And I, for one, definitely think that conformation ALOT to do with what and how well a horse can perform. A post legged, straight hocked horse will never make a reiner without breaking down.
Being a trail mount you don't have to get as particular, but you still want something that isn't going to end up lame from stress from having crooked legs or too long a back.
I very much agree with this, however, I've seen instances where a horse looked horrible. It was nothing more than very bad hoof care and poor feed coupled with complete lack of exercise. I'm just saying that a good vet or experienced outsider should look at this horse.
