    Thoroughbred Mare Critique

    Please critique my lovely 15.2 Thoroughbred mare. She has three quality gaits. Curious of the opinions of others and perhaps what work you think she is suited for. Thank you.

    A mixture of older and newer photos...

    She looks very uphill with a typical TB prominent wither. A little too long backed, which could lead to future swayback. Her pasterns seem a bit upright and her hind seems a little camped under, but it's hard to tell from the way she is standing. She also looks over at the knee in the front, especially in the first and last pictures. Her neck is tied in low and her shoulder looks a bit steep, which could prevent flowing movement. Her hind end is a little off looking to me, in the hip area.

    Overall she could use some more muscle in her neck and hind end. I could see her doing dressage ok up to a certain level since she might struggle with collection and fluidity.

    She has such a kind face though, I bet she's a total sweetheart! (:

    I won't say anything because it's good ole Flicka. I can recognized that horse and rhythm beads anywhere.

    How old is she now Abby? Hero is pushing 12 this year. Hard to believe I got him when he was 7.

    Haha It really is such a small world. What are the odds were run into eachother on a forum?

    Glad to see Flicka doing well! She looks so happy and healthy!

    Glad you still have. :)

    Oh she's my lifer :) She couldn't get rid of me if she tried. I'm sure you know how I feel lol. I am potentially considering breeding her within the next year to a nice Hanoverian stallion (that will hopefully strengthen some of her weaker points). For now it's just a possibility, we'll see.

    Oh indeed I kow the feeling all to well! I'll keep an eye on facebook hopefully to see updates about a pregnant Flicka!!! Are you planning on training and selling the baby?

    Training and keeping. It would be my next riding horse - hope to focus on dressage and maybe some CC. I'll keep you updated :)

    Glad Hero is doing so well, too!
