I think she would fit right in 4-H with my group. All of our horses [asides from a couple, who don't always place high] are horses that aren't that grand to the eye, but just demand attention with their performances and behavior. The horses around here are cheap ones that we have made good, not really super expensive ones that somebody else did.
I say show your horse and be proud! It's quite the beauty, in my honest opinion.

Pictures

More Pictures....I just got these today! She is 6 years old. Do you think she needs more hip muscle? Her hip bones stick out so much.

I don't think her neck is too thick. It sits high so she'd be better in hunt then pleasure or maybe speed type stuff but she's a doll.

The "bad" (such that it is)
-Turned out in the rear. This is EXTREMELY common in horses. There is even some thought that it is necessary for a horse to move correctly.
-Long back. Her body makes more of a rectangle than a square. Also, doesn't really split into even thirds from point of shoulder to the backend.
-Not much for withers.
-Maybe a little base wide in the front, but I'm thinking it's the way she's standing. Same way her hinds look a little sickle hocked in some pics... however, in others she has a nice straight line, so she isn't actually sickle hocked.

The "good" or "it could be good or bad depending on what you want to do with her" (say that really really fast)
-Good depth of chest.
-Good bone.
-Nice shoulder.
-Appears to have a good angle between the humerous and scapula.
-High neck set.

The "I'm going to come steal your horse"
-Absolutely love her color, stunning!
-Lively and kind expression on her face, she looks like she's a real pleasure to be around.

Have fun with her, look forward to more pics! Good job on your second lot of pics too, it's pretty hard to get a horse set up right.


Paige4ponies - This is a critique, I may not have everything right as a lot of confo is subjective. However, I go over bad, good, and middle ground stuff. Try to find at least one good trait (and this horse has plenty of very nice things about her). If you incapabable of being polite about it, then don't to critique. Nobody needs to hear rude comments about their animal.

Good job Tigerstripes. Enough said concerning Paige4ponies - let's get back on topic.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

So other have said the critique but I just wanted to add that she looks to be in better shape in the second set of pics then the first pic you posted. Her hip/but does look a little lean but maybe giving her a little more feed will help... it looks like you are riding her now so that feed will turn into muscle

And you can send her to me if you want her to have a vaca in CA haha

I don't think her back is that long, she looks to have a fairly straight shoulder and upright pasterns which would give her a jarring trot ...

She is a lovely colour, with unusual (to me anyways!) markings.

"Did I not just use the word 'puzzling'?"

Yeah the first picture was the first day I got her. (1 yr ago) I didn't think there would be a difference sorry.
