This is the first time I have ever asked anyone to critigue this little gal. In the pictures she is only two and a half years old and has filled out more now that she is four, just turned four. Let me know what you think of her.
Chey is a spotted saddled. Her top speed was clocked at 28 miles an hour. She is a absolute dream to ride and is an amazing horse to train. She is extremely smart and willing. She handles well in anytype of situation. She's been out riding alone and she has also been riding with over five hundred horses in a group. She's was a dream to train and is such a joy to ride. She goes anywhere and everywhere. She is extremely sensitive to her cues and all takes is just a slight touch for her to respond. She gives everything she does her all.
She had only been in training for five weeks when these pictures were taken.
I don't see anything wrong with this mare :) She has a gorgeous head, straight legs, big shoulder and I personally would like to see more hindquarters but that's just because ima QH ad paint kinda guy. Looks lovely!
One of things we have been doing lately is uphill work and poles. Her top line and hind quarters have come along nicely. She has sooo much stamina it's crazy I have never had her work so hard she starts blowing or showing signs of getting tired. I paid six hundred for her and I have never been so please with a horse.
We are in the process of moving but will get ne confo pictures of everybody.
That is one nicely built horse. She is just about perfect. Nice legs, good shoulder, big feet, pretty head. He neck is a bit thick at the throatlatch and her hindquareter a bit undermuscled compared to her slightly chunky belly and shoulder (she looks a we bit overweight)
Super , super nice mare!
Have you gotten her feet fixed since then? With those under-run heels and pancaking, you're setting yourself up for soundness problems, if not. Nice mare, though she does have that bull neck, and it appears that her spine sticks up rather high over her back. Does that cause her any issues?
Cheyennes feet are not pancaked and in these pictures she had her shoes on for six weeks which is too long for her. And lets see, no, its a year and a half down the road, nope havent touched her feet at all. These pictures are OLD And, like I said, she has only been in training for five weeks when these pictures were taken so no, she doesn't have much of a top line cause she is only two and a half years old and is just now starting to learn what riding is and what work is. I had not had her long. Six weeks at the max. Cause the day after I got her I had shoes set. Not sure where " under run heals " are coming cause this girl has an inch of straight heal. Maybe you need better pictures to look at. All walking horses have a higher set spine. It's part of being a gaited horse. She just hasn't been worked long enough to build the proper muscles.
