So I'm very, very new at this, but I liked seeing the critques of various horses and wanted to see if I could get some more opinions on my mare. She turned 4 on March 28th this year (2012). I am curious to see a more specific review of her confirmation, so thanks in advance for any insight! =)
I'm not sure if these pictures are enough to critique (as they are in-motion shots)? If not, can anyone suggest more angles and placements for a better critique and I'll post more?
Thank you! I'm going to be honest, I've never known the technicals of confirmation, and I'm very interested in learning as I see a lot of talk about how it can affect performance abilities in more ways than I imagined. I've always picked mine based on a few things for barrel horses: Short back, long underline, nice slope on shoulder to look for stride ability, and the slope of the backside compared to the front.
My concern with my girl when I got her was that her butt seemed a little high. She is a very "cowy" mover. I'm just interested in understanding how to better assess confirmation, so I greatly appreciate the advice!
I'll take some better pics today and repost for a better view.
