Does my horse have muscle??

Help yourself first to a delectable slice of Oreo cheesecake. :P

Please assess Jubilee's muscling by looking at these pictures. Where does she have it? Where does she need it?


MOST RECENT PIC. She just had a bath, so she's wet. But here she is ...


(slight incline)

RIDING PICTURE. I know my saddle is way far up:


Is there any improvement when comparing it to the other pictures?

Thank you VERY much guys!!

Based on your second pic (which has better lighting), you've made big strides since you got her. Very nice.

I think I see some muscle definition in her shoulder and neck..
But I don't yet have the eye for horse conformation

I agree. I'm not a pro, but I can see more muscling on her neck and shoulder. She has definitely improved.

She definitely has nice muscling! In the shoulder you can really tell.

She has nice muscle in her shoulder and her neck keep in mind she doesnt have much on her rump.

You have definitely come along way since you got her !

Ally - Yes I know she definitely needs more butt muscle. I'm working on it. :P

Anyone else? Please?

I am not a pro at this but I do see alot more deffinition in the shoulder and do see more in the back end (from when you got her). I am used to looking at quarter horses and their back ends are quite different than thoroughbreds haha. But to me it does look like there is more deffinition.
