RE: [RC] Looking for some opinions on horses - photos - Ranelle Rubin


There have been some great advice given here, especially Dawn's about making sure you *like* the horse.

There are several things I really *must have* in an endurance horse:

Nice sloping shoulder-45 degrees is good.
Short Coupled (except some mares are a bit longer and that's ok)
Good feet (if you have a good relationship with a farrier you trust, I suggest you get their opinion)
Long hip
Soft eye
Attention to me when I meet them-are they interested in human contact or indifferent?

When I first got Fellow, he met all the above, and I still love him
Ranger, his little brother as well...

Hello all!  Just able to have horses again after about an 8 yr hiatus.  I am interested in endurance and was wondering if someone who is good at conformation might be able to email me privately about some horses I have available to me.  I would like to email some photos or video clips and get an opinion.  Anyone who would be willing to help would be greatly appreciated.
