This is an interesting group of mares that will test your observational skills this month. Remember, it doesn’t matter if you place the horses exactly the same as I do. What’s important is that you see, or begin to see the same things. I always strive to pick the most complete package, depending on what the particular class requires.
In this series, we invite readers to submit a photo of their horse to be included in a recurring conformation evaluation.
Noted International Arabian judge Cindy Reich will place each class and explain her thought process. The horses are not identified, but ranked in order from 1-4. Test your judging skills and see if you saw the same things.
The photographs do not have to be professional, but must be a high quality profile picture where the horse fills the whole frame. All feet and legs must be visible. It is preferable that the horse is standing relatively square. Anyone can submit a photo for this feature. Any age from yearlings to aged horses are accepted. Horses do not need to be clipped. Simply include the photo along with age and sex of the horse, and email to: email@example.com.
