    Default Behind the knee

    This WB is behind the knee on LF and is going to be 3yrs old in may. Does anyone think this can straighten out some? I know what they say about behind the knee horses, but im wondering because of her age if it will straighten some. Horse has great big feet that are NOT low in the heel and long in the toe. Im looking at this horse for jumping/dressage/resale.

    Sorry, no I don't think it will straighten. My thoughts are what you see is what you get. JMHO.

    Picture?

    I HAVE seen a few that were BATK as younger horses, and improved greatly by the time they were well under saddle.

    On a thread about this in the last year or so, someone posted before/after pictures of a BATK horse who did resolve. I don't recall the age of the before, and it might have been much younger than this OP horse
