I love Saphira's booty. An endurance rider/competitor who is also a farrier was out a couple weeks ago, and she took one look at my horse, said she'd be awesome for endurance, and that she loved the almost quarter horse looking hip Saphira has. Big hip, big butt, round barrel, and decent bone all in a 14.1ish hand Arabian mare. I love it. But the whole tail thing added another thing to my list. I don't mind lower set tails, but I hate it when it looks like someone hacked off the top half of a horse's butt, set the tail half way down the horses butt cheeks, it give the horse a constant "butt tucked cause I'm in pain" kind of appearance. I also hate the completely flat butt you see on a lot of Arabians and Saddlebreds. The kind you could have dinner on.

I think this poor guy is one of the fugliest horses I have ever seen. I'm sure he's a sweetie but.........................****. The only good thing I can say about this guy is that nobody purposefully bred parents that would produce something like this.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

Poor little guy. He deserves some lovin just for being the cute kind of fugly.

I wish I could find a picture of the stud I was talking about that didn't have someone riding him in it. And I would feel a bit bad about it, so I shan't.

I don't like sway backs or ewe necks. I also dont like a horse that is horribly stretched out in the back or horribly sickle hocked.
Pigeon toes & cowhocks i dont mind but it depends on the severity.

I also dont like to see a horse with a big body, really long, thin neck with a giant roman head on the end lol.
