3 Attachment(s)
Hi! This is my leased APHA gelding, Jack. We have been working on weight gain, and now focus on putting some muscle on him. We show english at local fun/ schooling shows. I always enter him in halter classes just for kicks, and am wondering if you guys can tell me what we still need to work on. Also id like a basic conformation critique so i know what i am working with. Thank you!!!

Forgot to mention, he looks young but he is seven. So no more "filling out". :)

Wow-- im jealous! Hes sooo good looking. Nothing really sticks out to me-- nothing bad anyway-- too much good for me to name.. lol.

How does he usually place?

I'm not going to critique his conformation but I think he looks very nice!

Thank you! Hes usually places, which i am happy about bc hes not a 'halter horse'. I would love him even if he wasnt cute, because he just tries so darn hard to please his rider. Never any disagreeing out of this boy. Any tips on where to put more muscle? Does he need it?

He is a walking muscle, lol. :-P

I like him how he is to be honest.

I said in the title that he was six but then said seven. I should clarify that his birthday is at the end of the month and i had just remembere! :)

This was him in september before project weight gain...

I think he looked good then-- why operation weight gain?

Thank you for the compliments!! His owner got a complex about him being ribby. I figured if she is going to start feeding him a ton i should start lunging and conditioning him so he doesnt get fat. Anyone else have a confo critique for me?
