Hey, all! So I've been wanting to get conformation critiques on my new mare but I keep forgetting or postponing it. Now that I'm posting, I'm committed!
These aren't the greatest conformation shots but this gives me the incentive to REMEMBER to get better ones when I see her tomorrow. I only just bought this mare. We've had a few rides together and she's still green. In the cantering video that was our... 2nd ride (?) at my barn - 3rd ride in total. In the trotting video that was the day after she arrived. I figured I'd offer a glimpse of her movement. Again, she's very green with a scattered 90 days of training (the training was here and there over the course of a year or two due to previous owner's limited time and opportunity to have her started).
She's not downhill like some of the pictures look. When I had her on level ground her withers were level with her croup, if not a smidge uphill.
The last video is just for entertainment. I was letting her roam the ring and play around with stuff. She knocked over the cones but then decided she would pick one back up.
Anyways, she's a 16.1 dark bay Oldenburg mare. 6 years old, a daughter of Rosenthal, and a granddaughter of Wolkenstein II. I want to jump with her and maybe one day try dressage/eventing. She's a bit chubby. She has a couple fat rolls right now Last fall is when she was last ridden before I got on her, and even then it was just an occasional ride here and there.
Aaaand just another one for some entertainment. I think we should go pro in soccer
