    Not a terrrible flaw, usually managed by keeping a baseline level of fitness.

    I don't see pigeon breasted?

    Agree with the other posters about the rest; overall impression of balance and quite mature looking for a three year old.

    My thoughts exactly^

    Can anyone suggest some good conditioning exercises to strengthen and develop the hindquarters in this pony? What kinds of exercises would you recommend to help maintain soundness in a slightly post-legged horse?

    Being only 3 she isn't being worked a lot under saddle (short sessions of gentle walk/ trot a couple of times a week). We are working toward conditioning her slow but steady. She is doing pretty well, but I'm still not super happy about her hind end as she still seems pretty flabby and a little under muscled. Is it reasonable to expect that we can condition her back end more, or would we be better off letting her be a pasture puff for another year?
