Factors to Consider

What are the Factors that determine a good horse:

At Diligent Horses we put a huge emphasis on conformation, "Conformation is a term used to describe how a horse is constructed or put together", e.g.

  • Correct alignment of limbs
  • Good density of bone
  • A well developed upper body
  • Good width between jaws to allow air flow
  • An attractive head
  • Good movement during walk and trot.

If the horse fulfills the aforementioned criteria it decreases the possibility of injury during training and competition/racing.
