Critique him as potential eventer
Here is my 17.1H Oldenburg gelding.
What is your opinion of him? Would you consider him for lower-level eventing?
For pictures of him doing dressage, go here: LakeOswegoHunt-Feb-2-Dressage_show_Pictures | pages 13 through 16
Sorry, but how would I upload pictures from my computer that are not pictures on the internet?
click go advanced and then you can upload them from there. click manage attachments, it lets you upload one at a time.
Here are the pictures.
Honestly, your best bet is just trying him out at it and seeing how he does.
In what I can see, I'll say this:
- His pasterns look too straight for my taste
- He hangs his knees over jumps (the first pic really worries me)
- His shoulder is pretty nice looking
- The headset isn't quite there for dressage yet, but that can be fixed
Anyways, good luck with him! He looks like a lovely horse.
Here are some more pictures from tonight.
horse has a super kind eye. Lovely expression in every single picture. However, he's built kinda'... well... funny. Doesn't seem to have much of a natural talent for jumping, however he does look like he probably has some pretty nice gaits and, with right training and muscling, could probably have a huge ground covering trot and an equally lovely canter.
He looks nice, but he stands as if he is not comfortable on his hooves.
Here is a video of him jumping.
i really like him ! to me he is not hanging his legs at all, hes just not really jumping over that small fence. you can tell that hes already getting ready to land, does not worry me at all. looks like he could be better muscled and he needs work setting back on his hind end. his jumping form will look better when he is off his forehand and in front of your leg.
Feel free to critique my position as well.
