What do you think of my horse?

Ok so I have done this boy before but I have some slightly better pictures then last time even though he was fidgeting. Sorry for being being a bit dirty its hard to keep him clean with all the mud. Anyway just wanted your thoughts on his conformation and (if you can tell) what sort of riding you think he might be suited for. I have been trying to put weight on him but he just doesnt seem to budge from what he is at the moment. I am also working on his topline. Thanks

He has a very straight back & topline, therefore he's high in the withers & flat in the croup area.
He needs ALOT more muscling, especially to his neck. He also looks kind of "posty" in his back legs.
I like his shoulder & front legs though & he has a lovely head ;)

Hi,
I would get him onto Weightlifter. If you email them they will give you a free diet program. Its great for topline and putting on weight without getting them to fizzy. I highly reccomend it.

I had a gelding that was bought up on Weightlifter from a 2 year old till 5 year old. He won a few Res National titles are it all a credit to Weightlifter. Oh..and alot of elbow grease from me..lol...
Cheers Belle
