Third: Gelding C
This gelding has very clean legs with good bone. His knees are f lat, and his hocks are angled well. His near front pastern looks too short and upright in this position, but I think the well-sloped offside pastern is a better example of his true pastern angle.
He shows a lovely expression in his eye and a kind-looking ear position. His head is a little long and lacks the chiseled look, though, and he’s slightly thicker through the throatlatch and shorter in the neck than Geldings B and A.
His hips are nicely sloped, but the straightness of his shoulders places him behind the other two geldings. A steep shoulder hinders a f lowing stride and can be rough to ride. His high withers go with his straight shoulder and could make saddlefitting a challenge. His topline isn’t as strong over the loins as the other two geldings’. He’s similar to Gelding
