2006 Buckskin Morgan Gelding. Help?
 
4 Attachment(s)
This is my 6 year old purebred Morgan Gelding. What is his conformation like? I'm not very good at judging conformation. As well, how do you think he would do in barrel racing if I did it based on his conformation? I currently endurance ride him and we do extremely well. Based on his conformation, what sports does he look like he'd do really well at? I'm not going to ever quit endurance riding, but I've been really curious lately about his athletic abilities.Attachment 122110

I don't know if you need any more pictures of him to be able to say things, but tell me if you do, because I have a lot! :-)

Those pictures dont' give the kind of views that help us to make anything near an accurate critique of his conformation. I can see that he seems to have a rather long back and short neck. I don't know what things are good for barrel racing and what aren't , though. He certainly is majorly cute!

What kind of pictures do you need? And thanks!

Better summer pictures might help but his throat latch is very thick. I know someone with a Buckskin Morgan and they look nothing alike. If you hadn't of said Morgan I would not have picked that breed

There are 2 different types of Morgans. Those infused with Arabian blood, and those who are not. Yours is not, and honestly, I like the stockier Morgans better.

I did not see the Lippett type either but better photo's of horse in condition might make a difference.

Hes really pretty

Many people think he looks too stocky to be Morgan, but he's definitely a purebred. And I'll get some more pictures up soon from the summer, and during endurance season when he was in shape.

Here is another picture of him from this summer. He's not fully conditioned, he's only about half ways conditioned.
