Those of you to see my thread with the appaloosa, he is still in the picture. Just looking around to be sure what horse is right for me :) I tried to get the best shots I could, I know the front and behind ones are a little iffy.
Don't critique my riding- I know it's been better.
This is a haflinger cross, 10yo, about 14 h. Have at it!

cute horse. A bit long of the back but otherwise well built. I like Haflingers. They are awesome all around horses.

I agree her back is a tad long and her back legs could be straigher but overall she's got a nice stocky build & a lovely color

Thanks :) and quite obviously her long back does not have a whole lot to carry as far as I go haha. So that shouldn't be an issue. I forgot to mention I just plan to use her for pleasure riding. Playing around at local shows and maybe trying some CTRs.

She's a cute little thing. I agree with her back being a little long, but is it just me or does her neck look a little funny? Or is that a Haflinger charecteristic? (I'm too used to QH conformation to judge other horse breeds :wink::lol:)

SHe looks like a lovely little horse!

Her neck has a huge crest. I presume fat as the barn owner said it went away when she was in better shape and being ridden more.

^That could very well be it. I hope it'll go away with some rigorous exersize. Other than that I think she is adorable

Thanks! Me too. It actually wobbles around as she bounces haha it is quite funny lookin

Haha my Perch/cross has a super cresty neck like that! It was a lot worse when she was fat and jiggled all around whenever she moved :lol:

Haha it's like jello. I hope it gets little better when she is in better shape haha.
