what is you thoughts on this horse

so what do you think, he is a standard bred 15.3 and 14yrs. I know he has no top line but what else? When we brought him he had done no work and was in a very small flat yard for 12 months. He was also very skinny.

The one thing that jumped at me was his extremely straight shoulder, which will inhibit forward movement, specifically extension.
His neck is fairly low-set as well, and he has a pigeon chest.

I love his coloring though! Does he have any markings on his face, or is he a solid bay?

JustDressage, I always wondered how you define "straightness" of the shoulder?

I think he has lovely color!

Very straight shoulder and very straight neck. Stands under himself on the front end. Hocks look a bit strange to me. From the picture looks like has a roman nose. Front end is much heavier then the hind end. Which causes a horse to be more likely to move off the forehand. Straight almost hallow backed. But its hard to see because of the saddle. Has a kink in its neck before it hits the withers, which is typical of a ewe neck, but rather, your horse has a straight neck. Head ties into the neck nicely. Chest sticks out way too much. Love the color, I have always found brown's rather appealing

his shoulder looks a bit odd, but his coloring is beautiful!

The red line illustrates this horse's shoulder, the green line represents the "ideal" slope to the shoulder.

His coloring is very nice, but the shoulder looks a bit odd to me. ;)

Success comes a [bit] at a time.
