    TB mare critique.

    My Lady Livermore, "Sunny," 2008 TB mare. Currently 15.3.

    I know she has quite a few faults, but I'd like to get other opinions as well. She will be a low-level eventer.

    (Yeah, I know, only one picture from one angle. Sue me! )

    Thank you!

    58 views and no critique? I must have a perfect horse!

    I got some more photos today. Not much but better than what I had!

    And just 'cause she's purty.

    I think she looks nice, the only thing I see is the sloping back end, the tail is not set at the highest point of the rear end.
    Nice horse!

    Thank you!

    What I see:
    -Hunter's bump
    -Slight roach
    -Upright pasterns
    -Slight downhill build
    -Slight ewe neck, but I'm hoping that will improve with more riding.
    -Toes out on hinds.
    -Narrow chest.

    Anything else?

    Oh, and just want to add that her feet aren't as long as they look in the front shot, I promise!

    Pretty girl with a lovely expression.
    Her hoof angles, particularly the front, look a little steep to me.
    She stands under herself & is a little cow hocked.
    I wouldn't say that she has a roach or an ewe neck. Her neck muscling is upsidedown and that can be changed. Her back is long with a weaker hind end and a low tail set but not a roach.

    Good luck with her!!

    Her shoulder is rather upright. This will restrict her ability in both dressage and jumping.

    I can't think of anything to add that hasn't been mentioned, other than she has nice low-set hocks, with short pasterns and canon bones. Overall, she's a really cute girl- lovely face and color!

    Hello, I love your girl's colouring she's really sweet. Her neck and quarters wouldn't worry me as she's still young and will hopefully develop with correct riding/ training. She looks like she has a nice short strong back and deep chest from what I can see. Her front pasterns are a little upright but not too bad, and I'm not sure if it's the way she's stood but in a couple of the pictures she looks slightly over at the knee and back on her hocks and a bit cow-hocked and narrow at the base with her front legs. That however, is nit-picking. Overall she's quite good and she has such a nice face and kind eye. I have never come across a hunter's bump though what's that? Similar to a roached back?
