if I didn't know her breed I would still say TB.
She looks pretty good, her bum looks small though, may just be lack of muscle.
She would probably excel in any choosen disiplene, but you wouldn't want to rush her into comps as shes only 5

She def looks Thoroughbred. I would say the same height as my mare,16.1. I don't know much about conformation, but I think she looks good. She's very eye catching to me.(I loove bays). She looks like she can jump no problem. Good luck and have fun if you decide to buy her!

I'm not really that wild about her, to be honest. I think she looks quite average. Her neck is shorter than I would like to see and there's something about her hind end that really turns me off. I also think she's a bit thick through the throatlatch area, which will make it hard for her to flex. She's also a bit long in the pastern, which if stressed could lead to some soft tissue injuries.

Just going to throw this out there. She is beautiful and I would definatly say TB if I didnt know. But I wouldn't spend that kind of money on a OTTB That hasnt done anything or had any real training. If your really looking for a TB look at the TB rescues near you. I got my TB for $700.
I'm just saying you could probably find a horse for cheaper. Train it and it be worth a little more. These days that kind of money for a OTTB is a little ridiculous.

Dont let me discourage you she is beautiful I was just pointing that out. :)

She looks TB and about 16hh. She'd do fine as an eventer and could probably jump pretty well. She has a nice, sloped shoulder and a nice back. Overall, she looks pretty balanced. I don't like her neck though. It's a little short and not set very well. She's also thick at the throat latch. She wouldn't be able to get elevation of her neck for high level dressage. Her front legs look pretty good but her pasterns are a little long. Her back legs seem post legged but it's hard to tell because the pictures aren't great. Her back canon bones are too long and her pasterns are steep. She has a very pretty face and a nice coat.
