    I really like him. He's a nicely balanced horse. I don't think he's too thin at all. I'd say go for it if you wanna try dressage. I've seen worse conformed horses do it.

    Just for the record...he doesnt strike me as a western pleasure horse at all. I think he'd make a nice all arounder.

    Thanks BuckOff, right now he basically is a trail horse w/ some games thrown in once in awhile (we're slow though because we don't have the patterns down & whatnot ). All said & done though he is a very light & responsive horse to ride "sensitive" is what we all call him which has its benefits....and detractions! LOL! But he is definitely a sweetie on the ground, but needs a rider who can reassure him a lot!

    FYI to everyone- I haven't ever ridden dressage and haven't jumped in over 15 years, so any of this that I would do with him would be VERY basic... and I wouldn't push him or expect anything wonderous out of him. Just for fun and to expand his and my skills together.

    I wouldn't say he was skinny at all...he has a nearly perfect body weight in my eyes. Just needs condiditoning.

    Yes, I agree! He has perfect body weight, I absolutly love how he is built. And he does need conditioning(one way to start building that up, is, troting, cantering and galopping up hills);)

    I agree. Just needs more muscle to fill him out a bit. :)

    The only thing I see is the lack of muscle...which I understand...my horse has no muscle! We're just going back into training after my pregnancy leave. Poor old fart thought he was retired Other than that he is a tad butt high. But again my horse is butt high and he is pretty good at dressage...he just has to try harder...as some of the movements aren't "natural"

    Well I do not know much about critiquing; but he is so pretty!
    And I say if you want to do dressage, go for it! If you want to do jumping, go for it! He looks a all-rounder I recently started jumping my QH recently and he is doing good! I'm sure Soda would do well too!

    Thanks everyone! Right now we are working on some groundwork & trust/respect issues, I think by the time we have that worked out it will hopefully be dried out enough that I can start conditioning him. I am looking for a stable in my area to take dressage and/or jumping lessons, so I will post pics of us riding later on in the year. Thanks again for all of your insite!!

    I would hardly say he is long backed or long bodied. He looks to be fairly balanced in his proportions.
