Please Critique My horse

I would love any imput on my horses conformation. I know they are not perfect but I would love other peoples opinions! Thanks!





The chestnut is my 23 (21 in the pic) year old arabian gelding.
The bay is my 10 (8 in the pic) year old Appendix QH mare (her front leg looks weird in the picture but it really is straight.)

your gelding looks like he has a bit of sway back. Built downhill

I can't really critique your mare because theres no photos of her standing square.

There both adorable though!

I disagree with Ginger....I wouldn't say sway back....just no topline

They look good, but can't critique the mare cause she's at an angle. She was 21 in that picture?! She sure doesn't look it

No critique from me. You have 2 very gorgeous horses. The chestnut is quite cute, I love the bone on her/him.

Thanks for sharing the pictures ;)

Very cute horses. :) I agree, the chesnut seems downhill.
Wow, for 23 he's in good shape.

Success comes a [bit] at a time.

Khlassi being 'downhill' is probably why he was never taught to collect. He has always been really heavy in the forehand. I started riding him when he was 17 and he had never learned to collect himself.(my mom bought him when he was 6 and broke him to ride with no problem. My sister finished him and did a horrible job. I fixed him best I could.) I tried for a couple of years but their was absolutly no improvement. Now tht he is 23, I believe he has earned his right to be strung out. he never has been interesred in showing or any of the froo froo stuff. He's a trail horse tru and thru. I figured its not a big deal now.

His back probably looks like that because he has never been taught to collect in his life! And I would agree that he may be a tiny bit sway back. But his topline has never been really filled out. Even when he was younger.
Thnaks Everyone!
