    I know Duffy I would rather people pm it to me instead of putting it on ym thread that was meant for photos, but that's besides the point now I don't care.

    Thanks for nice comments on Tess :)

    I can see what you're saying, but if other people can learn from it too ;)
    Like I had no idea about the bandages haha!

    She is lovely, I prefer solid colours normally, but she's a beaut!

    Exactly Duffy, I really understand that PT wants everyone just to admire the pics, and I do get that, but the comments that have been made aren't so much criticism but suggestions. If they are pm'd then others don't get a chance to learn.

    I agree with both Duffy and Golden. This is an open forum, and I am not going to "ooo and aaaahh" when I see something that tells me something is missing.

    The back that is hollow, like PintoTess's horse has in these pictures, shows that there is something missing, and I wanted to point it out, so that the OP understands that there is something needed to work on. It wasn't meant to say "oh my gosh, you are such a bad rider" but to say "hey, do you see this? This isn't correct"

    I hope others see the pictures, and see that the back isn't rounded nor being lifted - which shows that the horse isn't being worked correctly. So that the light bulbs over their heads can turn on.

    I am by no means, a perfect rider. I have faults and make errors, but I along with others, are here to learn, share, grow and become more "educated".

    It is one thing to see a horse in a "frame" but another to see if the horse is being worked correctly.

    I understand its not a crit board, but we can all help each other.. I would love people to crit my pics or just give me some helpful hints. If they didn't.. I'd carry on!

    Take as a plus, PintoTess, that these people care enough to give you a helping hand :) I have to pay a FORTUNE for advice that has been given here ;)

    You never have to "ooh and aah" over anyone's posted photos of their horse in the Horse Picture sections. YOu are always free to say nothing.

    There is a fine line between offering advice in this picture forum to someone whose posted pics show an error that might be dangerous, such as incorrectly done up tack, and advice on how to improve their riding itself. Since PintoTess admitted that she is working without a trainer, you can always ask her if she would like some advice before offering it.

    Sorry PT, don't want to derail further, but how can you bandage half way down the fetlock? The fetlock is a joint so you can't stop mid joint you would have all sorts of issues. I've been taught to bandage down to the fetlock, then make a V at the front with your bandage, so you 'cup' the fetlock joint and then carry on bandaging back up.

    Just as another aside, I have a damaged knee, I wear a neoprene brace, with metal supports through the day, but can't sleep in it. I've taken to wrapping my knee in a long polo wrap at night, and it provides a very pleasant warmth, and just enough support to keep me reasonable comfortable
