Thanks for this! I post here for information on my riding/horses and do get some really great replies and information from many people. The "pretty horse" comments are nice, but also a waste and don't really help with much.

BTW, whoever mentioned the carrot streches for Murray back when I first showed him off, they are improving for him greatly! He now bends nicely.

I'm a little late in the game, but I'm going to post anyway. =]

I do not know much about conformation, so I look at conformation critique threads to learn. I can scroll down, read some responses, and scroll back up to see what they are seeing. It's a great way to learn.

But when threads get filled up with a bunch of "pretty face" and "don't be so mean" comments, it's a waste of my time to fish out the actual critiques, therefore making it that much harder for me to learn from some of the very knowledgeable horsemen on this thread.

I totally agree with this thread, but we also have to draw attention that when a horse is in the pictures section that doesnt mean critique them, which I have been seeing a lot of, everyone needs to remember the difference betweem the words: critique section and pictures!
Lol

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

Lol

Even more so when a sister thread in the critique has been chewed over, stewed, boiled,baked,fried and grilled to the point it isn't even eatable anymore.

I think it may be time to bump up a couple of these stickies as it seems that many people are not reading them.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I totally agree with this thread. I like to look at the pictures and then read the critques from other posters to see if they are seeing the same things I am. I try and point out good qualities as well as bad so that its not as hard of a pill to swallow but if you only want to hear good things about your horse and your riding, please don't ask for a critique.

LOL I like to look at the pictures too! I don't usually post on critiques because I am not very good at judging confo.

I am hoping to get a few confo pics of both of mine soon (They are kinda fat at the moment :) And would like some serious answers as I would like to compete this summer.

I am also kinda bad for the one line answers as well as saying how pretty the horse is ;)

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

Well I will tell you all you look great riding your horses around! I can't tell the difference! One time im watching Cinnys Whinny get some training from some super horse trainer. Im just sitting there watching them go in circles and the trainer is going "aahhh much better!" Hell it looked all the same to me! The trainer just starts laughing at my comment. BTW I am a locomotive engineer and if you wanna know anything about railroading, im your man! I am the anabel + spider of railroading! Just call me "anader" lol.
