    Critique my mares.

    Or rather, one of my mares and one of the mares I have in training.

    Here we have Selena (The bay, Lean With Me x Chexintheexpresslane) and Destiny (Whose registered but papers lost back in the line of owners). I had a thread for Selena awhile ago but didn't really get replies that I remember, and I took some good pics today so I thought I'd share. I'm still learning about confo myself so I like these threads.

    Right now Selena is seven, she is finished in reining, started on the gaming events as well as on the flag and with cows. Being used on the HS Equestrian team, showing in western/English, equitation, speed and performance.

    Destiny is the same thing. She is much older though. She is 22 this year and here for a tune up. She was a cutting horse when she was younger. She's pretty undermuscled now.

    I know what I see here with both of them, but would like to hear what you think too.

    First Selena





    Now Destiny





    Excuse the sweat, just done riding.

    And just for giggles, this is Selena being rude. Always has to take up more space than the needs when tied.

    The bay is a really nice horse. The only thing I see is she is a bit back at the knee and a bit straight through the hock. Her shoulder is correct as is the angle and placement of the point of shoulder. Nice horse.

    The Palomino has a steep shoulder, thick base of neck, long coupling and sickle hocs with the entire leg set back too far. She does have a more correct front leg than the bay but over all the bay has a good bit more quality.

    The bay is really nice. I agree pretty much on a whole with what Elana said, only I would also like to point out that she is posty in the back legs as well.

    As for the palomino, I also agree with Elana. Im not a fan of the shoulder and neck, though she does have substancial depth through the girth and decent hindquarters. Stands under herself in the front, though I will give her the benefit of a doubt with the back legs that she is just standing off and would in truth be fairly correct.
