    Hey everyone, a little bored (and avoiding doing any work);) So just for fun and I'm a little curious because my old trainer used to hate him!

    What do you think of my horse? We plan do BE80 next season, was supposed to start this year but got his sarcoids removed, so if you notice any in the photos he no longer has them!
    15.3 14 year old thoroughbred who I have had for three years. I personally think we really need to work on the top line? Please no nasty comments.. I know he's not the most expensive horse ever! Which is ironic of me to say on a crit my horse post, but we don't plan on doing a novice any time soon.;)
    Edit: I forgot to mention, he does have one eye which doesn't bother him at all.

    Thank you :))

    Your settings need to be changed, you probably have them set for a more private setting. It's blocked.

    what a doll - can't offer critique of horse with tack but may I gently comment that your saddle is a few inches too far forward? Even in the over fences photo, you can see that his shoulder blade isn't completely free from potential saddle interference. I struggle every time I tack up to move the saddle back - we are so conditioned to set it too far forward. :)

    Thanks for the reply! You’re completely right about the tack, however it’s okay on the jumping one, not touching his shoulder:)
    Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated

    This can be hard to diagnoses from photos. SOME saddles have the tree points set so far back from the front of the saddle, that you could have the front sitting on the shoulder blade and the tree points aren't too far forward. Others the tree points are at the exact front of the saddle.
