I know a few of my points are off, but I would be interested in hearing what someone else sees. I don't have a way of doing the angles on this computer, but did the measuring with a sheet of paper and tick marks lol. You would think a seamstress by trade could at LEAST locate a tape measure . . . Oh well.
I'm not sure how old Emma was in this photo, it was taken before I got her and I don't have a more recent one decent enough for conformation. I'm guessing she was 3 or 4 in this one and she's 5 or 6 now. Not really sure of her breed, some Appy, some Paint, some Arab possibly and my brother thinks some Walking horse going from how her back end moves. :) Whatever the combination I enjoy riding her lol
So, here's my girl.
So far it looks like she's a little long in the neck and her shoulder angle is a little less than ideal but overall she looks ok. She is a really smooth mover (not as smooth as my other mare), and she jumps really well.
What do you think? I'm not sure if I put the points in the right places...
Wow this was a lot of fun.
Unfortunately I' am horrible at math and can't understand it.
I took a picture of my horse and I measured him, Used the box effect but that didn't work. I don't have a protractor so I played with one online.
But I can't add measurements into fractions or angels.
I used a measuring tape and string on his body instead
The length of body just almost 77
The length of scapula is 25
The length of humerus is 14 1/2
The length of (Point of butt to hip, to stifle) are all 19 1/2.
I could use a little help. The point of his hip though was tough. Its right inbetween three spots more so to the left of the spots if that helps the view
Newbie here :) I've been enjoying learning about conformation from this tutorial. I don't have a horse to feel anatomical landmarks so some of the locations might be off. Can someone tell me how I'm doing? I need to head out but can edit to add my interpretations when I get back.
I only have access to a computer at work, and they wiped off our paint program, and of course limited us from downloading anything. If anyone has some free time on their hands, I would really appreciate if someone would do this tutorial on my mare! If not, no big deal. Just thought I'd ask.
