Overall I think he is really cute. He is little downhill and a little camped under himself, but still cute. As far as him having a long back, I don't see it, which would also rule out him having a long body. As far as the muscle tone goes, it's been a long cold winter in MN, and if you don't have an indoor (not sure if you do) then it makes it a little difficult to get a decent workout in. Truthfully though, I think he looks pretty good. Summer is coming and with that comes more riding! Good luck!

He does stand under himself, which is good and means that he is balanced. He is built pretty decently. I think he would make a good barrel/pole horse. He also looks like he would make a cow horse. I know that you probably dont do those things, but thats probably what he has the most potential for.

I do barrels/poles a little bit, but just starting out basically trying to figure it out as we go. We do some team penning too. He seems to enjoy it all once he starts figuring it out. I pretty much like to do everything with horses, I'm one of my few friends that isn't discipline predjudice (spelling?) The last time we did poles we trotted out & started cantering back, but got a little ahead of ourselves.. hehe it was pretty funny. People said we looked good out there though, even if we were only trotting!

I disagree with some other people, i personally think he would be great at hunter/jumper and may also have potential in dressage. However, he looks like he has a bit of a straight shoulder, and either a sloped back or high withers. That means before he gets deep into training, and gets the correct muscle in the correct places etc etc, it will be a rough ride. Also, im not so sure about his little feet, but he is very cute! good luck with him.

p.s. I dont know what you have done with him already (already started jumping, etc?) so im sorry if i made myself sound stupid. lol.

I haven't done anything with him yet, just some really basic games and trails. I'm trying to fill the holes in his training, but its been a very long time since I've done any sort of training for a horse (now if it was a dog... ). Right now I'm working on groundwork and conditioning him, after the long winter he has gotten disrespectful/worried, out of shape, & full of oats. After that, I'm not really sure where to start so I'm sure I will be on here asking questions on where to start!

Oh I love him! Sush a unique colour, he sure is a looker. He looks very well balanced, and a good weight, I would just say like others that a little conditiong would work wonders. He sure is going to be a stynner when he's in condition and shedded out!
