    I'm not using the picture for anything... I'm trying to decide how I should set her up for halter : )

    Square her up...I would try bringing her hind legs a bit further under her as well, rather than up to/slightly behind her dock...that will take some of that 'odd' visual you are seeing.

    The second one. The first one looks really bad.

    I definitely like her squared up, looks more pleasing and natural to the western eye lol!

    I like her both ways and think she would do well in the show either way. I do think that squaring her up makes her look very much like a stock horse, whereas parking her out makes her look like her true breed. I guess it just depends on what you like. I show a National Show Horse so I know all about the parking out and such, the mare I show parks out to the point of a rocking horse.

    Oh another question that will determine how you should stand her up...

    Are they using APHA rules for halter class? If so I believe that you have to have her squared up then.

    If your not using a stock horse halter then I wouldnt square her up. That would look odd to me.
