The top line of the body starting at the withers has a short back, close coupling, broad loins, which flows into a deep flank and well sprung ribs. The top line flows from the back and coupling into a long, slightly rounded, well-muscled croup and is smoothly rounding at the hip. The tail is well set. The underline of the body should be long but not tucked up at the flank. At maturity, the top of the hip must not be higher than the withers. The chest is medium width, with defined muscular development, and sufficient depth. The length of the foreleg should be at least longer than the depth of the body. The length of the body should be equal to each of the forequarter and hind quarter, each making up approximately a third of the horses’ length.
