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.
Tess did not ask for critique nor did she at any point indicate that she wanted it. She even posted the photos in a section of the board where it explicitly says atthe top the critique is not welcome.
The Horse Pictures forum here at the Horse Forum is not for critique or breeding discussions. If the same member who has posted a picture in the Horse Pictures forum has brought up breeding her horse elsewhere, discuss it elsewhere. The Horse Pictures forum is a place where people who love their horses and simply want to share their pictures can. It is a non-judgmental environment. If you are looking to give or receive critique, please visit our Horse Critique forum. |
There will be pictures of horses and riders in the Horse Pictures forum that aren't perfect, but it's no more appropriate to point out faults in threads in the Horse Pictures forum than it is to tell strangers on the street that they are too big or their clothes don't match. You are of course welcome to voice concerns about the safety of something depicted in a picture, but we ask that you do so in a friendly, constructive manner.
you do not have to say 'aww pretty ponies' if you don't feel like it, you are more then welcome to say NOTHING.
