I'm curious to see what people think about my horse's conformation. I know most of his faults, but I'm curious to see if there's anything I missed. ^^ He's a 6 year old AQHA gelding and I do Hunter/Jumper with him. He jumps muchhh better than he moves btw!

Sorry for the picture quality in the first couple..

No critique on me riding please ^^

edit: Sorry if it stretches the board. It doesn't on mine, but I have a wide screen.

I like him. Other than him being cow-hocked and a little bit uphill I can't really see anything.

Oh, I missed that he's uphill. I like uphill horses better than downhill, so its all good

He is a little cow hocked, he's got a long back and he toes out. Those are the things I've noticed (for whatever reason, both of the front views don't show that as pronounced as it is xD)

Glad you like him ^^ Thanks for the critique!

I am no expert by any means.... Saying that... Nothing looks "off" about him at all. He looks like he moves really nice and smooth. I like his eyes, they are really soft. He looks to be happy, healthy, and is just all around beautiful.

I think you pretty much hit everything...though I don't know if I'd say his back is long or his legs are short! I think the angle of that first picture must be funny; his body and neck look proportionate, but I want more legs in that photo.

Oh my what a cutie!!! I love his face...he's SO cute!! A bit uphill & a bit cowhocked.
Other than that, he sure is gorgeous.

Ride more, worry less.
