great shoulder and wither set, bet this guy can really extend through the front and has a nice extended trot. as a stb he's built to trot and this confo shows it. a touch long in the back and short in the hip, great hock set and angle. legs look good, nice neck shape, ties in a little low but clean throatlatch. all around great looking guy, what do you do with him?

She*
Well she's a natural pacer, broke to trot.
Her trot is SUPER bouncy and a SUPER long stride, so I ride english.
We jump a lot, trail riding, just messing around. She's super willing.
I'm hoping to do some shows this year or the next(:
Thank you for the critique!

This is the type of conformation I like to see, although her hind legs are set a little close together causing her hind hooves to "toe out" it also helps her get up under herself when jumping "sit" more when doing dressage. She's got a fantastic slope to her shoulder, and very straight legs.

She actually looks like she needs a little more heel on her front feet. The slope of her hoof doesn't really match the slope of her pastern but that could be because she's standing in the ring instead of on a hard flat surface.

She could use a little more top line on her neck more towards her head, it might make her head look a little less big (although it's very pretty). STBs tend to have big heads, but I always say bigger head more brains lol (my pony has a big head too). She's also got a very sweet eye.

I actually think you'd have a nice little show horse there that would do well in dressage and jumpers and possibly lower level eventing.

This is Alibi jumping last summer, during my barn's summer camp.
I'm not riding her, a camper is.
But just felt like sharing. She's much better over jumps now, but she loves it!
Her ears and tail go UP as soon as you point her to a jump.
I wish I had a picture of me and her. It's a better angle and you can see just how high she flicks her butt up!
