Agreed, and it depends on what kind of person you are. For me, I'd rather hear it.

Also have to take note that sometimes certain people may know what they're breeding/looking at, and it may be what they want. Like that stallion, he strikes me as a typical Halter horse... And I haven't checked his bloodline yet but I bet he traces back to Impressive... A lot of them do sadly...
Here's a couple I found just by typing QH Halter horse into my browser:

It wouldn't suprise me if this yearling winds up as something similar either :/

Oh dear. Can we get a couple things straight? There is no way to tell a N/H horse from an N/N horse by looking at it, only by blood test can tell you. I've seen huge halter champions who are N/N and I've seen hunter horses who have N/H. So it is very rude to run around calling a big halter horse N/H without seeing its papers (But KCS is N/H, so we know that). I have an Impressive bred mare who is N/N.



That was Impressive, who was an Appendix quarter horse. The disease “HYPP” was not officially named until 1992 - 23 years after Impressive was born and had sired many offspring.

I don't really agree with having a thread called "worst examples of conformation" used to bash halter horses and spread bad information about HYPP. If people are willing to pay $5000 stud fee to breed to KCS, then they will. And I'm sure these kinds of people are not on Horseforum, sorry to say... But ya'll can carry on.

This mare was ridden way too early and bareback- her sway is further up on her spine (where youd sit bareback) she is in no discomfort or pain and has even foaled with out problem. Her filly was born 'normal'.. the people we rescued her from were riding her every day with a throw pillow and a regular pillow under a big pad. She didnt mind it- but it does look bad, I guess..

Not to bash on her conformation-- just because I saw a horse that was born with the swayed back disease.. this is just a different case..


I also agree with, oh vair oh-- this thread seems like it can get pretty mean pretty quickly.. seemed kinda rude so I clicked it-- can't lie, lol.

On my phone, so I'll have to pics later. But I honestly don't see an issue with this thread. It's no different than the "worst for sale ads". So if one gets closed, they both should. That one could probably be renamed as "worst attempts at selling the worst conformation."

OV, I don't think this has turned into an Impressive bashing. There's just as many examples of others aswell.

Sure there have been posts of misconceptions, but wouldn't this be a great chance to clarify those? I believe the OP made the statement about helping a rookie buyer distinguish between good & bad. There's nothing wrong with Impressive, dwarfism, etc, but those things need to be addressed, don't they?? Especially to those who don't have the experience to deal with any complications that might come up?

Yes, there are going to be some rude comments. So the best we can do is try to keep the purpose of the thread in mind, when all we really want to say is "WTF is THAT???"

I promise I'll get pics of some REALLY good examples of terrible confo that you guys can rip to shreds up later:)

I'm on the fence with this thread, but feel that so long as people are able to keep to the topic of showing bad conformation rather than dissing it, it could be good.

So here's an addition I just found.



Yes, it's a halter QH, but there's no denying the funkiness of those hind pasterns.

How could this thread even be compared to 'dumbest horse for sald ads' thread? Those are silly craigslist ads..


I can see this thread turnin into someone not likin somethin someone said on the forum and their horse endin up here out of meanness.


I just feel like we all know what bad conformation is- if someone was worried about buying a horse with bad conformation they could head on over to the conformation critic thread and post a picture of the horse in question- or even have a look at the conformation guide they have posted as a sticky.. this thread is just pushin it too far.

Why do we need this thread when we have this.. Conformation Tutorial

Is that not good enough to explain conformation?


This thread is not 'showing' beginners what not to look for in a horse.. its to make fun of horses.. they didnt choose to have poor conformation- its mean.. we don't go around making fun of people with mental illnesses --why make fun of the creatures we "love" so much because theyre not perfect? Its just wrong!
