Critique on QH Mare.
 
Hey everyone my friend wants everyone to critique her girl. She is a 12 year old Quarter Horse.

Hi there, she seems nicely built - couple things that stand out to me:
1) front hooves.. long toe, low heels.. that can be fixed with correct trimming
2) she appears to have a very short back combined with high wither - he may be a challenge to fit a saddle..
3) I wish her throat latch area was a little cleaner.. her neck overall seems kind of thick, I'd like to see a little more refinement
4) Her legs seem to be on the thin side for the size of her body

Overall - nothing bad that I can see.. What is her pedigree do you know?

No Pedigree.
She was told she was able to get registered at some point. But she shuffled through a few owners and paperwork got lost. They found the first owner once but the number had been disconnected. So who knows! But she is a sweet horse. =]

Also: Yes she was difficult to find a saddle they had to have one made.

What is your friend planning to do with her?

ApolloRider 07-11-2013 10:16 PM

She does some jumping and trail riding. She just enjoys doing anything with her. It's her first horse. :)

I think she wants to jump someday as that what she does the most.

MyBrandy 07-11-2013 10:19 PM

If that is your friend's first horse then the temperament of the horse should be the #1 on the list.. Does your friend have any prior experience with horses? I am assuming she took lessons or leased a horse before if she is looking to purchase one right? :)

ApolloRider 07-11-2013 10:21 PM

Oh she knows.
Its her first horse but she has had her for 4 or 5 years.
The horse is willing to go anywhere for her. They are a lovely pair. =]

Perfect scenario - she knows the mare well then :) I am very happy for her!

I didn't know that QHs can be pinto. She seems odd to me. Not like I'm used to seeing horses in the breed.

Well no - QH's cannot be pinto.. however she could be a Paint (APHA) if she was registered with APHA (colored QH), if she is not registered with APHA then she is just "pinto" which is no breed but color registry..
