Could she do ok at local shows?

I was wanting to show her at a local "fun" show in halter classes and I was wondering how people think she might do. I know for a fact she needs more muscle, but is there anything that looks horrid on her?

*This is NOT level ground

I know I need better pics and I'll try to get them tomorrow. I made the mistake at going out there at feeding time :rolleye0014: and thats all they wanted. And its been raining the whole week, thats why shes so dirty.

I know there in bits and pieces my camera batteries died on me.

From a while ago.

I like her color and most everything about her.

I don't think he topline and bottom line look all that good together and her head is very pretty.

I'm sure she will do good in local shows though. She puts the horses to shame that show in our local halter shows!

Great thanks! None of the pics in her stall were at the right angle but I'll try to get some good ones of her squared up this afternoon.

What can I do to improve her top and bottom line? I might not be able to bring her till next season. My dads tearin a trailer we just bought apart and is redoing it. He said it might be a few months with what he's got planed .

Okay I take it back, I took a better, not so rushed looked and her lines look alright together. In the last picture you can really see it. So the only thing I don't like is her head. But that is not everything. I do adore that color!

She's a cutie. I would try to get her some more exercise to build her hindquarters and slim her down through the barrel. Lots of backing and uneven terrain. I don't know what you are feeding her or how serious you are about succeeding at halter, but a good quality hay makes a huge difference as well. Our horses were raised on poor quality grass hay (whatever my Dad harvested out of the pasture), but since we've moved and alfalfa is "affordable" here, they get alfalfa. Huge difference. Gives them a more sucked up athletic appearance. You could also try sweating her neck and getting a better fitting halter to show her in. Not a must but will hide flaws - and doesn't have to be super fancy. Good Luck!
