Critique her please!! Before and after!

This is Donna. Some of you have read about her before but if not..... She is an 8 year old Morgan/QH cross. 14.2hh I have had her for 6 months now and she has come a LONG way. When she was younger she was just rode by a young boy and they just took her out in the field and ran and then he stopped going to see her so they decided to sell her. She had not been rode for a little more than a year when I got her. I am now showing her in jumping shows and she LOVES it.

These pictures were taken the day I got her in November.

This is what she looked like on April 4, 2009. Sorry the pictures are kind of crappy. They were taken from my cell phone. I also was not able to get a picture of the back of her hind legs. Everytime I went behind her to take a picture she would move her butt away. O well.

She's looking much much better.

Just a suggestion - you might want to use bit keepers on your full cheek

actually, I put bit keepers on it before and so it tilted the bit differently and she FREAKED out. She didn't like it at all. But thanks!

What are bit keepers?

Every ride, good or bad, teaches you something new.

She actually probably be a good barrel racer but I NEVER ride western or anything. I only ever do that stuff at fun shows and even then I do it in an english saddle. I haven't tried it with her yet. I'm trying to keep her calm and slow and collected so speed isn't a good thing right now. Haha

She looks waay better! :)
Although she's still missing some muscles, especially in the neck..! But that will come with training ;)

Yes it will! I am working on keeping her head down, and getting her to round up and everything and that will all help with the neck muscles. When it is nice out I also make her walk up and down hills for a little while to build up her back and leg muscles. It all just takes time. =)
Thanks everyone!
