    Default Conformation pictures of your 4ft+ jumpers

    Like the title says. I'm just interested in looking at their conformation, etc.

    Here's a picture of my 1.2 m-1.35 jumper, but has turned into my adult hunter, poor guy!

    http://good-times.webshots.com/photo...00093741vlRRpa

    This was taken in Belgium before he became my hunter
    But he's as bold as he can be and takes great care of me at 3 foot. We know he can do more but he's mine all mine at 3 foot!

    I'll take one of Nikki tomorrow!

    This is the only conformation shot I have of her (she's 3 in this picture and just off the track - she has a much more developed topline and booty now): http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-..._3919833_n.jpg

    This is my OTTB who currently does the 1.40m with plenty of scope and power to go higher:

    http://pets.webshots.com/photo/29177...94686761HAMRgI

    This is my warmblood mare who probably shouldn't be anywhere near as competitive at 1.30m as she is, let alone able to do the 1.40m (though she hasn't had to do anything that big since I moved my boy up):

    http://pets.webshots.com/photo/29433...94686761nrjzNP

    And this is my teeny tiny (15.1h) Dutch mare who easily has the scope and stride to do the High Juniors with her new owner. We routinely jumped her around 1.30m courses at home:

    I hesitate to post this, because right now we've gone back to basics and are learning dressagey things, but my jumper is as scopey as heck and built for it, I think. He's an OTTB, and before I decided to fill in some of our flatwork holes, we were schooling courses from 3'6" to 4'3". Now we trot. A lot.

    He had just had a bath here, but it's a good side shot. All of our faux jumper dressage stuff has given him one hell of a butt and a huge topline, but I have no recent confo pictures. http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a2...e/CIMG0269.jpg

    Currently doing 1.20m, has competed up to 1.30m (possibly higher before he was imported...not sure!) He's 15 now Not what I'd call textbook, but he works!

    Last summer:

    This past winter...not the best position but you get the picture:

    Julia (the second horse) is currently showing in the 1.20-1.30 (4'-4'3) 6 y/o classes. Catalina (the horse at the bottom) was schooling 1.40m+ (4'6-4'9) before being bred.

    I'm sad I don't have any confirmation pics of my "older" (aka 10-12 y/o) jumpers but in my mind they are pretty cute

    I have a number 4' plus horses, limited confo' pictures.

    This is one of my mares, moved up to GP's last fall.

    Though I have to say that if you are looking for any similarities in conformation that make a 4' horse, you may find some, but the reality is that good jumpers have different types of conformation, some good, some bad, and some in between.

    A lot of good looking horsie bootay in this thread.

    PNW, that first horse you have a pic of wouldn't happen to have Knight in his backgroud, would he?

    This is my best jumper currently. Not the best shot, but you get the point haha. He's currently actually only showing 3'6" because 'I' need more consistent show ring experience. He has been schooling 4' as if it doesn't exist and has free jumped 5'3....so I have complete confidence he'll continue to raise the bar.

    He's off the track. He is 10 years old now and raced til he was 6, had a minor minor right front bow, took a year off and went into training. He's 16.2 and built pretty beefy. His g'pa on the dam's side is Halo

    Schooling 3'9-4'3 at home. Have cleared 4'6 undersaddle and 5ft free jumping. No $ to show, though.

    Oldenburg mare, 7, 16.1, as a 6 year old:

    He was a dressage horse but loves to jump. Jumps 4 ft + easily. So this is the direction we are working him right now.

    One common factor I have seen in the 4ft jumpers posted here (not only are they all beautiful) but, the chest and shoulders. Very large and the breast bone is more forward than most horses....

    Bah, no conformation photos of my late AO jumper, he was perfect! Feeble attempt to show off horse, trotting: http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-a...11273_2817.jpg
    Free jumped to 5'6", brought me up to 1.30m in competition. Would have gone farther, but he suddenly passed away at a very young age.

    This is Creggan before the injury:
    http://inlinethumb54.webshots.com/40...600x600Q85.jpg
    Free jumped up to 5'0", competed mostly with my sister at the 1.10s, but would go higher with trainer.

    My chiropractor and vet have said he is VERY well put together for a jumper, darn soft tissues don't want to cooperate.

    Forestergirl99 ...... If you are interested in doing some research you can look up the Dam and Sire of some of the horses we have bred that are on the circuit and see their conformation since most of the pictures we have on our website are action pictures that I have purchased or have been sent by the present owners. There are some that I am sure have jumped 4 ft. but not on a regular show jumping course. The following horses I am sure of......
    Centurion B ( Paloma G X Rebel IZ ) was 3rd in the 25,000 GP in Chicago last week and 2nd in the jumping derby.
    Cielo B( Montana X Simsalabim ) won a modified GP last week in SC and Baccarat B (Paloma G X Rebel IZ )was 7th.
    Dante B ( Tara B X Simsalabim ) won the Washington Classic last week in Chicago and his rider was Champion Adult rider at the show.
    Wiebe B ( Montana X Rebel IZ ) was division champion of jr/Am Owner division at Gulfport in 2010
    All Star B ( Montana X Branco ) used to jump 4 ft but I have lost track of him.
    Concorde B ( Treasure B X Olympic Concorde )won many classes at 4 ft when he was ridden by Aaron Vale
    Deja Blue B ( Song Sung Blue B X Simsalabim ) probably was jumped 4 ft before he retired to breeding.
    I put the mares names first as you can look them up on our web site and they mostly have conformation pictures.
    This may take some research and you may have to go to some other sites as well
    but it also may help to draw some conclusions.
