They would most likely, but if you are wondering what is perfect look at the breeders guide for APH it will tell you exactly what is the standard and what would fault you

He has 2 scars on his legs one on each front leg. Ones a little one 2cm by 2 cm and another he just got in december that's about 2in by 1cm and they don't seem to bug him. Would those count against me? also he's really really sensitive with his face (nose, lips, chin, muzzle) he's pink skined with an apron face. He will walk next to me with an okay head. But wont pick up a trot and is okay pivoting (needs help) and when he backs he puts his head up. Any advise to get his head down? Pivoting? Trotting? And where to get a show halter and lead for a large headed horse? He's in large halters.

You asked if "those" would count against you in the same breath you had offered up the information about shin splints - not really sure why you are getting pissy with Ware's for commenting.

I am really curious as to what you are wanting in response to your post - as it seems the only response(s) you have offered to what has been posted thus far is to argue or sound defensive.........or is it just a personal issue you have with Ware's for some reason as she seems to be the only one you respond to....

I suggest finding a trainer who can work hands-on with both you and your horse to identify the communication gaps and help to bridge them. They can work "real time" with you both so that what they suggest can be evaluated right then for effectiveness and another method tried if that fails -- that is something you don't have the benefits of here online.

I agree, I would also say check into tack or items that can correct your horse's leg, or other conformational flaws, many things can be repaired or helped

horses, paints, showing
