Potential new horse (Arab/Oldenburg Cross).

Hey there, I'm new to the forum but from what I've read you all give some great critiques so I figured I'd give it a shot. (: I just tried this horse out Saturday, she's a 6 year old Arab/Oldenburg cross. Forgive her chub, she's been sitting in the pasture and this is the first time anyone's ridden her in a year. She's green and obviously out of shape but very willing. I'm hoping to use her as my new 4-H project and train her to jump/event. I haven't ridden in a few months so feel free to give me a tough critique too!

You both look pretty good to me! I'd bring your leg a little more forward and bend your elbows in the second pic, but overall all looks nice. That's the first time she's been ridden in a year? That's really good! She is a very cute horse too, by the way.

Thank you very much! Yeah, my position is poop in that second picture. I appreciate the tips. (:

Super nice looking mare. You look good, too. Great elbow to bit alignment, back is straight ( a tiny bit stiff looking) . Weight down into stirrup with good connection from upper to lower body ( a litte stiff in to the stirrup , pushing it forward in the first picture).
You guys look like a really nice pair with great potential!

I love her big old blaze!
From these pictures it looks like she is a nicely put together cross.
And as much as conformation can end up counting, her attitude and how you match up together is way more important to me...just my two cents

I agree! You both look pretty good! How did she act when you rode her? Any bucking, bolting etc.?

As for critque... (First pic) Your heels should come back more and your toeing out a little. (Second Pic) Your arms look a little stiff, bend at the elbow and bring your whole hand and arms back some.

Nice looking mare! As for the critique, I think the others have already hit the nail on the head :)

Thank you all very much! She was perfect- no bucking/bolting anything. She's super willing just a little out of shape and pretty green. We definitely had a good connection, I'm going to lease her to start and then we'll see from there! She comes this week though so I'll get more pictures soon! (:

She's so pretty! And willing - what more can you ask for? I ride primarily western so I'm not even going to offer any critique on your riding , but she looks like a sweetheart and hopefully you both learn more about each other through the lease. Seems like a keeper to me!
