Smile Conformation Critique, please! =)

This is my Argentine TB, Spot. She was imported about 7 years ago for polo here in the states and played right up until I got her. [IMG][/IMG] I'm curious what others think about her, so be as critique-y as you like! =)

I hope these pictures are alright, if not I'll try to get better pictures another day.

Very pretty!

bad -
She has a longer back.
Not much muscling.
Kind of pidgin toed.

Good -
Fairly straight legs
Nice neck and shoulder.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

I think she is a very structurally correct horse. She has really good legs, a really sturdy shoulder and a good hip angle. Shortish pasterns a bit upright, but again, really structurally strong build. Her head is large and throatlatch thick, but isnt' that the way Criollos are? I think she is awesome!

Thanks Tinyliny and Ray! She's a bit stouter than most polo ponies, they usually breed the TBxCriollos back to TBs to get a bit more of a speedy horse.

I don't know enough to critique her confo, but is that spot from an old horse bite? It looks like somebody bit a chunk out of her booty! LOL

Hahaha, I thought about her spot being a bite too. When I met her about 3 years ago playing polo she already had that spot, so its old. =)
