there is nothing wrong with the way she is being ridden. There are two olds that are perfecting slide stops and lead changes and have a way heavier work load, this mare is nearly 4, buy four years she can do pretty well as much as any 11 year old horse can. She is lacking in the muscle department and has some filling out to do, but like said above better pics would be nice. Keep up the good work, looks like she will a make a good working horse!
Good luck

I would hate to meet the trainers of those two year olds. They would not have it well with me.

A four year old should not be able to perform like an 11 year old and not have issues later in life.

I wouldn't risk riding her hard or sliding her at any age. She is a nice little horse, and sickle hocks will sometimes give you a smoother ride but they will also make her more succeptible to bone spavin.

here's some more photos...I'm honestly not really sold that she is sickle hocked. I could be wrong obviously, but I'll post new pictures when she sheds, right now she's pretty fuzzy but maybe I will change my mind haha.
The first two are from sept/october and the last one was as an *almost* yearling.

Either she's seriously camped under on that second pic or she's sickle hocked. It'd be nice to see some good, squared-up side-on pics of her. Her being fuzzy or not isn't going to change the angle of her hocks.

Do not tell me I can't...because I will show you that I can.

I agree; however I want more of a critique than just her hocks.
