Critique Minot Please?

This is Minot, my 4yo Percheron/ Thoroughbred filly. She is about 16.2 hands now, though I need to measure her again since she is finally leveling out. I got her when she was a yearling from a closing PMU farm up in North Dakota.

We are currently working on getting in shape with hillwork, poles, and basic dressage exercises. However, between the crazy weather and being a senior in high school with too many AP classes than I know what to do with, I haven't been able to ride as often as I would like. Once she is fit, I hope to continue doing dressage and train her to jump for hunters.

Anyway, I had the camera out at the barn this afternoon and decided to take some pictures of her. Any comments and critiques that you guys have would be awesome! I might be able to get a riding video this afternoon if I have enough time.

Shes adorable! I love her little kick outs, and that video with the music and everything was cute, she's seems like a great horse!

Thanks! She is a complete goof. It had gotten colder and was windier that day, so she was very hyper. :)

Anyone else?

I think she is lovely.

She has a good overtrack and should do well with what you are planning.

She apeers to be towed out a little. Her neck is thick, eventhough she is part percheron, although I really like how it ties! She is very pretty.

Yes, she is toed out just a tad in the back hooves.

She definitely is a thick girl though. She got really fat over the summer- even with night turnout with a grazing muzzle and a ration balancer for grain. She has lost a ton of weight over the winter. (My farrier was here yesterday and didn't even recognize her, since she had lost so much weight!)

Since the weather and school have temporarily calmed down a bit, I have been able her a lot more often. Hopefully she will continue to lose weight and become more fit. I might even take her to her first horse show at the end of the month to do some green hunter flat classes, depending how much progress we make between now and then.

Thank you guys so much for all of your comments! I really appreciate them!
