my tn walker mare!!!!!tell me what you think!!!

this is motowns majorette she is my newest horse.she is a 3 yr old reg. almost 17 hh tn walker mare.she is a beautiful horse that im wanting to show andtrail ride with.she was broke just last winter and i can already get on her bareback and go trail riding.i can do anything with her!she is a good horse and is very fast.i run her hard for up to 2 hrs and she still has energy left to act up.she has an awsome gait and im now using 6 mm chains on her.it picks up her feet 2-3 inches.she is an impressive girl.this is her bloodline she has one world grand champion that is motown magic.and has good horses such as,prides generator 2 times on her bloodline,ebonys hacksaw ,major league,go boy's fury,sprits make me shake,and as beautiful does.she is a perfect horse for me.im also going to breed her sometime for a mule or for a tn walker idk im still deciding. here are some pics please give me your opinions!!!i think she is just beautiful!but some things i could live without would be her jug head and her hips that stick out even though shes in good condition.



my house is in the picture because i just brought her up and started taking pics for this forum before it started to rain.i have a barn i just dont like being in it! : ) because it doesnt have elctricty yet so its always dark.






i think she looks like a quarter horse in her confo because she is massive!!!



just tell me what you think!!!

She's not what I would call massive. She's got a very weak looking neck. When was the last time she had a trim. As a side note, seems like you are working her pretty hard for just a three year old. I would definitely reconsider breeding her.

Tn Walker's take a long time to mature, their necks seem to stay skinny for a long time. Try not to develop bad habbits with her. I wouldn't breed her for a while, like years yet because she probably won't be done growing and maturing till she's 6. I'd love to see her gate. I might be training some this summer. Of course not riding them, the one mare is only 2 and I don't want to be on her back yet.
Good luck with the training. What kind of schedule do you have her on?

Just out of curiosity(sp?) why would you be running a horse 'hard' for 2 hrs? I think that is way to much running for a horse.

these pics dont do her any justice she does have a weak neck but she has a very deep girth and hindquarters.

Whoa, yeah, I totally agree with Solon and Morganshow11.
She's a 3 year old. Her bones, tendons, and muscles have not matured yet, and too much work can hurt her later on in years. It seems as if you are putting too much work on for her. She's just a baby, of course she still has energy at the end.
