I like her hindquarters
Back legs aren't bad. Possibly a little posty
needs some muscling. Her neck looks like a little match stick it's so thin. We're working on that with Dressage, but it'll take time before she really starts to fill out. You can see some definition when she collects. Just not all there yet. And when you say posty what does that mean? Her wide stance in that one picture? That might have been my fault. She would stand really close so I tried to square her up again & then she'd stand super wide. I'll try for another picture again with someone else holding her.
O.O Her hooves just got trimmed like last week Elana... The closer shots I took at weird angles (extremely
weird angles, the first one I'm actually angling down on - hence the long appearance of her hooves), but her hooves are actually quite short... Our farrier trims her on angles. Could the light bone be because of the strong TB influence in her lines? I realize it's relatively far back, but I would assume that would make for lighter built QHs?

Picture is just to show the SLIGHT muscling in her neck >.> No riding crit please - I have an instructor for that.
