Experimenting with how this comes out:

We drew skeletons on our palpation horses with chalk when I was in first year anatomy class.

That last one, along with one with muscles (same horse) used to be on a website.

Ya, I just threw it up for reference for you. I doubted the drawer's placement of some bones sometimes (in the class) so I threw that up in case you wanted to try to guess for yourself where the bone placement is. Because while exercise can help cover up some bad conformation? It's still bad or good if you can find the points you need to find.

If you start with one thing at a time, the three together will help you see. For example, compare the shoulders of the three. Look at how much more upright #1's shoulder is..... We can all start pointing these things out and then perhaps Heidi could help or we can try Heidi's method of top left down to organize a complete critique?

We went to a clinic where the anatomy in motion gals where doing a demo, it was VERY interesting! Not only was the horse painted but the rider had on a bones suit too.
