    Confo critique

    I've never really gotten into how to critique a horse or why this is bad or why that's wrong etc. But i'd love to know what you guys see with my two mares. These are the best photos I have . Both are tbs. The chestnut has raced and had 7 babies, she's turning 18 in march. The grey is turning 8 in may and never raced or bred. (if your curious on gingers story you can see it Photo Album - allforhorses)

    Onto the photos ( keep in mind ginger was thin in some of these)

    "mean nanny jean" Aka ginger

    please no riding critique..

    Luna's are comming now please wait untill I post hers

    The first one, ginger, her back looks 'disconnected' to her bum. Which I've never seen that before so I don't know what its called....
    And she is lacking quite a bit of muscle. But her face is cute.

    Haha I have a kitty named luna :P

    Well if you look at the link I posted, she's a rescue =]. She's come a long way. She's just FINALLY , this month, hit her fat weight .so now its muscle and suppling time. This spring is real work time. We've done jumping and a lot of basic dressage up untill last month. She's a fast fast learner. We started collection, which she was doing awesome then she got a hematoma and went lame and now its snowing so im just hopping on her over her blankie to walk around the yard.

    As for her back, I do have a chiro comming at some point haha. I heard its common in racehorses that it 'tears' from excertion (sp?) but it dosent cause any issues or any pain to her. But I want it checked out anyway.

    Something weird with the back - I can't tell what's going on there. I don't think it's a chiro issue or anything like that, it's surely conformation. Super high tail set, over a the knee, built uphill, pigeon toed, . I don't like her hip. I can't tell you why exactly, something just looks off about it. It's probably because she's not up to prime weight and condition yet.

    Roach backed. That's the biggest issue I see with her. Otherwise she's a pretty cute little mare. Her neck ties in a little low, but that's not going to effect her very much. Her hip is a little steep too - but it could be the angle of the camera. Some of her with her head up and without a saddle would be better.

    No confo critique, but that western saddle looks like it is too wide for both mares, looks low on the withers and rocking... I would definitely get that checked out...

    Cute horses though.

    ^ yes I know as I stated that they don't fit already. I don't use them.

    The saddle on the grey is actually too narrow.

    It'd help if you could get proper conformation pics for both horses..
