[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.


Shorter limbs, flat and long arm, closed shoulder and elbow joints, blade slightly upright but has good extra length. The fore has scope for stride extension and appears as the strength of the topline.

The back may be a touch longer but can't complain, it is very well supported by a very deep girth.

The crop is certainly shorter, and if that hind leg was pulled under correctly I believe the upper hind bone structer would be shown as being significantly lean.

Nice height/length ratio and I suggest would throws to English once fit. Best on flat, probably dressage stuff suits best.

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! :)

Well proportioned limbs, closed elbow and shoulder joints leading to slightly upright blade meaning wither is slightly set forward. Neck set is nice.

Back a touch on the longer side, although it is supported by a fairly deep girth. The hind is OK and probably the strength of the topline.

Nice even height/length ratio, leaner muscle type throws bias slightly to english. Hunting suits.

Thank you! She was a wonderful pony, I only ever did trail riding with her and a little jumping.
She kept up well with my mom's Arab and was always sound barefoot on the rocky side roads.

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


Thoroughbred leggy, flat arm, wither slightly setr forward. Back is longer, girth is slightly shallow, possibly a small issue with back. Hind is leaner.

Overall a good & even height/length ratio. Leaner muscle type and throws to english, can probably jump but may be best suited to flat work.

Paint/Pinto filly, coming 2 in march, sorry the pictures arent great.





Age considered.

Fairly leggy, prefered closed shoulder and elbow joints. Blade may be slightly short, although this can be expected to lengthen with maturity.

Back a touch longer, girth is a little shallow encouraging stride extension. Hind on the leaner side.

Overall may develop towards a longer body type, leaner muscles indicating endurance and a relaxed longer stride. Throws to english. Flat dressage work likely to suit.

Even arabina limb length, arm a tough upright, shoulder joint slightly open. Distance between chest and wither via the topline shorter than ideal.

Back a touch on the longer side, girth is shallow, which suits this horse. Hind is also lean which aids endurance.

Very elegant type. Nice height/length ratio, refinded relaxed/endurance muscle type as per breed. Although hind is lean, I fancy gallops/low jumps may be best option over pure endurance, see how you go.

8 year old QH gelding. He'll be 10 this spring. These pics are a little old, but he hasn't changed much. A bit out of shape here as he was not being ridden do to an injury.

Could you possibly tell me anything with Buttercup? She's 11 or 12 and is grade, but thought to be a quarter pony. I barrel race and pole bend her along with a few other speed events and I show her in halter/showmanship and a few pleasure classes and fun shows.

Thanks so much! That's very similar to what I was thinking about her conformation. It's good to know I was fairly accurate
