I can't tell half a thing about her conformation from these photos. However, I envy those ribbons. I want some! Y'all did great in that show appearently.

The photos I can't tell too much in, but anyway good job. I can spot a champion in there too. Woo that's awsome! What I can kind of tell is she has a goose bum, a thin neck and sunken chest. Ill need proper confo shots to see the true faults.

Here is a link that should explain :)

Need better pictures.

From those her shoulder looks vertical and her legs are very fine boned. But it might just be the photos. Please post conformation shots.

She's cute but I can't see her conformation here at all. Also, I'm curious as to why you are all wearing jods without any tall boots or half chaps. Where are you from?

Jodhpurs are typically worn with out tall boots or half chaps. Jodhpurs are worn with paddock boots and many people add garter straps just below the knee to finish the look.

Tall boots (or half chaps) are worn with breeches.

Right, right. That is actually what I meant... but I just am thinking that she and especially some of the people in the background are too old for jods.

She is in Australia so they might have different theories than in the US.

She is also riding a pony and many people feel that as long as you are riding a pony that you do not need to wear tall boots. (I do not agree with this totally, I know adults who feel this way and that just does not seem right to me.)

In Aus, you usually were tall boots and breeches when showing Hacks even then its for 17+ the same usually goes with wearing a stock. :) its all fashion. Usually with jodhpurs you were joddy straps that hook under the boots and clip onto the side of the joddies, just so they don't ride up.
