My boy is slightly cow hocked and downhill. Doesn't bother me at all. We do trail riding, basic dressage and basic jumping - he has a bit of hard time to stretch his hind legs beneath himself, but it's not a big deal to me. I'm not competitive anyway and his build is good for driving, which is something I hope to start soon.

I'd consider a lot of things for the right horse. In a way conformation is my last priority because I would immediately turn down a bad or undesired temperament or unsuitable training. My horse now isn't perfect he's pigeon toed at the front, a tad bum high but in other ways heb so suitable.

I don't do anything fancy with my mares, so I overlook their faults. My draft mare has shark withers, slight sickle hocks and is a touch tied at the knee. My filly's neck looks like a llama neck. But we don't show, we do pleasure riding and trails - the most we'd do is fun shows. Anything I have planned for us doesn't require perfect confo so I'm quite happy with both.

conformation, faults, thoughts
