We are starting with four horses (aged geldings) which are fairly similar to make it easier to see their differences. Not only are these guys all the light or Southwestern type, but they are also fairly closely related. Let's critique and place these horses. Remember, there is much more that we can't do here--like watch length of stride and way-of-going. Here we can't even see width of chest, view from the rear, etc. Those things could make a very large difference if we were judging these guys in an arena for real. We are going to start with similar horses so we can get basics down. Also remember that pictures (esp. only 1 of each horse) can be deceptive. If we were placing these geldings in life, we might see their proportions differently and place them differently. But for our purposes here, we are just going to start with these profile views. Place them according to angles, balance, etc. from what is visible. Don't hesitate to look at our online halter criteria to be sure you are looking for CS type. Don't guess; don't use anything you can't actually see. Email: Vickie Ives with your placings. She will discuss the class and give you the placings. Your discussion is welcome, too!
