    Re-read what you wrote here: *MY* horse. Not your trainer's horse! Who will be paying the fees when her feet cause her lameness, tendon strain, arthritis? Who will be crying? YOUR horse, YOUR decision. Get her feet looked after.

    Other than feet, I tend not to critique as I don't have that kind of knowledge. I'll throw in my 2 cents, which may be worth only 1/2 cent though:
    I don't have an issue with her weight per se, but I would think she needs more muscling in her back and neck? She is on the thinner side, but athletic and the two often go together. I do agree that she seems toed out in the back; slightly in the front.

    She has beautiful eyes and what a wonderful head shot!

    My trainer honestly doesnt respect my opinion but she is my employer and I don't think I could get a job any where else.
    (her eyes are bulging because she was veeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrry interested in the camera she wanted to eat it)

    ^well that sucks. The employer and not respecting your opinion part. I actually read an article from a farrier that was trying to support this idea of long toes and forward heels on SBs -- didn't work though. My horses came to me with long toes from the trotting track too.

    Anyway, I still think she is pretty and very attentive. Nice horsey.

    She's a beautiful horse, but get those feet done! She has too much toe and no heel. Especially in back- her heels are way undershot.

    I'm not even talking about that picture. I've seen this many times before. I know what I'm talking about.

    As far as the trainer being your boss...irrelevant. Go hire a farrier and have the feet done properly. It's YOUR horse. Your boss can NOT fire you for that.

    As well I'll add...there come times in our life where we make pivotal decisions and those decisions make us who we are. What we believe in and what we stand for. You think on that for awhile.
