Maybe his hindquarters a little, but im not certain about the breed, so maybe they're just tiny like that? but WOW he's very flashy. Nice guy! what are his stats? height, training, age?

he is beautiful! if any thing i think he is just a little tiny bit thin. But other than that he looks good. his hind quarters are a little small but what are you plannin on doing with him. If your just planning on riding him flat then dont worry. Im assuming english...i wouldnt worry...nice horse!

Wow, he's BEAUTIFUL. Congrats! It looks like he's very well proportioned from what I can tell.

He looks pretty good to me. Very flashy. Is he dirty or does he have darker spots on his butt?

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

I think he could use a slightly more muscles hind end. His weight looks great - I find most saddle horses are too fat. What a beautiful horse!
