Morgan Mare Confo Critique

I'm looking at this 6 year old Morgan Mare. Here are a couple of pics. I will add a link to a video later.

I'm looking to do low level dressage and trail riding. According to her owner, she has a great disposition, loves to go on trails, is an easy keeper. Her sister is a world champion saddle seat horse, so the owner bought her thinking that she would take after her sister, but she doesn't.

She walks and trots fine but has trouble with the canter transition...don't we all?

Can a saddleseat reject make a good low level dressage horse?

Anyway, let me know what y'all think. I'll add the video later today.

Well, she definitely is beautiful!

Those pictures are not any good for judging conformation.

I would be curious as to why she is having issues with her canter transition. A stifle injury, perhaps?

Have her Vet checked before you purchase her. The transition from trot to canter did not show on my system. It could be a training issue or a rider issue.

She is a nice enough horse but lacks reach with her hind end. This may be due, in part, to the front to back ride she is being forced to give (she is being ridden front to back and to be a dressage horse she needs to be ridden back to front). She may be a bit long in the coupling and that will also impact the reach of the hind leg (at the walk the hind foot step should over reach the front foot).

She is just going along. I think she is a nice horse. Would like to see a conformation shot. Better to see her in person.

She's from the UVM lineage. They are known for smaller height and thin legs. There are two types of Morgans. Ones that favor saddlebreds and ones that favor stock breeds like quarter horses. This horse even from the picture, wrong lead in front and right lead in the back, tells me that her conformation and collection skills are a little off. I've had a western pleasure horse that couldn't lope because of his balance. We sent him to a trainer and now he's fine. It will take some time to get through her canter transitions. There's a reason she's not in the show ring. That may be it. She's a total cutie and would make a cool trail horse.

I was wondering about that too. Her foot fall sequence seems a little off. Thanks everyone for your input.
