My new event prospect

He's only four years old, he isn't scared of a thing, and he's finally a horse of mine that loves to jump!

What do you think?

I think he's really cute! He just needs some muscle toning, but I think he'd be a nice prospect to bring along. His throat latch seems clean, he's legs look decent. Good luck with him and let us know how it goes.

Thanks, I think so too. He's my trainers horse and was only bought as a baby to be a companion to another baby, but I think he's grown nicely. For his muscle tone, he's actually full of muscle! Not quite in the right places, but we'll work on that. He's very thick but little at the same time, I think I might have trouble fitting tack to him.

Looking at the pictures, it seems he needs more of his hind quarter area, it could just be the pictures but that's what I see.

Yeah, he's only ridden lightly about 4 times a week because he's so young. My trainer likes to build horses to their potential slowly, but once I start really trying to ride into him coming spring I think he'll tone up more. I'll definitely post pictures once he's in more work.

Wow, he looks like you just flipped the pic, haha. Both sides have very similar markings. What's his name?

His name is Skittles and I'm making his show name Barefoot Truth (he's barefoot, haha). He's 15hh - He is super cute huh? He honestly has the best coat and best feet I've ever seen on a horse personally. He's so happy and healthy.

He does seem thick but I don't see that as an issue personally. I love his colouring and markings! He looks like he has a great humour about him. I bet he'll be lots of fun! I love brave horses!
