Hi there!
Wondering if you could share your experiences with this type of conformation?
Also: Did I 'draw the lines' correctly?
What would you want to 'do' with this horse instead of Dressage (discipline)?

He is a 7 year old gelding, 17.2 hands, not currently in full training.
I appreciate your honest and knowledgeable opinions.
:)
Thanks in advance!!

To me he looks like a Hunter (as in Hunter Undersaddle, or field hunter) or maybe low level eventing, rather than a dressage horse. Though that would depend on his jumping ability. I like his bone, solid boy, looks dependable, what I would look for if I was after a field hunter, though most likely he could turn a hand at anything.

These opinions are from a NZ point of view and I don't know what the equivalent where you are, if you aren't NZ would be :)

Also does he have clydie in him? What is his breed?

Hey thanks for the opinion!
He's a Thoroughbred - Shire Cross :)
Fun guy for sure but also a hand full sometimes ;) !!
We're in the U.S. (California) and yea the same is true here I'm sure.
Thanks again!

The pic's a big grainy, but he appears to be slightly roach-backed and high in the wither. All 4 legs look ok, though more pictures would be helpful for a better judgement.
