Welcome to Club Q
Thank you for joining us on our journey to the 2017 Thoroughbred Makeover.
Evaluating Q's Conformation
Welcome to Club Q! For our first discussion, I thought it was appropriate to begin with an up-close view of Q to evaluate her conformation. In upcoming posts I will also cover her movement and personality, but I think it is always important to begin by fairly and thoroughly assessing a horse's conformation. This helps to identify any areas that might require close attention as training develops or help to explain imbalances that present themselves in the early stages of training.
The following videos and photos are intended to give you a close first-person view of Q's conformation. Share your feedback - likes, concerns, etc - in the comments below, and on Friday I will share my thoughts as an addendum to this post. I wanted to structure it this way so as not to bias anyone's opinions, and remember that conformation can often be subjective so there are NO WRONG ANSWERS :-)
What do you notice about her feet, legs, muscling, skeletal angles, coat condition, or anything else that stands out to you? This initial look will serve as our baseline to determine how Q is progressing and developing throughout her training.
Is there another view or photo you would like to see to help with your assessment? Please feel free to request it in the comments, and I'll do my best to get it for you. Club Q is all about you being able to feel like you are right here with Q for her training, so the more you engage with the conversation, the more you will benefit.

About Club Q
Club Q is setup as a private blog for members only, and in addition to having access to material that I will not share with the general public, one of the biggest benefits is the ability for you to join the discussion and ask questions by using the "Comment" area of each blog post. This is a new endeavor for me, so I'm also always open to feedback.
