Mustang Critique please!
 
I would like a few opinions on this 3 year old mustang's conformation. Do you think he would do well with basic dressage?

eek, they're showing up for me... I hope that isn't the case for everyone else. >_<

He looks quite straight through the shoulder to me but that may be the angle, they're not ideal really for critique. He should be ok at low level dressage.

No critiue execpt for EEEEEE Hes sooo cute! :)

Eolith 05-24-2010 03:10 PM

Yes, I was sort of wondering about that shoulder... his neck looks like it might be sort of shortish too, but I'm not sure. I love his topline for the most part however.

I'm glad you think he's cute Ella!

Basic dressage yes. I think he's really cute and don't see anything glaringly wrong with his conformation.
:]

He's far and away the best looking mustang I've seen. Where is he from? He looks like he's taller than most mustangs as well. I would think he can do whatever you are horseman enough to teach him.

I didn't think he had a straight shoulder, I must be measuring from the wrong part. I thought this was how to tell shoulder angle. I put yellow dots because I couldn't draw a straight line. If anyone could correct me I would really appreciate it!!

from the point of the shoulder to the crest of the withers

I don't think he has a straight shoulder.
Based off this picture below of another horse your mustang's shoulder angle leans more towards the 'ideal angle'.

I also agree that he'll be good for basic dressage.
