IMO......Critiquing

I have looked at many horses on this forum.

Posters are asking for critiques of their horses, many for halter.

I have not seen one fit horse.

Fit is the name of the game in halter.

Then there is the question.....what other horses will be in that class???

Again....JMO.

What is the point of this?

Cross Country- The act of hurling yourself and your equine partner at a stationary object with poise and grace while attempting to survive...

So? Why post this? Just like saying my horse wont do well at dressage because she is a pony.

Not at all.

A pony will never be a horse.

Any horse will look better being fit.

So you're saying that people shouldn't ask for critique on their halter horses unless they are in good shape? -confused-

I find that a little unfair because sometimes some horses may be in the best shape of their lives but still have a belly.
Like my horse Ruester for example. He has amazing conformation and has won a few halter classes, even though he has a short back so his belly always hangs down.

Unless they are planning on doing breed shows or big shows in general i see no problem with it. Not to mention generally they are asking before the horse is actually doing the showing which is perfectly fine. My boy os in great shape but he still looks tubby not all horses slim up like halter bred and raised show horses no matter what you do.

Sure they will.

Any horse can be made to look better as long as they can do the work.
