Here is one that I think is pretty good. It's off a horse website I came across (and the horse on it's own is lovely which helps)

Very important thread.

One thing that may not have been mentioned is to stand at least 10 or 15m from the horse, and to also crouch down to approx its elbow height (no lower).

Both of the above help negate misleading photo proportions. Although you can allows for such angles, the less you need to estimate or allow for the more accurate the result.

PS: Open stance with head held in a natural position also helps.

This might be a dumb question but is it possible that one of my horses is unable to square up? I can't get her to do it!!!!

Well being square isn't a natural position I've found. You have to teach your horse to do it. I'm still working out how to do that but I've found fixing the backs helps.. then you just have to line up the fronts. If you do it the other way, the backs won't line up as easily.

I worked on it today actually, she seems to not be catching on as quick as i'd expect but I have been able to obtain it! She's a slight bit toed out in the back so it never looks right anyways ):< me being horrible at showmanship and her not being the slight bit interested in it has just proved to be a disaster lol.

But tips like yours do help && provide some future encouragement!!
