    Hello! I'm looking for an upper level jumper prospect and would love to hear your insights on this warmbloods angles. I like his overall proportions, and might just be in love!! i love his expression. the photo looks like it was taken on a slope, so keep that in mind.
    thanks in advance

    I'm not very good at judging conformation. But, this horse is beautiful! Good luck, and I hope he works for you!!!

    Good shoulder and wither set. Slightly shorter back length, and a good reasonable hind. Good even height length ratio.

    Well above average and breeding quality.

    Forequarters the strength. Photos are set to flatter horse and hind slightly. Eye catcher. Purchase with confidence based on images only.

    He looks a little lighter built but is obviously young. Back is a touch long. Very sweet face. What is his breeding?

    Do you have video?

    I'm also curious about his breeding :)

    I can't find anything to take issue with with that one. I would snatch him up in a heartbeat. I think the angles in his hind end are quite good. I would love to see what his jumping style is like.

    He is an Irish sport horse by USA cruising. I don't have a video just yet but I will post when I do. Thanks everyone. Any other thoughts?

    He is a very attractive, quality horse. The only thing conformation wise that might be concerning for an upper level jumper prospect is that in the photo of his left side it appears as if he is slightly back at the knees. More so on the left front leg than the right which actually looks pretty good.

    What upper level horses has USA Cruising produced? I know he is sired by Cruising and his oldest foals are 13 years old? I am not familiar with his offspring. Does he have any upper level jumpers showing out there?

    Here is his website link http://acornhillfarm.com/usa_cruising.html

    I am a HUGE fan of Flexible however. Love that boy. He is amazing.

    Definately would say this boy looks to be one worth trying out. Good luck!
