Welsh Pony Confo Critique

So I took Bubba to a groundwork clinic yesterday and was able to get a couple confo shots as he was waiting his turn.

A little info. He's a welsh pony, around 17-18 years old, and we adopted him 10 years ago. He's pretty chunky which I'm totally aware of and trying to fix. He's pretty much been a pasture puff the past ten years but I'm slowly bringing him back into work with some light lunging and such.




The best I could get of his left side :/




The best I could get from behind. He does NOT like me standing behind him, no matter how far away I am.

Annnd just for fun, a couple action shots. :)

What a nice looking horse.! I love Welsh ponies. this is just super well built, in my opinion. yes, chubby, but not that bad. I like everything about him; strong shoulder, short canons, great hind end, good hock angles, beautiful head.

Thanks, Tiny! I'm a fan of welsh ponies as well. They're such thick, stocky guys that can withstand a lot. His real name is actually Lightning and he lives up to the name. He is crazy fast and can turn on a dime. He's got fat pockets by his tail head which I'm working to get rid of but we're taking it slow on getting him back into work after being a pasture puff for so long. On the bright side, he loves to run around. Henny's bulked up on muscle in the two months they've been back together as they run and play with each other all the time. :)

Aghh, what a cutie!

I love his build. Great, straight legs, good shoulder, strong coupling... the only thing I can find to pick on is that his hindquarters have a lot less muscle than his shoulders but that is obviously due to the fact that he has spent half of his life as a pasture puff.

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

Haha thank you, Endiku :) He definitely needs some toning in his hind end. His shoulder, however, is so muscled it's almost scary LOL. He is technically my mom's horse, but she rarely ever even comes out to see him so he's pretty much mine as I now spend as much time with him as I do with Henny.

That's how he was able to develop bad habits and is still very spooky and untrusting with us as he's just sat there and lived a spoiled pony life. But now that I've "opened my eyes" in working with Henny, I find myself loving working with Bubba. He is SO willing to please it's ridiculous. He doesn't have a mean bone in his body but he is quick to react out of fear. I'm hoping I can bring him out of his shell and make him more comfortable with the help of my trainer. :)

Haha thank you, Toto. I'm sure Bubba appreciates you fueling his ego.

I love this guy, he's adorable. I wouldn't worry too much about his weight, welsh mountain ponies are normally a little bit chunky. And he's got a really nice coat, you obviously take good care of him
