    I think the previous posters covered it. She's super cute! Looks like a sweet mare! :)

    I'm wondering what kind of bit you're using... The pictures aren't close enough to tell for sure but it appears like you're using a hanging/baucher snaffle (I added a picture for identification), upside down?


    If so, just so you know, they're supposed to be attached like this:

    Just so you know. :)

    She's super super cute.

    I'm not the one riding her I don't know who that lady is I guess she's some lady from the rescue place the mare is at I guess I just used the pics from the rescues website because I didn't take any pics when I went out there but that's not me and I don't know what bit she's using or anything

    Yes, her back is a bit long, but that will be all the more reason to make sure you teach and ask her to work properly and round up the way she is supposed to. The reason she looks so weak backed in the under saddle pictures is because she's plodding around on her front end and her entire body is really hollow and strung out.

    Bring her home, get her working the way she should, build up some muscle on her, and she'll make an amazing little trail horse...especially if she was a ranch horse in her former life.

    Don't know if anyone cares to know but I decided to get her and my adoption application got approved and I passed the home check for the adoption process and I get to bring her home Saturday!!!
