Why is there not a single pic of her without saddle, squared up, so people can see how she is built? I understand 1or 2 riding pics, but really, we get the point, you can ride her, now let us see what she looks like!

It was my opinion and I was asked why and I explained it two or three times now. That has NOTHING to do with her confirmation. I even said that I don't know much about confirmation. I don't need to tuck anything away in my horse vocablulary because I already know confirmation is a big thing for the breed standard and for what you want to do with the horse.

My horse has a long back and I have been told he is built like a bus on here but he has the best personality I could ever ask for. To me he is beautiful because I am probably just partial to him. Just because a horse does't have perfect confirmation doesn't mean they are still ugly animals and don't deserve a chance to live in a good caring home. I still enjoy riding my horse on trail rides with friends or alone. His horrible confirmation doesn't hold us back from what we like to do together.

That is a fairly pretty Appy, true. I think she is going to have a hard time on hills and obstacles for trail riding tho... Guess it depends on where you are riding. Mountain, no, Plains, sure.

IMHO

Alexis, she was making the point that confIrmation and confOrmation mean two completely separate things.
You confirm an appointment.
A horse conforms to breed standards.

She wasn't being rude against the horse.

Are you being purposefully obtuse? My point was that you were misspelling (still, actually) the word confOrmation - you are using the incorrect word, so perhaps you could use a little bit of assistance with that horse vocabulary after all.....?

My apologies for attempting to educate someone on the appropriate vocabulary........

All you had to do was politely say I spelled it wrong.

She is thin, and yes she does need muscle. I'm REALLY concerned about the back and the fact that she looks to have some DSLD going on with those pasterns. Train wreck...look elsewhere.
