    Actually, he's not sickle hocked. Sickle hocked is when the hock angle is too closed. He's the opposite: post legged -his hock angle is too open (straight). He's camped under though (as many post legged horses are) and that's why he is standing a little too much under himself.

    Same thing as others have said. Downhill. A little thick in the throatlatch.

    Nice horse though! Cute mover. Should make a nice little hunter.

    He's a cutie. Just wondering, is this horse to lease or buy?

    He's mainly for sale but they would lease if on property. I'm not too sure as I really wanted to board elsewhere but if he's THE one than I'd make an exception. :]

    Super cute!! Have you ridden him yet? That could be the clincher. And, if he has just about everything you're looking for in a horse, then that says a lot. I was just reading an article about jumper conformation, and it said not to put too much emphasis on conformation as many times it's the personality and heart that matter. You could get a horse with perfect jumper conformation who isn't willing and ends up being a worse jumper than one with some faults. You just never know. Anyway, that perspective sounded logical to me so I thought I'd share. I'm also horse shopping, and for a jumper, and the more I look (and the opinions I get) the more I realize that it is the horses personality and how you get along that should be a good part of your decision. He looks like a really nice ride, he's cute, and looks willing and relaxed. Let us know what you decide!!

    Aubrey seems like a great horse but I don't think we're going to go see him. I was just talking to a really good friend who owns a small barn around here and she said she has plenty of horses that need to be ridden and possibly one she would love to lease out to me if I was interested. So for now I think that's what I'm going to do. I'm also not sure I'd be doing as much showing as his owner would like, she keeps saying how great of a show horse he'll be and I'm much less about that than I am just riding for fun.
