    Smile tell me what you think of my QH

    I'm still learning about conformation. My QH mare has a very rough trot and lope. I'm thinking that it has to do with her age, she is only 6. Please tell me what you think of her! (yes I know her halter is too loose...)

    She is Beautiful! Do you have any pics of her standing still. A photo from the side ? I find most QH are rough.

    I ran out and got some more pics :) please excuse the mud, it just rained. Also it looks like she is asleep in one of them o_0 she has shoes on her front hoofs, and she is on a hill so idk if that will throw of the pics too much :/

    First off, she's gorgous!
    Now, looking past that lol as for her conformation, She's got a nice shoulder and good depth through her girth
    Back is not too short but neither is it very long
    Possible high in the wither
    Hard to really judge her legs without her standing square, but the fronts don't appear to have anything wrong with them structurally
    Pasterns are a good length too, though her hooves have quite a bit of slope to them.
    Hindquarter look fair
    Again, can't really judge her hind legs in those photos, but I don't see any serious disfigurements lol
    Possibly cowhocked

    Even better pics are needed. She needs to be set up square, looking straight ahead, and you need to be standing dead center of her barrel.

    ^ I agree. Tell that to my little filly, she's smooth as butter!

    I find roughness of gait corresponds almost directly with the length and slope of the pastern. A short, upright pastern will be more rough than a longer, more sloped pastern. That doesn't mean that with some training, a rough horse can learn to lift its back, use its haunches, and give you a nice, smooth ride.
