    Critics problem areas PLEASE be harsh

    I plan on showing this little girl this an have been working on jumping, currently trying to find a trainer. But I need to know all of her problem areas that judges might pick out.
    She is a mix breed of some sort so I can't even tell you what she is. I am currently showing western in 4h though and want to know your opinions on how well she would do, assuming she stands well for it. But please be picky! If you see an area I should work harder on muscling, don't be shy to let me know!

    I like her build. She isn't wasp waisted, has a good strong back, has a "jumping bump", well sprung rib cage, nice and square with the legs and certainly not post legged. Does she LIKE jumping? If so, until you find a trainer I would drill as much Dressage into her as possible in preparation for jumping. You might find that you and she could be eventing partners and you'll be MILES ahead of the eventers who avoid the Dressage prep like the plague!
    IDK the other side, but she looks 1/2 QH to me--it's the forearms.

    She's a really nice looking mare. I don't see anything at all that would prevent her from being a competitive at pretty much any level you want, providing she's got the scope and desire for it.

    Her legs look clean (though she may be a bit offset in that left knee...hard to tell in the one pic whether it's a fault or just the picture). Her pasterns are a touch on the long side, but they have really good angle. I am drooling over her large feet (though she does need a trim). She's got a good shoulder angle but her neck is a bit short and thick and ties in a bit high for my taste. Her back appears to be a good length and looks strong. Her croup is a little steep and she's a bit camped out in those hind legs...though those appearances may change in a different stance.

    All in all, a very nice little mare that looks like she'd be sturdy enough for just about anything.

    You are showing her in performance classes, not halter classes. How she looks means nothing to a judge, it's how well she is trained and how well you ride her to get her to perform. Jumping is based on having a clear go and staying within the time allowed, but western performance is judged, it's still on the horse's performance but of course it doesn't hurt to have a nice looking horse which your horse certainly is.

    Thank you but I plan on doing many different classes in 4h, including grooming and showmanship, and other general halter classes. It is outside of 4h that I am going to jump. But thank you :) I rescued her a little over a year ago from a person who neglected her. I can't believe what that guy just threw away

    What a nice, smooth mare. Lots of things to like about her. I want to see her all done up in her English clothes.

    Just shows what great rescues are out there.
