AQHA/APHA 2 year old *better pic*

Hopefully this is a better conformation picture of my mare. She'll be 3 late this month, I took these pictures tonight. It was a bit of a task to get her to square up, lol. She kept trying to follow me. She's AQHA and APHA registered, 16.1hh and growing. Def needs more weight on her!

She has a long weak back with a long weak coupling. Her hip is slight with a steep croup. Her shoulder is steep, and her neck looks very under muscled. She is also downhill and looks like she might stay that way. She almost looks back at the knee but it's hard to see both front legs and where one ends and the other begins. She's standing a little funny so I won't really comment on leg stuff.

ETA She also looks to be on the fine boned side

I don't know if she's on a hill or just stretched out, we just rode so every time is try to get her to square up she would lean her weight and pick up a leg to rest. I tried my best, but I'm not very good at getting her square lol The arena is all very rough right now due to ice build up.

Well she may be down hill but I don't really know for sure, she just needs more muscle put on and I'm sure she'll look fine.

She was very under weight, this is about 2 months of trying to put weight on her. You could count all her ribs :(

She's 3, still growing and quite a bit underweight. She looks braced back off those front feet, almost like a laminitic horse would do, but I suspect you just tried to shoo her back for the picture. Give it til June and put up before and afters. It'll be interesting to see what she shapes up like.

Ok, sounds good. I'll wait till late Summer and have my trainer help me get a good conformation picture outside in the light! :)
