Critique on my possible share. *Pic Heavy*
 
This is Tigger. I rode him last week and I really really loved him and I think I want to share him, I know it's not the same as owning but for me it's almost as special.
Wondering if you lot could critique him? He's a stunner!

Thanks x

I can't really tell from those pictures (and me+conformation examaning=bad lol), but you seem a little tall for him?

It could be just me though ... But he's darn cute :-)

Edit - his back legs also seem a little straight. But honestly I'm so bad at judging conformation and such so I'm probably so wrong lol.

These are not all that great confo shots, but I'll give you my best.

His neck is thick and tied in low, creating the illusion of a too-big head/neck. He is also butt-high. Maybe straight in the rear two, hard to tell from the pics. I'd also say he is weak in his pasterns.

Having said that, I don't think It's a big deal, he is a major-cutie and you all are cute together :D

Your horse is fricken gorgeous!!!!!!!

I think he is adorable! But, Im a sucker for ponies...

I think he's just adorable, but I am also a sucker for ponies. =P Do you know what breed he is? A major thing I noticed with your riding: remember to keep your heels down/toes up. Once you get that down it will probably be much easier for you to sit up straighter because you'll be balanced better. =D

shorten your sturrups please, you are sitting quite far back, keep your eyes up and you are getting a little tall for him ... cute tho! :)

The only thing I can say from these photos (not great confo shots) is that you seem just a little tall for him, but maybe it's just because your stirrups are too long? I'm not sure. He's a cutie, that's for sure.

However, if you feel comfortable and confident riding him, who cares if you're a bit tall for him? :]

Best of luck.
