But, as for conformation . . . Well, I see a steep shoulder, a long back, nice hind legs with nice hocks, though a tiny bit posty, front legs are on the edge of being over straight (not 100% sure because I can't see well with the wraps on), neck shows over-development of the neck muscle on the underside (does she brace against the bit?)
How tall is she?
Thanks, I hate her eyes though! They just look so mean... Maybe not in the pictures posted but in person its horrible.
Is it me or does she also have a weird neck tie in, or is that just her steep shoulder making it seem like that? I'm still learning about conformation...
Not usually, but sometimes all she wants to do is run and will be a little harder in the mouth then usual and will fall on the forehand. We've been working a lot on rhythm, balance, straightness, and relaxation.
She is 14.1hh.

Thanks, I don't know what happened to her this winter but it was just really tough for her I guess. She had a blanket on, got double the amount of hay she usually got, high fat grain, and wasn't being worked at all. This spring I power packed (strong dewormer) her and that is seeming to help along with the little grass she has right now, but she was on a regular deworming schedule before so I don't know what was going on.
