- well balanced, pleasing to look at
-hind foot steps over the front track, means it would be a good stopper
- sloped shoulder
- high withers
- short back, a good length in hip
-deep flank
And depth in girth
- you don't want it to look like a grey hound dog.
- long fore arm, short cannon bone, medium pasturn
- not a real wide chest
Hope this helps :)

You just wrote off most of the Hollywood Dun Its. Many are round backed, shallow in the heart, 3 or 4 inches lower at the withers than at the hip and defy all 'old' conformation standards. They just WANT to be reiners and are very good at it.

Hmm I feel like a lot of reining bred horses are actually mutton withered too. Look at Spooks Gotta Gun. He's a bit down hill and has practically no wither.

Lol what Cherie said :) basically

Haha my guy is a reiner, specifically bred from a well known reining stud....he has A wither, but it's low and he's wide in the shoulders.....and he is very slightly down hill! Haha! Kept me awake at night trying to find a reining saddle with full bars to fit him without going custom and breaking the bank!

Oh my! I need the tail too! My guy is a sorrel....therefore from my experience not very good hair! His tail is like dental floss! I braid it up, atleast it makes his butt look bigger! I never thought I would consider a fake tail....but everytime I unbraid his tail.....I sigh and quickly braid it back up!
