Eventing and showing tb

How does she look to you guys? She's my horse so you may tear her apart. I know that she is a little down hill. That's about it tho. I have ask for a critique on her before but that was a few months ago when she has a lot less muscling and they were pretty dodgy photos. IMG_0381.jpg

This is a pretty nice horse. She is a bit wasp waisted (but it may be due to conditioning) and her hocks are a bit too high. She is a bit tied in at the knee and her pasterns are a bit long. Her neck is a bit ewe and her shoulder looks adequate.

She could stand some dressage training.. trotting on a long rein up hills and caveletti work to build her ring of muscles and "turn her neck over." She is not as downhill as you may think. Draw a line from the point of buttock to the root of the neck (not the base of the neck) and she is pretty level.

Nice horse except for tied in at the knee. Do you jump her with boots (like professional choice)? I would to help support those front tendons.

Thumbs up

Alot of the TB's I see are a little thin looking I guess you'd call it. Just the way they are built. But she looks amazing! I'm by far no critique expert, but JMO, I like a little thicker neck, & a little less wither. But then, I believe those are normal for TB's? I just know, I would'nt be embarassed to ride her!

Not bad--her legs are straight, and she has some nice balance. I think if you work her over jumps while lunging, and lots of cross country work on hills, you could muscle up her hindquarters, so you don't wear out the front legs. Is she OTTB? I think it might come down to how well she dressages--that might be a word, in my universe. =b

Do you guys think that she is good enough to breed in the future or not? I was thinking long term before I retire her(in many years to come) to breed her.

I would not breed her unless she shows really well and works really well and stays sound.

I would not breed this horse.

The Racing industry dumps too many on the market to consider breeding. She would have to have won an Olympic medal to consider, IMO. Just train her and love her--that will be enough. =D
