Am I the only one who doesn't think she looks skinny? Maybe needs a tad more weight but I don't think she looks that bad. Needs muscle and I think it's very obvious she's still growing and that her body will change and also bulk up a lot in the next few years. I wouldn't stress to much about her condition. Just keep on pouring groceries in. Do you ride her a lot? This isn't a horse I would suggest starting young, but sounds like it's already been done. Just go slow and give her plenty of growing time.

Oh no, she is skinny. Her hips are sunken in and you can see her ribs. She's def underweight, the lighting is the indoor arena isn't very good. I showed my trainer this picture and she said its a horrible picture of her and she is stretched out because I don't really know how to get her square myself. I will let her grow and gain and repost a better picture in Summer time :) As for working her she gets ridden 3 times a week by my trainer who is like 100lbs tiny. I rider her maybe once a week. Although this is her last month of training.

I'll take your word for it since I know pics are very decieving sometimes. Based off that picture she is fine imo. Yeah I wouldn't push her.

Would love to see better pics, in the summer or now :)

Just be wary of making her too big, she should look like she looks in the picture. Too many people make their horses overweight and there's quite a few health risk with it that aren't worth it. If you say she looks skinnier in person than aim for her to look like she looks in the picture.

^Excellent, completely agree. I think her body will bulk up overall, but don't let that trick you into letting her get fat.
