Reining...

How is my mare's conformation/build for reining?

And where does she need improvement (muscle-wise)?

She's been doing GREAT so far. We've only been reining for about two months and she's been making HUGE improvements : ]


Thanks so much to everyone who replies.

She's awfull!! Put together all wrong! But I might be able to take her off your hands if you could let her go pretty cheap.

Seriously, I really like her. She looks a little sickle-hocked but that's not a bad thing in a reiner. If she doesn't make a good reiner you can't blame it on her conformation.

There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill

Hey I just didn't want you to have to waste more hay on a horse like that.

Forget trying to buy her, I'm going to sneak to FL and steal her!!!! };) hehehe.

She looks like she would do well. Plus, she'd be really flashy to show with her blue eyes against a dark coat. Stunning!

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Agreed with every single one! LOVELY!
I like a little more muscle through the stifle, but she looks healthy, so I wouldnt worry about it. I really really like her... her confo reminds me a lot of my older gelding. How's she bred?

No way!!! She looks so much like a QH/Paint type.

I really like how she is put together.

Her neck is a little short and ties in a little higher so she may not be one of those super low headed horses (she may, you never know). But that's not really an issue, because it doesn't really matter.

Do you have an videos of her I would love to see them
