This is Holly, a nine year old Quarter Horse mare. She is AQHA registered as Uno Miss Hollywood and she is bred for ranch work/reining. I plan on showing her competitively in ranch riding and reining--do you think her conformation looks good for nice,pretty movement as well as staying sound? In my opinion, she is a little butt high, but that is the only major flaw that I can pick up on(but I am inexperienced at judging conformation) Thanks in advance!
Pretty mare. I'd suspect she could do with a chiro adjustment-- the lack of development along her topline speaks of something not quite right-- either she's not moving properly because of saddle fit, or something sore-- likely over her SI joint. She's a bit goose-rumped which doesn't help, but I bet if you find what's bothering her and let her muscle up, she looks a lot better.
She looks like a nice all-around ranch-type mare for you. Enjoy her!
Thank you all for your answers! Some of these pictures make her hindquarters look a little different than they are in real life and a little more ‘peaky’ than they really look—they were mostly taken with older iPhone cameras which tend to warp the photos a little. She is an amazing horse and I’m glad to hear these good points on her conformation as well as some of her flaws to pay attention to. Open to more opinions also, thanks everyone!
