clinical health examination conducted by registered, reputable veterinary

First and foremost look into the eyes of the

curious look with large, round eyes, or does it have small and/or narrow eyes?
Is the forehand proportionate to the
hindquarter? Is the leg length
proportionate to the body depth? Is the length of the neck proportionate to
length of the back? Is the length of the head proportionate to length of the
neck? Is overall bone and substance, such as size of hooves, proportionate
to body mass?
View the horse not ridden
and/or tacked up to examine its natural movement.
Does it appear relaxed with natural balance in all movements?
Is walk free and loose as
opposed to short and tight?
Is hock action proportionate to knee action? Do the shoulders move as freely

animation. More is better.
In free movement, is length of the stride from hindquarter equal to length of the forehand
stride? Does the horse have natural extension in both
trot and canter? How freely does the horse move in canter? Is there a 3-beat
canter? Does the horse have a natural 'uphill' forward movement with natural
'swing' to its back?
