Arabian critique
 
7 Attachment(s)
Okay, I tried this before and I didn't really get a 'critique' from anyone, just like, she's cute and stuff. which is fine(who doesn't need an ego boost from time to time?), but I was thinking of maybe doing some local halter with her next fall and I'd like to get an idea of where I stand with her confo. So, please tell me what you think of her. I don't have many of her standing square, but a few are close. Let me know what you think. Thanks! (I tried to find a pic of her legs, but only found that odd angle one...)

GRRR! Anyone know how to get rid of that annoying ad that covers half the freaking post up top???

nice looking mare ! I would say for show , she will need more muscle tone especially on her rump & shoulder/chest. she has a lovely shoulder , a nice neck but could be improved . Her croup could be a little flatter ( but we cant change that)... but i much rather see one like hers than one that looks deformed & of course would start ruging her with tail bag to try to get that tail to grow... you can get a supplement for it & her color would come up better on black as night supplement .

All in all though you have a nice looking mare and should do well.

Whats her breeding? how tall is she ?

Thanks, that was very helpfull! She does need more toning, and I fully plan on working on that, but she was a brood mare for the last three years so she has not been seriously ridden for at least that long. Once her colt is off of her in a couple months I hope to be far enough back into her training that I can get her on the trail. She is approx. 14.2-14.3, I didn't measure her, but she is with a 14.1 pony and she is a bit bigger than him so... Here is her pedigree, I don't know all that much about reading pedigrees, but I am told she is polish and egyptian. Let me know more about her breeding if you have the time, I'm always interested in learning!

I've looked through that site and actually found quite a few of horses from further back on her pedigree on there. That's kind of cool. I've already been told that there's nothing spectacular up close in her pedigree though, but a little further back is quite interest.....Thanks again for the site, very interesting.

The only critique i can give is that her toes look rather long, though she might just be overdue for a good trim in the pics, it would def be of benefit to get them trimmed up good if not, it will also give her a more graceful walk when you show her.... Other than that i think you stand a good chance at the shows with a bit of toning and a ood polishing! Good Luck!

Yeah those photos are from a couple of weeks ago, she got trimmed up a week and a half ago. :)
