    Maybe next time the farrier is out I think I will just have him swap out her steel shoes for aluminum and see if it makes a difference at all...I can keep the steel for the next time if I don't see one.

    Yeah, it looks a lot like her overall conformation is just not a HUS horse. In fact, she'd actually be really cute as a western pleasure horse ;)

    Oh vair oh, just checking, and I apologize if you already know this, but HITS is showing in the USEF hunters, not QH, Paint or other breed show hunters.

    They are very different.

    And yeah she probably would be cute Western but I have always been an English rider and want to stick to that and Sandie was trained with dressage. I only ventured into the hunter world because dressage was starting to stress sandie out it's hard for her to get into a dressage frame and hold it for more than a stride or two.

    I always did think she made a cute dressage horse and she was always top of her class but she started getting into this habit of repeatedly chomping the bit nervously and that's gone away since I switched to hunters. Here's one of her dressage tests, not our best one but got us second that day I think...

    USEF or AQHA, she moves like an AQHA, not like a thoroughbred. I don't see how it matters, a well engaged horse moving out at the trot is desirable by all associations.

    The kind of movement that gets pinned in AQHA and USEF is differnet, and the headset/frame is very different. I've also adored HITS's horse, but to me she always has looked more like the AQHA type. However, she's showing in USEF based hunters, and she's not as appropriate a type for those classes and maybe even experiencing some breed or type discriminatioin.

    And this is a USEF hunter under saddle should look like -
