I've finally bought a horse, but he's coming in three weeks so these are the only photos I have of him from when I went to see him. Please critique him! He's a 7yo chestnut TB, about 15hh. I'm planning on doing eventing or dressage on him, maybe showjumping too.

Very nice! :) He looks athletic, though his forearms are a tad bit too short above the knee. He may have a hard time folding them up to jump nicely.

Well, he looks like he has good bone and heart depth and a relatively short back. he looks sturdy, like he'll stand up to the stresses of eventing.

He seems like a lovely kind boy - I really like him, and I am looking forward to seeing your updates on him - he is going to look great with time.
Have you been able to find out what his reg name was?

Yes, HalleysComet, his registered name is 'Rolling Heights'. He had about 6 starts as a racehorse but was too lazy, so his previous owners were competing in showjumping and hacking with him. I can't wait to start work with him!

If you want to come back and post again with better photos, then I will be more than happy to type up a critique for you.

Hope you don't mind, but I looked up for racing pictures of him (none were under his name, but under the winner's names and dates of the race).

Below are the links to pictures I found of him (Chestnut with Yellow/Pink/Purple silks)

They are not great photos, and in most you can barely see him, but I thought you'd like them nonetheless. :wink: Here are the links to the pictures (These are samples - you can purchase them I believe, if you contact them)

I also found records of commentary of his races, so I'll give you the link - you have to write his name in the 'Runners Name' box, then let it load - if you click the volume icon it will play the recording of each race he was racing in which they have on their system :).
