My Spotted Saddle Filly

This is my Spotted Saddle horse filly I was given to show this year. My trainer picks a few out every year for me to show. She is only 10 months in these pics! Keep in mind also that she is a proven halter horse and is suppose to park out unlike the Quarter horses. The breed also has longer heads.

After a few people post, I will tell what she won at the Spotted Saddle Horse World Championships

I don't have much experience with this breed so can't comment, but she's very cute.

The second picture looks like she is buck kneed. Her legs are too close together in the hind and in the front. Downhill. The chest is not correctly forumed to the rear. Neck ties in good at the top but not at the bottom. Elbow doesn't line up with the withers. Even tho the horse is parked out, you can tell its back legs are out in the country. Which is where the hocks don't line up with the butt correctly, they stick out behind the rump more. Back is rather flat, and the neck is set a tad high for the breed. Very nice head, hamms are very well set. Stifle is good and strong looking. Barrel curves up which is charateristic of the breed. Hocks look a tad weak, but that might be the age, working off the hind and over ground poles will help strengthen them. her neck curves out like an ewe neck, just hardly tho, i wouldn't even be able to notice is she wasn't parked out. Which in Saddlebred, is acutally common.

Just for the information, when you park out a Spotted Saddle horse the front and back legs are suppose to be very close together and the neck is suppose to be erect. This is not how she looks in the field, but these characteristics are ideal for the halter show ring.

ooooh she's pretty

the only thing I see is that her neck is pretty skinny...but that could be a characteristic of the SSH

She's rather on the chunky side. She seems to have a smidge of a goose rump, but I would assume its how she's standing.

Acutally, not really. Somewhat your right. But you want the horses legs close together but not that close. Put the legs just a smudgein farther away and it would be perfect.

I think he legs are fine. Although the front might be a little too forward. Otherwise, I don't see much wrong at all. I can't see how she is downhill. I see no gooserump either. Sorry buddies lol maybe its just me.
