Smile Conformation Ratings

Conformation ratings based on bone structure only.

I do write for several magazines on this subject and may provide some useful information including.
  • General athletic ability
  • Versatility
  • English/western bias
  • Sport horses, barrel racing, stock horses, dressage, eventing, dressage etc.
  • All breeds and types.
Post a good photo and lets see how we go.

Really need good side on photos from a low angle, and from a good distance of approx 15m.

Cant obtain alot from this photo, except to say more of a refined, longer striding type suited to english.

I only advise on conformation, Im sure there will be others happy to help out with training tips.

Appears to have a longer body type, but hard to rate with confidence from photos provided.

Here is my first pony, Amanda. 12. hands, 20+ years old. We think she was a Quarter horse/Shetland cross.
This picture was from when she first came, she became a much better weight with regular riding.

I'd love to get another opinion on Roxy. She's a 7 year old QH/Tb/Whelsh/Belgian and I use her for hunters, however in most of these pictures she was about 6. Sorry the two correct confo pictures aren't great. It's very difficult to get her to stand still long enough while she's squared up nicely. Also, the head on picture was when she was 5 (so no, she is not that fat now) but it might give you another angle on her front legs. If you can't see anything with these pictures, that's fine. Thanks! :)

Talking

can you do Bakkir for me? He is an SE Arabian. 2 yrs old and a pasture puff in these pics. He will be my trail horse and I hope to be able to do CTR's and Endurance with him.

Sorry neither of these have her standing perfectly square but the angle should be good.
