Short summary
We analyzed the relationship between visual ratings of equine conformation and the underlying morphological horse shapes. The rater agreement of eight professional classifiers ranged from 0.30 to 0.55 (correlation). We present a methodological approach, where we associate the individual scores with the horse shapes derived from images, So we can test if the ratings correspond with the observed shape variation. In 58 % of the ratings no association between scores and the phenotypes was found.
