Jumpers bump?

I'm fairly good with conformation, but still haven't problems pick out a "jumpers bump" (I think that's the right name for it)
I was looking at pictures of Sonny and kinda thought maybe he had one...but it might just be the way he was standing or just me in general haha

What do you think?


In some of his pictures it seems like he does, but others it doesn't

Also what causes jumper bump? Is it actually from jumping or is it just a plain old conformational defect from birth like most?

Since a Hunter's Bump (or Jumper's Bump) is in the hidquarter, the stance of the horse can make it "appear" and "disappear" - I.e. If the horse is standing unevenly, and not square, it can make conformation faults stand out more, and make some things appear there but they're not.
Can you take a picture from the rear, and see if his hips are uneven?
Personally I don't see a hunter's bump on your horse, but that's just me - and I haven't dealt with horses with hunter's bumps, so I might be completely out to lunch.

Your horse doesn't have one. Its not what you would call a conformation fault really, as a horse isn't born with one: hunters bump or jumpers bump is injury related.

No bump. It's much more obvious than that. If you saw one in person you'd recognize it immediately.

It's the result of ligament damage.

I'm sorry if I gave the impression it was a conformation defect, I know it's caused by ligament damage.. I was just saying that certain "poses" exaggerate faults.

Hehe, I totally understand, just wanted to make sure everyone was on the same page since this thread was in critique instead of health

Hunter bumps are not always that obvious. My horse has one but it's very slight. But I have a friend who's horse has a very pronounced hunter bump
