I remember one case of one horse here who looked like he could be in this convo, and we all told her not to jump him, I'd like to think that horse isn't being jumped because of the info given here.

If my horse looked like this, and I didn't know, I'd want to know. I might not want to hear it, but I need to.
I agree with this. I didn't start this thread to ridicule others. It is for newbies to know what NOT to look for in a horse, and maybe the owner of one of these horses will come across this and think about why their poorly conformed horse is at stud.

OV, I don't think this has turned into an Impressive bashing. There's just as many examples of others aswell.

Sure there have been posts of misconceptions, but wouldn't this be a great chance to clarify those? I believe the OP made the statement about helping a rookie buyer distinguish between good & bad. There's nothing wrong with Impressive, dwarfism, etc, but those things need to be addressed, don't they?? Especially to those who don't have the experience to deal with any complications that might come up?

Yes, there are going to be some rude comments. So the best we can do is try to keep the purpose of the thread in mind, when all we really want to say is "WTF is THAT???"

I promise I'll get pics of some REALLY good examples of terrible confo that you guys can rip to shreds up later:)

I don't know how to rename a thread, but if a mod comes across this, feel free to rename it. It is just like the dumbest horses for sale thread. It can get mean, but people enjoy looking at it. I know I have learned a few things from that thread, and maybe others and myself can learn something from this one.

Lol, Jalter, you know i like ya- so i hope ya dont take it to heart..



i disagree with this thread. If people are breeding these kinds of horses thats not any of our business -its theirs!



We have a conformation critic thread already where people can post pictures of the horse in question and get several honest good opinions on that specific horse.


We even have a how to on conformation criticism.



If i wanted to give some good advice to someone that dont know much about horses and is lookin to buy one it would be-- take an experienced equestrian with you- dont settle for the first horse you see (try out many)- ask for cogins shot records and bill of sale.

ok I have been reading a lot about how people are disagreeing with this thread. I am not great at conformation and I found it interesting, the only thing I would add would be if someone could point out the issues with the pictured horses. I mean some of them were very obvious but others although they looked odd I was not sure exactly was wrong with them.

Which one would you like clarified? And I agree; When you post a picture, point out what is wrong with the conformation, or say something like 'something looks odd, I can't tell what, can someone point it out?'

I agree. Some are obvious. Some look totally off to me but I don't know why. I also don't see why people are getting so upset about this thread - unless it turns to flat out insults "X user's horse has X problem, nobody should want that, it won't amount to anything" or "This horse is just plan crappy" or posting a user's horse just for spite type thing I don't see a problem with it. I find it interesting to see the extremes of conformational faults - as long as the pictures are publicly out there, no reason not to compile some of them in one place.

Exactly. Rule one of the internet; never post a picture (even on a private facebook account) that you do not want to get out. The pictures never truely go away.

Something is up with the colts hind legs, but I can't quite figure out what. Middle one is dramatically downhill. Third one, I don't honestly see anything that jumps out at me. He is a bit lanky, but that doesn't seem to be a big issue in my opinion (someone correct me if I am wrong).
