Go for it on these guys. I'm aware of their flaws, but am curious as to what a "rating" entails....

First two are Thoroughbreds, third is a Paso Fino, fourth is a Percheron.

All horses have traits that can be put to good use when well placed. I don't rate so much good or bad. You can post without fear of your horse being slandered. :)

Thoroughbred considered.

Pasterns a little upright. Leggy type with longer fore
Cannons. Elongated ever lasting muscle type. Shoulder
Blade perhaps a touch shorter with slightly forward
Set wither. Back is OK. Hind is strong/reasonable with
A splash of good extra length to femur. Nice moderate/smaller
Head from what I can see. Overall a taller- rather than
Longer type. Dressage, eventing. :)

Further slope to pasterns than expected. Shorter but fairly
Refined limbs (Perhaps a touch more muscle shape considering
Bred). Shoulder blade has good length. Wither a touch set
Forward. Back length is OK and is well supported by a very
Deep girth. Croup is reasonable and leads into a nice stifle set.
A little more chunky and western oriented than I would expect
Breed considered - not that that's a negitive from a riding
Viewpoint. Some good versatility although dressage best go
Considering slope to pasterns.

Pasterns have extra natural slope - not sure about trimming.
Shorter limbs. Very nicely sloped blade with extra length.
Thick but nicely higher set neck. Higher head carriage.
Perhaps a slightly longer body with a touch shorter neck.
Good even back length - and very deep girth adding core
Strength. The croup is very reasonable. Forequarters the
Strength of a good topline. Nice one.

Thanks for the critique; you mentioned a few things I wouldn't have seen. I think the Perch's neck seems shorter because she's angling it towards the camera, as it's pretty decent in length.

I'll play. Here's Soda. Pics are a couple years old, but he was mature (8 yrs old) in the pic, so nothing has changed.

ETA - He's a QH
