Please Critique George!

This is George...He is an American Warmblood. He is 4 years old, dark bay, 15.3hh

I love him to death but I want to see what you all think, he is being ridden hunters right now but we are thinking english and possibly western pleasure.

From what I see;

Nice topline, good, powerful shoulder and hip. Nice legs. Well put together neck, I like how it's attached to the body.

Needs to loose some weight around the midsection, looks a bit chubby. Looks like he also needs a trimming, but it could just be me.


Overall, pretty boy. I'd love to have a Warmblood someday...need to improve with my riding first, though xD

Wait! I'll fix it....

I think he's very nice. Not so good at critiquing though :)

What breeds were his parents? I am trying to figure it out by the pic!

You would be surprised...he is an arab/draft.
I don't think he looks drafty but some people do.
I like him :)

w.o.w. I guessed the draft part but I would never guess Arab! I only guessed draft x because of his large boned legs. My girl is 3/4 TB 1/4 Shire.

One of my friends has an Arab/Percheron who is an awesome eventer. Looks like your guy would make a cute eventer too!

Without seeing him move I can't tell you how suitable he is for hunters, but he's certainly a very pretty boy :) Nice straight legs, good proportions, very handsome!

To be loved by a horse should fill us with awe - for we have not deserved it.

I think he's gorgeous...I think he could probably go in any direction you wanted.

Unless he is registered AWS or AWR he is not an American Warmblood, he is a draft cross. Looks good enought to pass though.

He's a draft cross and not a Warmblood? I do have a pet peeve though. I have visions of squished feet when looking at this picture.

Are you absolutely sure you wanna mess with my carrots?

joshie- people definitley have a difference in opinion on the 'what is the definition of warmblood'. You'll really never get a straight answer!
