Need eventer conformation pics for a scientific study
Hi guys! My senior undergrad thesis is on conformation and performance in event horses. Eventually I'll be painting dots over skeletal landmarks on horses and photographing them, but for preliminary data collection, all I need are pictures.
If any of you would be willing to send me a conformation shot of your horse (the more square the better, no tack, preferably on level ground, etc) and his/her USEA registered name or number, I'd be grateful. I'm currently only looking at horses with more than 5 events on record. I need horses of all shapes, sizes, levels, and abilities.
Thanks in advance! Feel free to PM me the pics/info or post here.
wsmoak, yes - ultimately this research is aimed at a published paper, which will discuss overall patterns. I'm sure that once I've completed data analysis, I will also be able to share the individual measurements of a given horse (and how those roughly compare to overall trends) if an owner wishes. That's assuming there are significant results from pictures alone...which may or may not turn out to be the case.
Edit: Those are both great confo pictures, especially the first - he's nice and square. Having multiple pics of the same horse is quite helpful.
Look up some confo pics of Winsome Adante. There's one on this forum somewhere I remember. He was obviously a very successful 4 star eventer but IIRC he was post legged behind. He did retire a little early due to soundness issues (again, iirc) so maybe that could be some useful input for your study.
