    Critique Me and My Horse

    I haven't done one of these in a while and got some pretty good pics from my ride tonight. I figured it was time to get hammered, lol!!

    First off is just Brickens. It looks like he's lost like all his topline?? I don't know how that happened? But if you have advice on how to gain it back that would be lovely.

    Now for riding pics! Bear in mind Brickens is just getting the concept of "on the bit" at the trot and I will soon be working on it at the canter. Also, his trot is not very pretty to look at.

    Now for no stirrups...

    And last but not least a bareback pic!

    He is very handsome! It doesn't look to me like he lost his top line but maybe this is something someone more familiar with this horse would notice. He has a nice short back. His over all weight, condition and coat look great, however more weight and muscle tone will build a up topline if that's what you'd like to see. Changes in his diet, maybe some "up-hill and down-hill" work outs to help build a topline. You two look nice together under saddle, He looks happy and willing.

    He is very pretty. A little uphill maybe? I love that he keeps his mouth closed even with contact on the bit. :) Seems like a real sweetie.

    He has a, er, *cough* very nice bum, for a tb, my boy is all hollow in the flanks, not from being underweight, but coz he has no muscle.
    The rest of your boy is very handsome too, lol! What do you do with him?

    No time to critique (or read below posts)

    But PLEASE put keepers on!

    Thanks everyone!

    I compete in hunter/jumper with him and also take dressage lessons once a week which is very helpful for both of us. As for the topline there is no way for me to work on uphill and downhill work in the winter because the only hill on the property is covered in ice, so I'll have to wait until summer.

    Fedex, thanks mine broke just few weeks ago and I haven't had time to get new one yet and I probably won't because I'm getting a new bit for him for Christmas that is a D-ring french link snaffle, so I won't need those for too much longer anyways.

    Anybody else?? I'm willing to take all the advice I can get.

    Awe Brickens!! *stealsthankyouverymuch*

    He's over at the knee and very uphill. Nice short back, steep croup. How did you find a saddle that fits that shark-fin of a wither?!

    That's all I have the motivation to critique, but I love your pictures!!
    I'll come back here when I'm more in the mood to do so :)

    Thanks JDI!

    Ya, saddle fitting is a real pain but the Pessoa I have right now seems to fit him pretty well. Also, it's pretty painful to ride bareback with his withers. OUCH!!

    I'm looking forward to the rest of your critique.
