  1. Horse Riding Critique
    Hello! Long time reader, first time forum post! I recently got a few videos of my riding and I need some constructive advice. Horse is 16 year old, 16.2h Oldenburg/appy. He gets body work done but I know he has more trouble bending left than right. Tracking right I have to think of counter...
  2. Horse Conformation Critique
    Hey guys :) So my boy Jack is close to being 3 years old. So I was wondering what you guys think of his conformation. I did post him to an actual FB conformation group but have been getting 0 responses so I figured I'd try here. I can see a few things myself, but I'd love to hear more...
  3. Horse Conformation Critique
    I would love opinions on this horse's conformation, I'm looking to take on another horse and I am considering going to take a look at her unless you guys point out anything obvious, or things I should watch out for as I get a bit blind when I see a horse that I really like. She's an 11 year old...

    https://flic.kr/s/aHskwRhMQ3 Hey all! I am theorizing about a mare that I have had for a year because I noticed some recent changes in her conformation. Feel free to either tell me I'm crazy or add some input. I have been free leasing this grade paint pony for a year now and she just turned...

  6. Horse Riding Critique
    I wish I could upload a video but the website is having some technical difficulties (very infuriating since it gets to like 99% and says "software error"), but yeah I've been riding for a little over a year now and am having some issues with my two point. My problem is that I "push with my...

    For the love of baby jesus, someone please help me fix my terrible posture. But also please read this first. For as long as I can remember, I've always ridden somewhat chair seated. It tended to vary depending on what horse I was riding and what saddle I was using - sometimes my chairseat was...
  8. Horse Conformation Critique
    Hi everyone, I really want to learn how to critique a horses confo, what are vital 'must haves/not haves', what flaws are more 'okay' than others. I've been reading and following a lot of you to try pick up a few things, but there is obviously a lot to learn. I wanted to start, with just a...
  9. Horse Conformation Critique
    So I got my horse a little while ago and have had her in the stables where a few people have commented about her. They say she looks good and well put together. But I was just wondering if I could get a bit more of an 'in depth' critique of her. I'm new to owning a horse and noticing different...

  11. Horse Conformation Critique
    Critique my Warmblood, if there are areas that could improve I would love suggestions on how to improve them. I have owned him for three years but he has been out of work recently. I would appreciate any and everything that you might notice! Some info on him.. He is about 17.2 hands, 9 years...
  12. Horse Conformation Critique
    I'd love to hear what you guys think of my two babies. :) Please keep it kind, as they're my loves regardless of some flaws!

  13. English Riding
    I know this is going to seem like a really broad question, but I've been skimming through the threads in the Horse Riding Critique forum and I've found myself wanting to provide input, but not knowing where to start. What are some of the first things you're looking for when you're watching a...
  14. Horse Conformation Critique
    I'm half considering this mare as a relatively fast turn around project, she's supposed to be hanoXtb, 15.3, and six years old. If she is a warmblood cross the price is amazing, but I'm thinking she looks more like an appendix QH, personally. Overall I like her look, minus a few things. But her...
  15. Horse Riding Critique
    I only have one clear picture at the moment, sorry! I recently started working on jumping again with Nav, it's been a while since we've done very much. We're using a placing pole in front to help him figure out where to take off - do they eventually learn how to do it without? It seems like...
  16. Horse Conformation Critique
    Bought this guy a few months ago after retirement, he spelled for 9 months before I purchased him. Retraining him with the help of my aunt that breeds and competes Warmbloods, but mostly he's a trail mount. Has a very nice temperament. :gallop:
  17. Horse Riding Critique
    This is in response to a thread I had asking about how to improve transitions. I thought posting a video of Navigator and I, and getting some feedback would be helpful for us. This is just a short video of us doing walk-trot-canter-trot-walk, both directions. Would love some critiques...
  18. Horse Riding Critique
    Hello everyone :-) If you wouldn't mind, could you critique this photo of myself and my previous mount? It was taken during a Hack division at a past show although I cannot remember which class. Critique equitation, horse and turnout! Thank you! (Click photo to enlarge)
  19. Hoof Care
    Hello! I've been trimming Nav's hooves for about a year now, after a couple of years experience under a mentor. It's been a while since I've had anyone out to watch me work so I thought it would be beneficial to get some other and more experienced opinions. I feel like I haven't been doing...
  20. Hoof Care
    Critique away on these hooves. Do they look good, bad, any improvements you may think? They are about 4-5 weeks since the last trimming. I don't know much on the shape, structure, etc. on hooves and enjoy hearing what others have to say.
