I would say the first one. He seems well put together and something about him jumped out at me when I opened the pic. If I was in the market for another horse at the moment that kind of feeling would have me running out to buy him asap :) the second ones back looks too short to me. He looks all squished up :P I was trying to picture a saddle on him and could visualise the back of it almost sitting on his rump

The second one could also be a little straight in the shoulder too which doesnt add to the whole look. To be honest, I think the second one is quite unattractive and not well conformed. But that's my opinion :)

Are you still looking for a horse? Because I think I might know one that would suit.

Definitely the second one. The shorter backed the better, the first one would fall apart on a heavyweight rider. The second one is extremely strong looking.

Yes, I'm still looking but I'm not in any hurry at the moment.

Unfortunatly, when I contacted the owners of the two horses they told me both had already been sold so i'm just browsing at the moment. Like I said i'm in no hurry. I want the right horse for the right price.

are you still looking for a horse? Because I think I might know one that would suit.
Could you message me the details of the horse? Eg height, age, breed,experience etc.

Well regardless of the fact that the horses were sold it was interesting to read peoples opinions on which was the preferred horse I thought. I was so certain about which one I liked better I just assumed everyone would agree, apparently not, lol which is good makes life more interesting.

How is your casual horse hunt going? Found anything else you would like us to criteque? I was quite enjoying it.

Ok, I have found a horse I am almost cetain I am going to buy but I thought I'd see what you guys think.
He was reccomended to me by the lady I usually ride for in endurance. She thinks this horse would be perfect for me so 'm seriously considering her advice.

This is a 8yo 15.2hh gelding. It's not the best pic so sorry for that but it's the only pic I have.

:o He is nice! Love his markings, although he is alil cowhocked. But he looks big boned and pretty hardy. He should be excellent for endurance!! :P

I think he looks cow hocked in that pic cause of the way he's standing. He looks as if he's started to turn when they took the pic so he hadn't staightened his legs around properly.

He looks alright to me, a bit hard to tell from the photo though. Have you ridden him? I think that is the best way to decided whether he is the perfect horse for you. I really think that if you get along and enjoy each others company and spend the time starting him out that any little problems can be overcome anyway.

I haven't ridden him yet but I will be as soon as the owners get back from their holiday in 2 weeks. I can't wait! And I agree about trying him first which is why i'm leaving my final judgement until I ride him.
