    Default Conformation education

    There is going to be a going event horse sale in Ireland in the next couple of weeks, and the sales catalog is very interesting. Lots of nice conformation photos along with minimal breeding information and a run down of the competition records.

    Catalog is here. On dial-up it takes forever to load.

    It would be fun to see who everyone's favorites are. It figures that I keep gravitating towards the full or mostly TB horses!

    In September, Irish Thoroughbred Marketing posted videos of TBs for sale (for sport) at Goresbridge.

    ITM has a YouTube channel here.

    I liked a lot of them....but I'll take 22, 27, 53 and 58


    Based purely on a very quick glance...no real thought....these are just the ones that caught my eye.

    Based on a quick glance ... I really like 11.
    I quite like the bay mare 43, though she might be more of a hunter type really? I also like 54 because I'm a sucker for a big chestnut head. 65 also has a lot of eye appeal for me, though I'm not sure about his front legs.

    I think what surprised me, given the general belief that an UL event horse needs to be very, very high in TB percentage, is how low in TB percentage most of these horses are.

    Haven't been able to look at the videos yet but I would seriously consider 43 and 60 based on the catalog pics. That could all change with movement.

    Exclamation look closely; it depends

    What are you buying/ looking for? They are nice looking horses, but nearly all are poorly stood up, with hind legs behind them; some are very sickle hocked with very open stifles, filled pasterns; checking the radiographs would be very important; all that said; I would consider # 7 depending on how he looked/ went XC

    I'll take #10. Quality mare with trad breeding, would cross well with TB or near-TB types.
