Conformation Critique?
88 Attachment(s)
Hi guys :)

Just wondering what you all think of my 3 year old's conformation..

He is a little bum high at the moment as he is still growing. He is currently around 16.1-16.2 expected to mature 17hh

Thanks everyone :)

We'd need a photo without tack to give any real kind of critique.

Attractive fellow. He has a very short back with strong coupling. Croup is a bit short and steep. Hind leg is posty (more obvious in the under saddle photo) Shoulder layback as moderate. Excellent substance of bone. Neck is a bit thick and ties in low at the chest, but high at the withers. Pasterns short and strong appearing. He has a nice presence about him.

He's niiiiiiice. Bit straight through the back leg but otherwise I love him. Showed him to my mother, she wants him. You're lovely and slender but he could easily be a weight carrier. He looks like a very solid using horse and I think will be nicely suited to low to mid level dressage. With the upright hind leg he won't be a top GP horse but should do well enough. He may also jump, but then again he may be too hefty to jump.

If he's 16.1 to 16.2, how tall are you?! O.o

Thanks Guys :)
He is a Clydesdale X Thoroughbred and was in disgraceful condition (photo attached) when purchased him as a yearling full of rain scald, lice feet never been touched, didn't know what hard feed was, wormey and the lest goes on.. Let alone could I touch him without a front foot being thrown at me :( so I am pretty happy with how his conformation and nature has turned out.

I am 5'9 but with very long legs :oops:
He is on the solid side of the scale already, Although very light on his feet with a lovely floating, balanced and uphill canter especially for a breaker, he really brings his back end underneath him and really uses it.

He has been free jumped and he LOVES it as he takes himself over it :lol:
I attached a few more photo's :) (sorry photo overload)
Thanks again

Nice job, good looking horse rmaree.

Oh he uses himself nicely over fences. Can I have him for eventing? Please?? He may not be quick enough for upper level eventing but that croup and hip screams jumping, as does his shoulder. But he shouldn't not be turned to dressage, he's just too lovely. What are your plans for him??
