Thank you! :)
Hello Ines,

It's true that conformation is an important part when evaluating a horses athleticism. But it is only one part! Horses of all shapes and sizes can do much more that you expect when challenged to do great things. Some consider a short back to indicate a short stride but a horse with a big heart can overcome conformational shortcomings.
