Please Critique Shelby

Hi All,

Wanted to get an honest opinion on this Pinto Filly. Mum was a Thoroughred and dad was a paint.

Both very well bred rode her mum on track some years ago (when i was light enough :) who had a super quiet and trainable temperament even when race fit and Dad was a reiner who i have been told was very successfull and a pleasure to handle.

Im looking at buying her for reining purposes as well as general trail work and what not.

Confo and Reining suitability comments greatly appreciated..


she is 15 months here

I'm not great at confo-ing, but she looks to have a straight shoulder and skinny neck....
maybe some more people will help. I'm noticing some more things, but I will wait to see what other people say before posting those......

I don't see anything that really jumps out at me good or bad but the pictures aren't really conducive to good conformational review. I think the shoulder might look straigher because her head is so high but not 100% on that. Would like a side view with her head level to be sure. And I don't do reining so I won't touch suitability but I had to comment on all that white! I'm lazy...all my horses are a solid color with minimal "chrome" I hate cleaning up whites for shows! Haha she is cute though =)

All I can see is that all but her front right hoof is turned out. She is VERY pretty!
