I am horrible at confo critique and I know nothing about western horses but the underside of his neck is really over developed. Maybe that's the way barrel horses need to use themselves but if not I would really work on his top line, getting him to use himself better.

He's a bit butt-high, & I agree. Working on the topline would be good!! :)
I'd like to see some more muscles (groundwork & hillwork is good for that) but otherwise he is very cute!! Nice boy you got there.

Ride more, worry less.

His back legs are poorly built. His hooves are way too far under him. His neck needs conditioning and his butt peaks and slopes far too sharply to the dock of his tail.

What do you mean by poorly built? i ride alot but i nothing of conformation!
but i am learning!!!

not his feet do appear under him a little but he is kinda on a hill at that tree..i wish i had someone to hold him for me but i rode alone that day

is his legs poorly built cause they dont make a straighter line from the top of his rump to the hoof? thats always what it looked like to me.

I just want to say he's super gorgeous. I love his look.

I dont know much about conformation though so I wont critique.

Basically his back legs are not a straight as I would like to see them. You should be able to draw a straight line from his rear to the ground and his legs should match up nicely with that line. His are too far underneath him.

I'm glad you're learing alot here! :)
