critique my mare, update

.





this is my new horse, jazz. she is seven years old and i have had her for about two and a half months now. she had had a really unsettled start to life, and i am hoping to work with her to show that life isnt all go,go,go and scary stuff. she had a rodeoing issue to start with but that is improving now. i hope to showjump with her eventually. she really enjoys jumping but doesnt yet realise that once you have landed, the hard part is over! she approaches and jumps lovely, then takes off! she also has a real issue with any form of restraint. otherwise she is a sweetie, but has been misunderstood and got herself confused and scared.

she's really cute. I love her face. She looks like she might be a tad underweight in the top pic but it might be the way she's standing. Very nice!

OMIGOD. She looks so well behaved. Have you put her in any shows yet. She looks like a little champ to me.

she is a little underweight in the piccie. she was even skinnnier when i first got her, that piccie was about a month ago, and she is looking more covered now. thankyou for saying how well behaved she looks, unfortunately pictures can be decieving i haven't done any shows yet but will keep you updated on her progress.

if anyone else would like to critique my jumping position, please do. i can already say that my back needs to be straighter, but i do not think im behind the movement at all.
maybe i just have a big bum!!!lol

you don't have a big bum.I didn't mean she was under weight a lot or anything but that is really good that you got her weight under control if she was a lot skinnier as you said when you first got her.Good job and she is such a cutie

Hey Muppet, cute horse 8) yea prehaps she's a little underweight but I suspect you are an intelligent lass and given a year of care and work she would be better again and as for your jumping.....yes your back needs to be straighter but you already know that so enough said there.....BUT be proud you are at the high point of the bascule (where your pony is at the moment of suspension above the jump where they are neither up or down..,.just some info for those who don't know)....Which is exactly where you should be! 8)
