    She looks great!!!! I'm glad you got her too :P
    She's probably one of the most intelligent horses you'll ever have... We have a Kiger, and he is the most sweetest and SUPER intelligent horse alive (minus his apparent ADHD lol)... But that kind of kindness and intelligence tends to be typical of kigers :)
    They make good all around and dressage horses too, and the 'float' is also typical xP
    Do you by any chance what her pedigree is?

    Yep Dustbunny, I've been retraining her mane from the left side to the right. I'm more accustomed to the mane being on that side (and I believe it's more traditional for it to be on that side). Plus, having her mane on the right side means that her BLM brand is visible on the left side of her neck. I like that people can see that she is a genuine mustang who is neither crazy or ugly but is in fact a fantastic horse!

    Nakotaheaven, her "pedigree" is the fact that she is from Riddle HMA, one of the two Herd Management Areas that the Kiger mustangs originate from. She is a wild born Kiger who was adopted from the BLM. ^_^

There's still a little ways to go with her topline development I think.

    Surprisingly, she won a 2nd place ribbon in a schooling show halter class (the class had 8-9 other horses). I found it so gratifying to know that someone else thinks that she isn't too terribly put together.

    What do you see? What looks better? What could be improved with more work? What conformational faults are "here to stay"?

    Now:


    Before:
    That long loin connection is there to stay, but she looks great! She has fitted up nice! The conformation stuff will always be there, but she looks so much more fit, loved and conditioned! Great job!
