What do you think of my mare?

So just wondering what you think of my 13.2 POA mares looks and such...I am not too good at judging confo and such but I think she has pretty good conformation. I plan on videoing her gaits for y'all to see ;)

The ones of me riding her are at a 4H show a few years back....we have since improved. I was determined to get all blue next time, but in that show I got 2 Red and 2 Blue :) I was pretty stinking happy! I know I had piano hands back then! I haven't had that problem since! lol

Alright rip to shreds!

Well, I , for one, think she is pretty darn gorgeous! She is appy and shetland? I forget the mix for POA.
Great hind end, legs, hocks, pasturns and such. Front legs seem the tiniest bit lightweight for her size, but maybe that's just that she is a bit overweight.
Her back is long in relation to her neck, which is , for me, her only real fault. It is a bit short and a bit thick and set on a tiny bit low. Her shoulders are very mutton withered which might make it hard to fit her to a saddle.

Really, she is nicely put together and really, really appealing!

I know nothin about conformation but I can say she's very pleasing to the eye and looks like an eager, happy mount. The two of you look very nice together and like you are enjoying yourselves, which is most important to me!!

You know, as I look again, her back, relative to the length of her legs is NOT long. only her neck is a tiny bit short. She is really a miniature brick house!

Just wanted to pop in and say that she looks like an altogether cute, all-around pony! I like her a lot and want to steal her from you.

Glory is a very happy horse but she is one of those horses that picks their 1 person to please. I am that person apparently, they were selling her years ago and she was grumpy with everyone but me so she is amazing! POA's started by crossing a arabian/appaloosa mare and a shetland. But over the years the breed has been bettered by other breeds such as welsh ponies, mustangs, indian ponies, more arab was brought in, along with Quarter horses, and appaloosa, the shetland was taken out of the breed.

I think she's gorgeous little tank.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.
