The above picture is still not an accurate picture.....her feet are on a down hill slope which will cause the angle to read higher than what it is. I would like to see her standing square on concrete so you can actually take a protractor and measure the angle.

I still don't see up right pasterns.......I see a pastern that is closer to 50 degrees but that is still with in the norm......as it is 45 to 50 degrees.

Agree with supernova- those are not upright pasterns, they are actually longish and with more than ideal slope. However, if that's the case, that is not what would typically cause a choppy gait. Overly long/sloped pasterns will actually cushion the gait but potentially cause soundness issues in the long run due to overuse of the tendons...i would also look to the shoulder or even the hind end engagement as a potential cause for choppy stride

Thanks girls I agree and don't see upright pasterns in these pictures although I'm still and always learning I'm not sure what the guy at my barn is talking about......I'm almost afraid to ask about her shoulder, I think I know what a decently sloped shoulder looks like and hers isn't as full and sloped as I'd like but I really don't see to much there either...oh well always learning.

Her shoulder should be the same angle as her pasterns.....from what I can see her shoulder appears to be slightly steeper.

I think it might be more how she is using herself rather than her actual conformation.
