    I have never thought that a parked out horse was in a very flattering position. It makes their hocks look posty and their loins look weak, even if they aren't. I would definitely square her up but try to get her to stand with her hind feet a little farther under her and a little farther apart if you can. If the judge is not accustomed to judging gaited horses at halter, he will likely see her much the way I did.

    I think I'm just going to square her.

    Hi, what a lovely horse!!!
    I have to say I prefer squared , however I have show ponies which stand square automatically so I am a little biased, but either way it is a very stunning horse!

    If you are going to square her up, keep the western halter on her. If you are going to park her out, put on her gaited halter or bridle. I think what is throwing you off is that the halter stays the same. She looks great in either pose but if you keep the western halter on her, you look like you don't know what you're doing with her. :)

    Oops... Sorry for the huge delay. I was never going to use the western halter. That was just for practice.



    Here are pictures from the show...






    There were only two of us in breeding stock halter... The other competitor being a girl from my barn with a giant Warmblood. I got second, to everybody's surprise... I mean, the Warmblood isn't at all ugly but she does have a big potbelly and wasn't even remotely squared up, haha.
