pleasure..etc. We look for certain things for each purpose, and what may be bad for jumping, may not matter for pleasure.

    Your horse is very cute by the way.
    P.S. The 'sunken back', also referred to as a Sway Back, can be either conformational, progressional, or both. Some horses are born with them and they can get worse with time by heavy riders/saddles. Or they can be created with heavy weight and age.

    This horse looks like a Paso Fino, and has the hips of a gaited horse. He is a plump horse, and might I add ADORABLE Aside from the fact his pasterns are practically non-existent, I think he looks good. :) His mane is gorgeous. Que lindo!
