Um i think she needs a little more topline- but that's easy with work and just loosen her lower neck muscle.

:) Yes I agree. Can you see anything through her shoulders and down and carefully look at her general health in appearance....not a test but just want to know if people see what I can see? and maybe more?

:) Thats ok!! Thankyou for being honest! I wanted a critique because when she is placed in front of a judge that is exactly what will happen......for the show ring. I think she is not fully developed through the shoulder although her legs are straight and correct she looks narrow and I am hoping with build up of muscle and fitness this will develope more....I hope!

Thankyou everyone who contributed to my post.....even with some of these "things" we think she is pretty lovely too and will offer a sharper challenge for my girl, Riding ponies are alot more responsive in reactions and offer a free moving ride. We hope to head toward show hunter with her but still have a wee way to go with training and fitness..........!
:) We think she is a Beauty too! Thankyou all for your kind words

Yeah i agree riding ponies are the way toi go for the show ring, i was gonna suggest you put her in show hunter- i think she should do quite well in it. Oh and Riding Ponies definately are good for a little more challenge
