    Default Which of These Two Has the Best Conformation?

    (It is tastefully done, but for some of you CotHers, you may want to move on to another post.)

    Just goes to show you how fit jockeys have to be! Now don't tell me galloping horses isn't exercise!

    These pix have been around before and I believe he did these shots.

    Nope, he did the shots, along with 24 other gorgeous, fit athletes (male and female!) for ESPN Magazine.

    This Mike is 6'6" - not jockey qualified.

    You are totally going to laugh at me, but I am impressed by this guy's hands. They are huge compared to the rest of his frame. And I know, I know, there's some old saying about the size of hands and the size of other anatomical features, but that's not my point. Appears that you have to be extra fit and have very strong hands to be a jockey. Not surprising.

    Well, I'd want a PPE on either one.

    The jockey has some edema in his ankles. The horse toes-in visibly with the RF.

    At least they have both been clipped for the occasion.

    Should be in an ad for Jockey undergarments!
    I like how the horse is averting its eyes...

    Red beet embarrassed?!? Embarrassing would have been a goat beard on the horse and the equivalent on the guy.

    I'm glad they were both clipped properly before their public appearance.
