I was wondering if I could have some opinions on this horse.. not a great conformation picture but I thought I would ask anyway.



He's a 16.2 hh hano/tb, 3 and 1/2 years, and he just recently started to lunge and go undersaddle. I'm looking for a jumper prospect and I'd maybe show some dressage aswell.

I'm not the greatest at judging conformation but something looks a little off with his front legs or maybe it's just the way he is standing..

I'd appreciate any thoughts, thanks for looking!

funny back and butt.....maybe built uphill? ALso something is going on with his fetlocks in the front... and I'm thinking he has super short hind pasterns and kinda short fronts, but IDK.
Something is definitly off,though.

Are the front legs supposed to be that far in front of the wither area? I'm no confo expert. It just looks weird to me. The angle from the croup to the tail looks kinda funky too. Hopefully somebody who knows what they are talking about will ring in.

JMO, I would keep looking. My gut says the horse doesn't look right as everyone else has said. His legs don't look 'right' though the fuzzy picture and way he's standing might be contributing to that. If you're looking for a jumper, my instinct just tells me that's not the right horse and it would be a helluva lot of work to put into the guy just to find out he's not cut for it. Lots of horses out there already started in their careers that you could find...? Just my opinion though.
