instead of trying to visualize where the bones of the arm and shoulder are to get the above angle measured, the judge could use the angle between then point of shoulder and the humerus, which should be at the angle of around 85 degrees. The twisting motion of the hocks causes a screwing motion on the hoof as it hits the ground, leading to bruises, corns, quarter cracks, and ringbone.

Reduced flexion forces the horse to jump flatter with less bascule. The overall shape of a horse's chest plays a key role in the front leg movement.

Raising the head high, or extending the poll joint, will cause the lower jaw (mandible) to slide backwards (caudally) slightly (approx 3- 10 mm). Narrow white line makes it hard to hold shoes on. The elbow should be in line with the front of the withers and not farther back than the peak of the withers.

Gives the appearance of a half-moon contour from the stifle to hoof. Please enter a valid email address for yourself. 15K. The short stride is a result of both a short pastern and upright shoulder, creating a short, choppy stride with minimal elasticity and limited speed. The coronary band often slopes asymmetrically due to pushing of hoof wall & coronet on steep side, which gets more impact than flared. I thikn it's also called a China eye or something like that.

The topline continues in a relatively flat manner to the dock of tail rather than falling off at oblique angle at the hips.

A sloping shoulder is most advantageous for jumping, dressage, eventing, cutting, polo, driving, racing, and endurance. Thus a breeder needs to be careful and considerate even of head type when planning to breed a superior foal. Over time, this can lead to sole bruising, laminitis, heel soreness, navicular disease, and ringbone. Long loins are associated with a long back. True uphill build refers to the spine and is very advantageous in dressage, eventing, etc. It is important that the horse’s incisor bite be checked with the head in the normal resting position and not raised up high. A weak loin inhibit's this, especially affecting eventing, jumping, and trail horses. A well-muscled build may hide a short pelvis. An angular limb deformity that creates a toed-out appearance. A knife neck is relatively common in older horses of any breed. A pop eye is the opposite of pig eye; it is the description given to an eye that seems to be too large and protruding from the head. The horse generally does poorly at prolonged exercise, especially if on hard or uneven terrain (eventing, trail riding). Speed and jumping sports should be avoided until the muscles are developed. The attachment to its body is beneath the half-way point down the length of shoulder. It is often rider-induced, and usually indicates lack of athletic ability.

The lower jaw should be clearly defined. There may be back pain from vertebral impingement. Difficult to hold on saddle.

The line of the neck flows into that of the back, making for a good appearance and an efficient lever for maneuvering.

The horse has an enlargement at the top of the croup, or a malalignment of the croup with the pelvis and lumbar vertebrae, caused by the tearing of a ligament at the top of the croup. The jaw is called large if it is greater than 7.2 cm. Too much roundness increases the size of the barrel, may restrict upper arm movement, the length of stride, and thus speed. This mare is pig eyed: Very difficult horse to work with. A short femur reduces stride length behind & elasticity of stride that jumpers, dressage horses, and flat/harness racers want. Pushes the rider's legs further to the side of the body, and can be uncomfortable, especially in sports that require long hours in saddle or that require sensitive leg aids (dressage, cutting, reining). It increases concussion on front limbs, possibly promoting the development of DJD or navicular disease in hard-working horses. A narrow pelvis contributes to speed since the horse can get its hind legs well under its body to develop thrust.

Jumper's Bump (also known as Hunter's or Racking Bump) [10], Medial Carpal Deviation/ Carpus Valgus/ Knock-Kneed [14] [15], Bucked, Sprung, or Goat Knees/ Over at the Knee [16], Toed-Out/Lateral Deviation of Pastern from Fetlock/ Fetlock Valgus [19], Toed-In/Medial Deviation of Pastern/Fetlock Varus, Sickle- or Sabre-Hocked/ Overangulated Long Hind Legs [21], Cow Hocks/Medial Deviation of the Hocks/Tarsus Valgus, The angle of the pasterns is best at a moderate slope (between 50-55 degrees) and moderate length.[6].

It is thought that this limits the animal’s peripheral vision, which makes him more likely to be flighty or to bolt with very little provocation. The length of stride is dependent on the forearm length and shoulder angle, so a short forearm causes horse to need to increase the number of steps to cover a distance, increasing overall muscular effort and hastening fatigue. Ears that are too large or too small may make the head seem too small or large in proportion with the body.

Common, usually seen in Quarter Horses, Paints, and Warmbloods. This will limit collection is any discipline. The horse has reduced mechanical efficiency for lifting and breaking over the toe, so it may trip or stumble.
