Critique Ace
Here is my horse, an 8 year old 15.3 hand Quarter horse gelding. He does hunter under saddle, and a little bit of western pleasure and jumping.
This picture does not do him justice, but it's what I had of him standing nicely.

Here is a front view.
His feet were long here, he was due for the farrier.

I love Everything about him. May be just a tad butt high with long pasterns.

Like red said, butt high, maybe a tad steep in the crop, and it looks like he toes out just a bit on his right fore.

Overall, I like him. He has a nice shoulder and love the way his neck ties in. Very nice horse.

He's a little tinsy bit toed out in the front, his topline could be more developed but looks pretty good.

His front pastern/shoulder angles aren't the same but the back pastern/shoulder angle is.. which is interesting. I like his hip, he is a bit butt high.. nicely muscled neck, may be pigeon breasted.

(I'm just practicing since I'm new to this)

All of that aside, I like him. He seems really sweet and probably a pretty good mover in the hunters ring :)

Cute face! Aside from other things mentioned, he is a little narrow in the chest for my liking. However, he does not seem knock-kneed or the like, so it probably does not affect him.

Anything else?

He's a little narrow in the chest for my taste in quarter horses, but hey - everyone has their own likes and dislikes. But, that aside, he's a very nice horse, and I simply agree with the majority of what was said before me. However, a lot of QHs that I've known were a little high in the rump, so don't stress about that. :P
