Hey, this is the first thread I've started, so bear with me. I have an OTTB mare (named Kate) who's 8 years old and currently the mom of my next project. But, when her baby is weaned in January, I'd like to retrain her to be... something. The problem is, I don't really know what, other than racing, her conformation lends itself too. Usually I'm pretty good at repurposing horses, but she's just such a typical racehorse that I'm kind of at a loss. That said, I'd really like outside opinions as to what she'd be good at. You're welcome to critique her conformation as best you can from the pictures (which probably aren't the best ever). I won't be insulted, as I know her conformation is far from perfect and she's ridiculously out of shape. Kindness and tact is all I ask. Photo Gallery: Kate 1
Also, FYI, the pictures of her standing make her look spectacularly downhill, but she's actually not. She's the same height on both ends, so to speak.
