What about not-so-excellent ones?

I think TheLastUnicorn has posted a great conformational thread on how to judge conformation. It's a sticky.

Yes but horsegears might see things that I miss in that thread. So it's a learning experience anyway :)

A CLEAN SLATE FOR THE FUTURE

What qualifications does the OP have to rate anyone else's horse?

I know what my horses' conformation flaws happen to be. Don't need some self proclaimed 'expert' to point them out.

Plus, people aren't looking for anyone to 'rate' their horses, even if they're trying to learn about conformation. Pointing out obvious flaws is one thing, but putting some silly 'rating' on an animal is another.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

Perhaps it for persons that aren't so well informed? And as its in an open thread, persons can read, debate or agree.

bubba, those are not excellent confo shots (esp the 1st one)...

SR, just admit you are scared for your horse to be rated...




OP, I'm happy to post mine for "rating", but only if you are OK with not-so-excellent ones... Unfortunately I never can make my horse to stand squared (shame on me!)...

I'm with you on this one,I'm aware of my horses shortcomings.I'll leave the conformation critiques to the qualified judges & my peers I trust that share common knowledge of the breed & discipline my horse is bred.
