aww she's sooo pretty

She toes out alot in back, and at least one foot in the front (probably both though)
She has a thin neck, but with more muscle it would look really nice I think
Something about her neck/chest area I don't like...possibly neck doesn't tie in good, but not sure
Mucling in front (besides neck) looks good, but definately needs more muscles in her hind-quarters
Needs a tiny bit of work on her topline also

What I do like about her conformation is the way her front legs are shaped. ......and her face!!!

Why did you cut her tail?!?!?! hehe
She's sooo pretty...I loooove that face of hers!

She looks a little butt-high, & looks like she has a short back.
She has a very sweet face, & kind eye! :)

Ride more, worry less.

it might just be the way the pictures are angled...but to me it doesn't look like she has much muscles in her hind-quarters...but if you say there is, I'm sure there is

Collecting properly, head on the vertical and hind-quarters enaged. Alot of long and low work...if you are comfortable just ride her in a halter and lead rope for reins. Use the lead rope only to do emergency stops and see if she'll keep her head down low. Alot of flexion...circles, turns, anything where she is using her neck.

For the hind end, try some trotting up hills, or collection work.

Yeah her head is like beautiful *drool* lol

it's hard to say what she one pic she is up hill but in another she is down hill, all i can say is that she look's 100% better then what she did at the old barn and 100 % happier too! her coat is really shinney and much better looking!! chances neck is a little too thin but with a lot of work it will gain muscel, i love the coloer of her halter too!!!

lol I think its cause its a rolling hay feild she was standing on so idk but she is still growing.some. ill see if I can get some pictures in the barn on cement sometime lol

ya could doing a lot of flexing excersizes help?? like on ground makes her head turn a the way to her side and hold it there on both sides.

or maybe doing a lot of tight circles making her follow her head?

thanks for noticing she looks better ya she is happier she more playful

ya we were using her show halter :P the blue one. Im gonna get her a leather one at some point.

Cow-hocked and pigeon toed.
She's a bit sickle hocked.
Awkward croup angle as well...
Nice color though.

How old
What breed
What are you using her for (or want to use her for)?

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.
