Though I wish she was, Playday is not my horse - I only lease her! She's a 4 year old off-the-track Standardbred who's never actually raced, due to the way her hind left kept clipping her front R knee. As a result, said knee is a bit larger than the other (but so far, riding 4-5 days a week for the last 6 months, there's been no lameness).
She definitely has a long back and is still a little butt-high (I think). She's young and OTT, so we're working on stretching, relaxing, and building muscle in her top line. Which, by the way, all involves me taking lessons again (after years just riding on my own following time competing), which has been an education on how sloppy you get after years of no instruction!
Anyway, she's a joy to ride (kind, willing, smooth trot/canter), has inspired me to focus on my own riding, and now I've become a bit obsessed with her! So, I came out from lurking here on the horse forum to ask for a confirmation critique!
Thanks in advance :)
PS - I did my best with the photos, but I was by myself and she was very interested in what I was doing...also I can't seem to figure out how to get the hind end sot right way up! photo (5).jpg photo (7).jpg Attachment 92512
