Hunter jumper quarter horse?

This is my 10 year old quarter horse. She is 15.2 or 15.3. I want to show her in hunter jumpers. Sorry We could NOT get her to look forward.

You might not get her to look forward but you could have stood with the camera film (or image) plane parallel to her and opposite her hip. You were standing opposite her front and about 25 degrees angled to her. As a result, critique of her is going to be unfair or inaccurate.

Most horses are fine with doing low levels of jumping.

What Elana are standing near her need to be at the middle of her barrel. Get some to hold her for you....and that person needs to be out at the end of the leadline some, and getting her attention to keep her head straight.

And just by looking at this pic, when I look at ANY pics, my eyes instantly go to the horse's feet and legs first. She needs farrier work on those front feet. She has absolutely no heel, way to much toe, which is putting undue flexion on her pasterns.

I'm sorry I obviously fail at taking confo pictures. I give up lol. Next time I will stand at her head and someone else can take the picture.

And about her hooves, I have only had her long enough for one trim. It will take multiple trims for her to be okay.

^ good, tell the trimmer to leave the heel and not rasp it down. I truly would love to see a better pic!
