Show Prospect...?


This is High Sky Hillbilly... I am thinking about showing him this year. He is a Quarab, 15.1hh and rising 10. These photoes was of him when he got pulled out of the paddock. So yeah in saying that, he looks a little bit rough . But I guess I just want to know your opinion on his conformation, and overall show prospect.. Thank you in advance

Just ask for more pictures

It's really hard to tell by the pictures. What are you planning to show him in?

Showing as in Hacking :) Also Rider Class. I will update with more photoes in the next week. Thank you for your response

Those pictures I can't really tell if he's show potential or not. To me any horse who loves his trainer is show potential with hard work.

Yes I agree diamonr4eva :) Just wondering what you think of him, and his overall potential... Like his conformation, and appearance... He has only done Dressage and Pony Club. :P

Thanks.. here are some more pictures..

More pictures to come.. :)

That last picture is a little better than most of them. To me he's a little cow hocked. I'm not really good at conformation so i'll let somebody else pass me up on that. He's a very cute horse and I think with hard work he'll be show prospect.

The full body shot is a lot better than the first two for conformation!
Cute horse, somethings I noticed were...
His back is a bit short, and his neck is a bit long.
I'm not great at conformation yet, but I think his face is really cute. I also love his coloring.

I think his back is fine and his neck is definitely not to long. I do think that his hindquarters are a little small, from the last pic. However its just my opinion

Thanks mell :) Yes his hindquarters are small, he defintally took after the arab side there!! . I think his back is good, I don't think its to short!! And his neck isnt long, I think its just the picture...

But thanks for your comments!!

As far as his back and neck go I think he's well put together. He does look a tiny bit small in the hindquarters but not so much that it makes him look funny :) I think he's bewdiful
