What do you all think of his conformation? Any critique accepted. Does he have potential in English flat classes? As of now we show western pleasure and trail.

Not great photos for critique, but from what I can see he is pretty nicely put together and doesn't look (or act) his age. He appears to have a nice shoulder, but perhaps a bit long backed. Nevertheless for 23 he looks super.

I tried to watch the video, but can't really tell much about his movement for English from it... A video of him trotting and cantering in a more relaxed manner will give a better assessment. I'm not sure what you were trying to do with him in the video?

Anyways... Nice looking boy! If you want to take some better photos, not from an angle and with his head forward we can give a more complete conformation critique.

he is a nice horse, nicely built.

he did not like the way you were "chasing " his hindquarters in that video.

I will defiantly try to get better pics, and I was doing the downunder horsemanship lunging for respect with him but he has a stubborn streak so he was being a brat lol.

Thank you, and yes he isn't a big fan of lunging I don't anymore I just ride him on trail or in the ring for exercise and if I have to I free lunge in the round pen.

He looks great for his age! Love me some senior horses:)

Senior citizen horses don't get a critique from me, I am not worthy to judge such a regal animal. He is handsome, dignified, and still cruising!
