    If you don't have the right pictures - don't post a thread asking for critique. Posting bad pictures then acknowledging that they are bad doesn't help anyone. That's the biggest issue I have with this section. People do not post adequate pictures.

    And saying that you are the only one around your horse isn't an excuse. Find someone that can take the pictures or hold your horse while you take them. Posting bad pictures just waste's peoples time.

    The other thing that is a bit irritating is all the "well I don't know about critique but he's a pretty horse' comments. This is a critique section. Pretty horse comments should probably go in the horse pictures section. I like reading other critiques to see if they fall in line with what I see, but when there are a bunch of useless comments it's really irritating to wade through.

    This link has some really good info on taking pictures. And thanks for starting this thread. I just PM'd the Admin about these issues in this section recently!

    I agree with you people, because I have seen some people get all defensive and mean when asked for critique *coughbarnprincesscough*
    but seriously,I'm scared to ask for critique sometimes because people can and DO get nasty when you post. I just send a link to some people I know are good critiquers on here. :)

    I've never seen anyone be nasty. The truth is, there are some horses out there with flat out ugly conformation. And we love our horses and that can be a hard pill to swallow. That's why if you are going to post a picture for critique, be prepared to hear things about your horse you may not like to hear.

    Most of us know what the flaws are in our horse and love them anyway. And that's good! No horse is perfect. But there are a fair amount of people that post in this section expecting to hear pretty horsie comments and flip out when they don't.

    The pretty horsie picture/comments need to go in the horse pictures area, not here.

    How do you learn if you cannot take advice and criticism from those who are wiser and more experienced than yourself?
    I soak up all the information I can like a sponge, if someone comes out with a response to a question that I hadn't thought of, I'll always store it in my memory bank because you never know, one day I may just need to use that piece of advice.

    What I do now is see what responses have been made, how the OP responds and how good the video or picture is, then I may respond.

    Great point Spyder. If you see people already having trouble with a poster asking for a critique and taking it badly or having posted terrible pictures or videos, just leave it alone, lest you increase the problem by replying yourself.

    I can't blame you Spyder, it's frustrating when I see knowledgeable horseman (not simply riders) get blown off by someone who may never advance beyond ignorant.

    Actually if someone posts the horse he/she wants to buy or just owns, and horse is really nice looking and doesn't have much to be critiqued for I don't see any problem saying how nice the horse is. It is a critique as well (or to be precise the opinion).

    You are 100% correct. The problem is when the horse looks like a donkey and when that is pointed out, the owner gets upset with the one who broke their bubble. Now, there is a right and a wrong way to do a critique. Telling the OP that they are a moron for owning such an animal rather then just pointing out it's faults - that is wrong; but the op telling a member that they were just looking looking for positive posts is just as wrong. Lastly, someone who says "I don't know about critiquing but your horse is pretty" is just wasting space and not accomplishing anything.

    It does waste space and is of no value and this section is riddled with it.
