critique our new prospect

We picked her up 2 weeks ago she is a 2009 AQHA filly with Sunfrost, and On the Money Red on her papers, keep in mind she has only been ridden 10 times at the time of the pictures

Overall, she wouldn't be what I would pick for a barrel horse, but she doesn't look bad, by any means.

She's got a thicker throatlatch and slightly shorter neck, than I would like. She also seems to want to stand over her knees, and does not have as straight of hocks as I like (a little cow-hocked and a little under herself). I'd like her back to be just a tad bit longer (along with her neck to keep the balance). I'd also like to see more rounded hindquarters.

But it looks like she's got a nice quiet eye, and is overall proportional with her body. She's got a nice shoulder too.

"Keeping in mind" she's only had 10 rides really has nothing to do with conformation. Yes, it would affect her muscle tone, but not her original conformation.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

I agree with Beau.

I would type more but I gotta go...I'll be back!

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
