What level could she progress to?

I want honest opinions here, they are not going to hurt my feelings. Under new dressage instructor... some shots and riding video of my qh after 3 months of dressage lessons (actually even less since they are not every week). What could be the highest level she could progress (which of course will take time and lots of training) based on her confo/movement?

I know she has flows: downhill, long body, short legs and neck, and on lazy side. And both of us are beginners too.

Any horse can do dressage. I can't stress this enough. However. Competitively, you will be lucky if you do first level on this horse.
My first dressage horse was a QH. He maxed out in the show ring at first level, but was schooling all his lateral work and changes at home.

Good luck!

Thanks, Anebel! My trainer said she thinks she can get to the 2nd level (which I'm not positive about given her confo that's why I asked, BUT I also not sure may be she was talking about "Training" (?), I have to ask her when she'll be back from the trip). I guess will see.

Just remember to take each day as it comes. Dressage should never have an end goal. We should only form reasonable expectations in order to limit our disappointment when and if our horse doesn't perform as we had originally hoped. Just because someone thinks the horse can or can't do something, doesn't mean 5 years down the road it will or won't. The only thing that is for sure is what the horse is doing here and now.
Good luck!

Lol! You are right. It's always something to work on and improve (doesn't matter what level you are at).
