I'm in the same boat as the others.. We can't give a very accurate critique without better pictures.. I also agree with Beau that it would be helpful if you would add her to allbreedpedigree.com.

I am Sparkly Meanie Doodie Head and I approve this message!

In the first picture it looks to me like her is pulling on her head(and I see she is giving to the pressure, so that is reassuring) and she is backing up a step? Maybe that's why her rear looks so funny. I'm sure if I call they will know I'm a serious inquiry, and would be more willing to take and send more photos. And no she isn't too far. About 3 hours, which isn't bad really. Thanks for the opinions!

Would it help if I posted a link to her ad? That way you all can click on her pedigree and view it? Okay, here it is:)

Overall, I'm not super impressed with her pedigree. Any names worth mentioning are pretty FAR back in her lineage. (Sonny Dee Bar, Jet Deck, Moon Deck, Poco Bueno)

And I guess it doesn't look like to me that she is "giving" in the first photo. Her nose is stiff and outward. If she was giving, she'd be soft and her nose would be tipped down/in to follow the pressure. Not necessarily a bad thing, as she's only 2 and needs to be taught, but I don't think she's giving.

Depends what you want. If you have high hopes of a 1D barrel horse or rodeo horse, I wouldn't pick her. If you just want something for smaller local events to have fun on, then go for it. Depends what your goals are for her.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

She's cute but there's nothing special about her breeding, you can find better even for that price on 2 year olds.
