Conformation critique

11 year old Paint mare. 14.3hh. Used for trail riding and being prepared for 4-H showing. Laid back temperament, willing attitude, has a tendency to be lazy for inexperienced riders.

OMG That buckskin (?) paint is BAH UTIFUL! Not that your horse isn't, she's a pretty girl. What I can see (still learning) is that she is downhill and post legged in the hind. But others can correct me if I'm wrong.

100% Anti-Slaughter and PROUD of it!

Lucky you! lol I just noticed the stripe. She certainly is an eye catcher.

She is downhill, & her back legs are quite straight. I love her face though & i agree, the buckskin is gorgeous!

*DROOL* and holy bum! Both of your horses are gorgeous! I am sorry, I don't have a critique, I just wanted to tell you your horses are beautiful.

I want to give her big, heart-shaped booty a big ol'hug! LOVE her! She looks comfy to ride. I agree she is a little straight in the hind pasterns and her hoof angles are a little wonky.

What do you do with them?

She is pretty, especially her head, which is her nicest feature. She has a very long hip (croup) and is post legged with rather upright pasturns all around. she is square both front and back and has a nice neck, which ties in nicely at the wither area. Back length looks good, yes, downhill, but most Paints are.
Not exceptional horse, but overall a pretty good looking mare with the sweetest face!
