Critique my warmblood mare! :) please! lots of pics!

Ignore my eq! Hasn't been the greatest lately and that's what we're working on now.

But what do you think of my mare? :) She is 17.1hh and we got her imported from Germany about a year ago, she turns 7 end of May! She's a german warmblood and we are going to be showing in the Junior hunters this season and also doing some eq/medal classes.

And some PICTURES:

Cute - but can't judge confirmation by moving (under saddle) pictures - so what do you want us to evaluate?

I am asuming that since you didn't post any conformation shots that you would just like her evaluated under saddle. She is super cute, but she lacks engagement. You really need to push her up into the bridle and get her stepping underneath herself more. Her jumping style is ok, but she would greatly benifit from grids and bounces to get her jumping rounder and tighten up her legs.

She's lovely! I love hearing riders import their horses instead of getting them locally-such a waste of time locally. Absolutely love her under saddle. She looks very alert and willing to work with her rider.

I think your equitation looks lovely, but needs a stronger foundation, and that reflects in your gorgeous mare. You have to push her forward and engage her from behind, and allow her to come into your hand(I also suggest shortening your stirrups). Lift your hand off your lap and and try to prevent that break in your wrist to allow for a better contact with your mare. Push her forward from behind with your seat and lower leg.

Good exercises to increase that engagement is doing a LOT of transition work. Walk, trot-trot walk, canter walk, walk canter. Circles, lateral work.

Working with her now on those especially at her age is really important because you guys are still building her hind end and her topline. You guys look absolutely lovely. She is beautiful.

Wow that's a wild statement.


To the OP, your mare is lovely. I am sure you are going to do great together.

No kidding. I guess I better tell JJ what a waste of time he is, since he's locally bred and -gasp!- a mere TB. :roll:

Glad to know some people have unlimited funds, so they don't have to soil their hands on crappy, domestic bred horses.

OP, can't tell much about her conformation from action shots, but she looks like a lovely mare.

I too was not impressed with statement either. There are many VERY nice locally bred horses of all breeds that do just as well as imported horses.
