Her ribcage line is too long - you want it to end at her last rib, and intersect (touch) the body length line.

Her shoulder line (your black one) should go through the center of her shoulder - from there it's position and where it "touches" the other dots will tell us something.

I think the others are OK. I'm going to really try to remember to get back here later to do the measuring!

I wanted to bump this fabulous thread back up - I see a lot of people asking for horse critiques, when they can come to this particular thread to read up on how to do the evaluations themselves.

Ok, so I had a go. Can someone take a look and tell me if I got all the dots/lines right before I go and measure them all?

OTTB, yes, all look pretty good! Your stifle joint dot may be a bit high... So keep that in mind if the measurement signifies something that doesn't "fit" your horse.
