Smile Tb/Warmblood Mare

This is my 8yr old, 15.2hh mare. 3/4 TB and 1/4 Dutch Warmblood, by Musing and out of an Amiro mare. At the moment I'm doing lower levels of dressage with her and some jumping for fun. She's forward and has three lovely gaits to ride, would just love some opinions on her from other people! I know what I see in her conformation, but I know horse owners are always quite partial to their own horse Let me know if you need more pictures

Not a bad looking mare ;)
Honestly spoken, however, her shoulder angle is a bit on the steep side
Narrow through the chest but nice and deep (more of a Thoroughbredy thing)
Neck set is not bad, but again like many TB's, it is very lightly muscled
Has the high withers of a TB
Short back
Not over at the knee but she does appear to be slightly buck-kneed
Very short and sharp slope from the point of her croup to her croup
Lean hindquarters
A bit posty in the hindlegs
But this all considered, none of her flaws are severe and so I cannot see them inhibiting her much in your riding

Thanks for your input lilruffian :) that's funny that you say her shoulder angle is a bit on the steep side, I've heard both that and that it's nicely sloping... I suppose it's partly opinion and experience too! Her short back does give her a bouncy ride, especially the trot... not always easy to sit ;)

I do not see a steep shoulder. I see a correct shoulder with a point of shoulder angle that is also adequate. She is a little tied in at the knee and a little weak through the coupling. The latter can be improved with proper work.. and lots of trotting up long hills on a loose rein. She is a little down hill in build. She is quite straight through the hocks.

Get her doing gymnastics in jumping, trotting over poles and up long hills with you in a two point (and you in a two point over poles.. with the poles 12 inches off the ground.. (work up to this.. and work up to 8 poles). This will help her stretch her topline and build her abdominal muscles so her "ring of muscles" works correctly. Her neck muscles tell me she is not being ridden forward enough and head DOWN and reaching for the ground.. building her ring.

Trotting hills on a loose rein could really help her a LOT.
