Yipes! I did think my horse was butt high, but now I see that I should be even more grateful for every 1/4" I watched her front end grow over the past year. On another note, I saw a horse out in a field once who was so unbelievably butt high, even more so than this guy, with a foal at its side. O.O

Is this your horse, OP? Nice pattern

I am here to learn! :)

I don't think it's quite as bad as the picture makes it look. It looks like the front hooves are down in a hole, but it's still pretty bad.

Oh, yeah. The worst part is training them at the lope until they get some level of collection going. When you first start loping them and they're all strung out, you feel about like the Man from Snowy River loping down that really steep hill LOL.

I think it said that he is 3.

ETA: This horse belongs to a trainer in my town.

One man's wrong lead is another man's counter canter.
