Human conformation critiques

Do you guys ever find yourself looking at people and doing conformation critiques on them the way you do horses? lol I noticed I was doing this the other day at Walmart! Haha! And then it just exploded from there! I started critiquing everyone, me, my family, friends... boyfriend Needless to say I keep these thoughts to myself. I wouldn't want anyone to know they are a little butt high (like myself ) lol

Does anyone else find themselves doing bizarre things like this???

Haha! I also picture them as like what breed of horse they would be closest to! Maybe like a Saddlebred??? Their back ends aren't super curvy! And someone like Kim Kardashian or Nicki Minaj is the equivalent of a halter horse or something! lol

I always do it. As a former bodybuilder and fitness trainer, I look at people's bone structure, body type, and condition a lot, visualizing what kind of body and shape they would have with a proper diet and a good training program...

So THAT's what my husband is doing when his head turns when "nice shoes" walks by .... hmmm, who'd have guessed.

I was at a saddle fitting clinic once where the saddle fitter picked three women with different body shapes out of the crowd (embarrassingly, I was one), had us walk across the arena, and then went on to give his best guess about what problems each of us faced when riding. He was exactly right with all of us- like a psychic! He explained his predictions based on the size/shape/tilt of our pelvis (yeah, that made me a little uncomfortable...), the length of our stride, and how our feet landed when we hit the ground. Since our horses were also there, he then went on to tell us how our conformation was limiting our horse's movement. It was a really weird experience, but some people do seem to really understand how body structure affects movement in a way I'm sure I never will.
