Any horse conformation experts out there? - Page 3

post #21 of 25
Sounds like you made a good choice. The abscess would concern me the most, especially if there is a chance it has invaded the joint. She probably could make a nice pet but if you are going to invest time and money into training a horse I would go for one that has decent conformation to begin with! (Granted, my family owns an ugly horse that is cow hocked but was trained on a ranch, and he is sound. Sound horses can have conformation faults but some not all conformation faults are created equal)

I wish the rescue place wasn't so far from me.  You mentioned a huge Percheron being there.  Him I would LOVE to be able to take home.

The obvious takes a little longer.

With the right training and and conditioning, you could make up for a few of the conformation flaws.She is a very beautiful horse, despite conformation issues, and could make an okay riding horse.
Yeah. I couldn't believe how cheap she was.

I think you made the right choice. Lots of other horses out there looking for homes with tons more potential.

Grade, unbroken youngsters usually go for around $200-500 here, there are a lot of unwanted horses around where I live.
