Critique TB for lower level eventing
Hey all! Tear yourselves away from Rolex coverage :lol: and critique this guy for eventing up through training level. He is an 8yoa TB gelding, 16'1" who has shown 3' - 3'3" jumpers and BN events. Thanks!
Rather nice looking horse, actually.
Nice shoulder and his neck set isnt bad either.
Good depth of girth.
Can't find anything glaringly wrong with his front legs.
Back is a little long.
Hindquarters could use muscle but seem fairly well-rounded.
Back legs are a tad cowhocked but otherwise reasonably conformed. Maybe the tiniest bit sickled, but nothing major enough to warrent any concern ;)
Thanks! I was worried about his back a little, but am hoping it could be improved with work. Anyone else? Thoughts?
Well, seeing as SJ isn't on for half an hour....;-)
I like him a lot. Depending on his movement, you could probably do some hunter shows on him as well. Nice shoulder, slightly long back, and straight legs....hind end could be a little stronger. Nice length of neck, which ties in pretty well.
I can't add more than what has been said, but I'll repeat- he's a very good looking horse. :)
agree the midsection is a bit long, more so on the underside through the barrel than the back so topline work could keep him strong. i think the neck tie in is a tad low for jumping/dressage but sounds like he's performing fine and for lower levels it wouldn't be a problem. handsome boy!
