    Anybody like to critique my tb gelding?

    This is Mitchell, some of you know him from the forum, the pictures probably aren't the best but do what you will

    -But please critique the horse, not me, I know my riding is discusting especially in the last picture, hands up, leaning forwards etc, it was discusting on my part I will be the first to admit it .
    And in the first photo I think the most obvious thing would be my hands, again. -Forgive me I am trying to correct it all

    He is gorgeous! I know nothing of conformation sorry - but he looks great.

    Its hard to tell by the picture you took if I had better pictures I could be more detailed. Specially without the splint boots. Pasterns look a bit upright along with the shoulder, he almost looks buck kneed but its almost impossible to tell with those splint boots. Ewe neck, long back, a little bit post legged. Overall he's a very nice looking TB I don't see anything major.

    Thank's haha, I just wish he behaved great to, but we're working on that.

    In the North Island, but over public internet I'd rather not specify a closer area.

    That is OK I understand. Terrible earthquake in Christchurch again. I have a lot of family over there. They are all ok thankfully.

    Yeah I've been watching the news on it ever since I got home from school. It's so **** scary to think it's all happening here for once, we should almost start a new thread on it I know there's a few kiwi's scattered round here somewhere.

    He's cute! I would shorten your stirrups a hole, Looks like your reaching for them. This will also help you lower your heel and get your leg behind you.

    Is that mainly in the first photo right? I did end up shortening them after I lost both stirrups in his canter (although it's so powerful I could probably lose them even if my boots were glued to them )
    I'm lucky though 'cause I learnt to ride on the most uncomfortable horse ever (sorry bubbles) and I still can't sit her canter right, so Mitch's gaits seem so smooth and his trot is a breeze to sit to.

    However I quite often ride with them that length on bubbles because I find I rely less on them so if I lose them it's no big deal.. Plus the saddle sits differently on her as I use a foam pad (her back is sunken with age etc)

    What kind of saddle is that? The seat looks super deep but it doesn't look like a dressage saddle... looks comfy...
