Best Conformation For Equestrian Sports
I haven't seen a thread like this one, so I figured I would start one. We have all seen how drastically different horse breeds can be (Clydesdale vs Arabian) - even horses of the same breed (barrel bred QH vs cutting bred QH). My question is what conformation makes a horse 'built' for a sport. Ignore the horses's drive to do it (let's just say every example horse we come up with WANTS to do said sport).
I mean, for example - good barrel racers tend to be downhill and have very powerful hindquarters. Jumpers tend to be uphill and have longer legs.
Here is a list of every discipline I could think of, feel free to add any I missed. Just add to the sport you have the best experience in, or know the most about.
Cowboy Mounted Shooting
Driving (any sub-catagory of it)
Halter (this one can be a very broad subject)
