Third: Gelding A
Gelding A appears to have the straightest legs of the group with no structural faults. He has a nice head with a clean throatlatch and long, thin neck. His neck tie-in to his shoulder is a little low, and his shoulder is upright. More length and slope to his shoulders would improve his movement and he’d have a longer, smoother stride.
His withers are high and would ft a saddle well. His back’s longer than I pre- fer and his underline’s short, especially in relation to his long topline. This’ll inhibit his hind-leg reach, making it difficult for him to track his front footsteps. He’s also short in his croup and stifle, which won’t make him as strong in his hind end. His muscling, though slight, extends into his hocks well. His hock angle appears adequate, though his white markings make it difficult to assess at frst glance. Gelding A also has shorter, angled pasterns that’ll effectively absorb shock. He’s the lightest-boned horse of the group and could use more muscling and substance overall.
