Critique Maddy- 6 yr old OTTB

So I would love you guys to critique Maddy...

6 yr old
16 hands

The ground she is on isn't perfectly even but I had to tie her somewhere otherwise she would have followed me around.

I am sorry she isn't perfectly squared up.

I know he front feet are long, the farrier comes tomorrow- trust me she is on a strict 6 week shoeing.

I know she is toed out in the hind a little.

I am still trying to muscle her up.

I have had her for 2 years. I am doing hunters with her and will start jumping in the spring after all the rain. I have taken a few dressage lessons with her and those are going well.

I have attached lots of pics... standing ones, cantering and trotting to the left, cantering and trotting to the right and a few cute ones

Let me know what you think.

Anyone? I see that lots of you have looked

I think she is lovely, im not great on critique but I don't see anything wrong other than what you mentioned, she is muscling up well and has the sweetest face, you should be proud of her

^thanks :) I am very blessed to have her and she is so willing ... I got lucky with my first horse that I am training all by myself

SHe looks really good! She's pretty stocky to. I like her alot, super sweet looking. Ugh it looks so warm were your at, I want to come over lol.

Cute. Horses that have one foot forward like maybe be in pain/ uncomfortable (if it happens frequently.) she's very cute. Why does she have hind boots on in one of the photos? I didnt notice them at first.
    10-29-2009, 04:54 PM
^she isn't in pain, just antsy she kept trying to reach the grass around her so once I squared her up- she moved!

She has hind boots on in all the working pictures (i always ride/lounge in them)... she interferes a little (notice that she is toed out) and so they are for protection.

Trying to understand this, if a horse is toes out why would her back legs interfere? Wouldnt it be the opposite?
