    This is a re-edit of an old photo. Really just looking for any feedback.

    I like the image, but it could stand to go about 1/2 - 1 stop darker.

    I agree, the light in this is a little blinding the first time you look at it which prevents you from seeing the photo clearly. Unless this is from a RAW I would say your best bet is to select everything that is in the bright light and avoid selecting the side of the horse facing the camera that is in shadow and then alter the rest of the shot to look darker - that way you won't start losing details present in th darker side of the horse
    edit - something like this:

    though you have to be careful with the blaze on the nose - the lower part has a shadow and so you have to have this section deselected otherwise the shadow stands out too much. I also shifted and selected the inverse (the shadowed side of the horse) and in a new layer edited the brightness to be a little more to show up the details - then I boosted saturation a little over the whole shot as it seems to be losing some light when posting online - in the photoshop it looked fine
