the second horse i am looking to turn into a hunt seat horse if i can get him to calm down. the first horse is my ex-jumper. he now suffers from navicular. hence the lack of muscle.. he hasnt been working much at all. and the second one is starting to get worked and build muscle. he lounged for 30 mins today, every second of it he was fighting me. he is six and just now i have broken him to ride. so we have come a long way!

I thought it was the same horse too!

30 minutes might be pushing it. Lunging can be hard on their joints.

There's no real difference between the canter or the trot. It's the whole circle motion that is hard on the joints.

First horse:

Steep shoulder. Long back. Feet need to see a farrier, his toes look really long. The underside of his neck does look over developed and there is a lacking of a top line.


Second horse:

Steep shoulder. Longish pasterns.

that picture really does make the forst horses feet look super long. but i can assure you they arent that long. his bar shoes that he has on make him look like his toes are long. he doesnt have a good confo probably another reason for him having navicular
