    Conformation: Paint & Bay Pony

    I'd like to get an outsider's perspective on two of our horses. None of the pictures are exactly conformation shots, but I can't get any for awhile sorry!

    15 y/o paint mare. Photos were taken the day she got home. Previous owner said that between 2 and 4 she was in WP training and between 4 and 8 she was in dressage training and being lightly jumped. Was then shown in 4H by a girl until 13 when she joined me. Initially for 4H also but now after jumping lessons with a touch of dressage, I want to go back to what she was doing between 4-8 (Which she thankfully seems to remember). I am a little worried that she's a little long in the back and heavily built for any serious jumping.


    ^Her feet were awful when we brought her home.

    I'd love to hear what you have to say about the bay from these shots (I don't have any actual conformation shots at all so I understand it will be difficult) and what you think would be a fitting career for him? He stands between 13-14 hands.

    Judging from those pictures, I'd say the paint mare will hold up for jumping. She looks very solid. Just keep in mind that you're going to have to go slow; even the most conformationally correct horse will not stay sound if pushed too hard, too fast.

    As for the bay pony... I can't say anything based off of those pictures except he's cute and looks fast :)

    Oh I plan on taking it slow. Somebody had a year off while I studied abroad and put on a few pounds (or a hundred )

    And my boy is pretty fast. He's the only one who can outrace the cutting bred filly we have, though that is mostly because he can run longer and turn sharper than her (which is rather impressive in it's own right)
