Critique Aura!

5 y/o APHA mare, 60 ish days under saddle.

I know she needs some weight and that is something we will be working on as well as muscling her up. Her feet are getting done on Monday. And I am aware she toes out in the rear.

What do you guys see?

It looks like she has a bit of a ewe neck, and her hind pasterns look upright to me (especially in that last picture). She has a nice shoulder, a pretty head, and I love her coloring!

She does appear to have a slightly ewed neck as well as a "jumpers-bump". As you said, she could use alot of muscling, expecially along her topline..
Very pretty paint though. It looks like she dunked her face in milk!

Video time.... kinda guessing her previous trainer might have been into reining... thoughts?

Again, I must say she's gorgeous! Lucky! Lol
As for the video, she seems to be slobbering alot, which is probably due to nervousness. Could very well be one of those horses who does what they're asked no matter how nervous they are lol which is good.
I love the way she steps out & has a nice long walk ;)
It looks like her trainer may have been into reining lol. Good, fast back up & starting the spin (she might just be very responsive, though). Good, i'd say for being so young with only 60 days.
What type of bit is she in? Quite often she seems to toss her head & lean into the bit.

She is sooo gorgeous!!! I LOVE her face! People have already said what I thought of... She looks really good to me. :)

The slobbering is due to clover in the field. My stallion is doing it as well. She is in a plain snaffle and has been previously ridden in a twisted.

Slight ewe neck, hunter's bump, and she looks quite dowhill for a five year old. Sure is pretty, though. Gorgeous face.
