What does she look like?

Hi all!
So this is my 3yr mare Cali. I took some pictures of her after riding today and, well, she just looks sooo THICK, exspecially in her neck. My question is what does she look like to you?



Sorry the pics are huge, only way I could get them up. I only have pics of her saddled too, might be able to grab a few later tonight

Never forgot the horse that taught you to be fearless (Braveheart RIP) the horse that taught you to stay strong no matter how bumpy the road is (Caesar) and the horse that always had to test gravity by throwing you in the air (Cali)

Yep, she has a thick, short neck and thick throatlatch. Cute mare though, I like her butt!

I get compliments on her butt everywhere I go Only in the horse world is that acceptable lol

here are some more pictures of her in her new pink halter, I promised myself I would buy her a new one when she outgrew her old one, and its BRIGHT pink!

She's nice looking but I don't know what breed she is. Pink looks good on her.
(your halter is tied incorrectly)

I love pink on her! And I know about the halter, I was taught this way and its been hard retraining myself.


Also dont know if it matters but when she trots, canters, gallops, her tail goes straight up. I have also gotten several comments on how fast she is

Looks like a Paint to me

And today, I learned how to tie a rope halter correctly. I have always tied it like the picture shown, that's how I was shown how to do it. :p Learn something new every day! Is there a reason that it's incorrect? Is it easier to untie the other way, or?

Also, the pink looks fabulous on her! I want a pink one for Clementine. I'm not a huge fan of pink, but she's all black and I thought it might be a cool contrast.

rope halters should be tied so the tail sticks straight up. Reason being that if the horse pulls back and the halter knots, you have two different ways to loosen the knot instead of having to cut the halter off.

You have to learn how to fall before you can learn how to ride~
