Critique this mare please, what do you see

Mmmmmmm, there is a possibility of me taking this horse, at least for a while, she is a arab x saddlebred, 15.2 hh and described as strong boned.







These are the only pics at the moment, she is described as being very very smooth and comfortable to ride, with potential for dressage.

I think I see a hint of a roach back in that second picture. That's all I can really pick out about her.

She's a beauty!

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I'm not a fan of how her withers and neck tie in to eachother, but that's merely opinion. I don't have much experience with Saddlebred conformation.

Otherwise I think she's lovely. I don't really see the roached back though. I'd personally like to see a lot more muscle in that hind end, but that is a conditional thing, not conformational. What a beau!

be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

Gorgeous!! Like the others said, sorta roached back, but I think that she's really really pretty!

Every horse is an angel... They just don't need wings to soar!

I LOVE her build! I would take her in a heartbeat.

She's what I look for in a horse.
:)

I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it

I think she may have a combo of that "Saddlebred Sway" (at least figuratively, if not literally ie genetically), and a short back, which makes her look kinda funny. She is gorgeous, though, IMO. Her Araby croup is kind of flat which may make collection harder for her, but not impossible.

Cheers,

She is certainly only pasture fit at present, so a lot of muscling to go on. Mmmmm someone say they hate her!
