Eventing, the right confirmation?

Hey, I was wondering if Sally had the right confirmation to event in lower levels of eventing. We have done lots of dressage and flat work (lots) and I think we are ready to move up and jump, however I am really interested in eventing. Sally is very willing and normally cooperative. We do alot of flatwork and dressage so collection is not an issu. My concern is her confirmation. She is an appendix QH (X-race horse), 16hh. Could we pull it off?
P.S her back is quite long
Thanks!

It's 'conformation'...with an 'o'.

At the lower levels it makes no difference what you ride. Have fun!

Any horse can do lower level eventing! I say, go out, start jumping (with an instructor of course) and see if she likes it enough to do some little lower level stuff.

I don't think you would have any problems at all. You would be surprised to see some of the conformation of some of the GP horses out there. Some of them have the worst conformation or very BAD conformation faults but with proper training and riding have managed to surpace those faults and do very well.

Good luck with your training.

Thanks for your help. I ride at an arabian barn so, compared to every other horse, sally has the bad comformation. It takes some of the weight off my shoulders to know that she really isnt that bad.
Thanks so much!

I agree with everyone so far - the wonderful thing about eventing is that ANY horse and rider can go out and do the lower levels, as long as they're dedicated to learning and training! :) Have fun!
