These two young studs formally belong to my younger brother and he wanted to know if they were decently correct, and I have been looking for a new prospect for novice onward eventing and I've been in love with standies since my first horse

The horse is not jumping properly, and you need to go back to crossrails and learn to ride a jump correctly and get off your horse's mouth and in balance over a fence. Both of you need lessons in basics before even considering jumping, and you need tack that fits. Just because a horse can get to the other side of a fence does not make it a jumper or eventer. Both of you are going to end up injured or dead if you keep this up. Please, please, please get a good trainer and some help.... Please. These photos are just painful to look at. SO MUCH WRONG! I'm not trying to be mean, but you need a wake up call before you get killed. What are of the country/world are you in? Maybe someone on the board can make some suggestions for trainers.

But I also understand that a horse with bad conformation will have trouble getting over cross country jumps or pulling of dressage moves. The Qh/paint colts will not be used for eventing, I simply was asking for my brother if they were growing according to the qh/paints of their age range. Since they were severly malnourished theur growth slowed incrediably...since getting good feed into them they have sprouted up like nobodys business. The only horse I wanted critiqued was the Standardbred.. I could easily see the main faults of him such as his calf knees in the front, his aweful muscle tone on top(all over actually) but I was hoping sombody could point out faults that I didnt notice so I can look at other horses and see those faults as well. Here was my last "eventer" we didnt get a chance to show but i had her trained for evrything quite well..her heart just wasn't in it so she went to a lovely forever trail/pleasure home.
Any thoughts on HER conformation?
*note... in the pictures I am not wearing a helmet, and in the first picture she was bridleless(had a halter on) but I was riding with a neck rope.!
*second photo she had just popped over a 4'6" jump with ease...
*third is about 3 foot-3'6"
*Fourth is her and I jumping the first year I trained and jumper her
*the rest are different (NOT VERY GOOD) confo shots.. but it is basically how she was built. She was an all rounder. Trail, barrels, poles, jumping, dressage ANYTHING and she did it with ease.
Jasperalana JUST WANTED TO CLARIFY!
The fourth photo is the only one I am "on her mouth" and if you read you would see that that was the year I bought her and we had both just started learning. The first photo I am not on her mouth at all because there is NOTHING in her mouth I am using a neck strap that is literally just around her neck!. She over jumped it a bit and my leg slipped back too far. Other than that My riding is perfectly fine. How can you state that I am a bad rider and that I need lessons if you have seen two photos, one of which was a simple slip up and the other was taken 4 years before. AND how is she "jumping wrong"? She has perfect knees! The first photo like I said was an over jump and she took off too close to the jump! EVERYBODY and EVERY creature makes mistakes sometimes even the most skilled and schooled horses and riders. So Don't sit there and judge me on two photos, honestly...what do you know..? I am an experienced rider, you can't say someone is inexperienced if you don't know them, never seen the ride, and are basing assumptions upon two photos. I asked for HER conformation to be criticized. If I had wanted my own riding criticized I would have posted some RECENT photos on a different board. SO PLEASE ONLY criticizing the horses !! THANKS!

I don't know what the 13 year old standardbred is going to cost or what it's background is but there's nothing at all about it's conformation or condition that makes me think it's ever done much of anything or makes me think it's anything other than a dead cheap horse. It won't make an eventer so long as I've got a hole in my backside.
