Haha, her withers are way high, Like seriously, I haven't seen withers that high before. Oh well, she may be a good horse even if her neck ties in very strangely to her chest, and that her withers are reaching the high heavens... You'll just have to wait and see.

E v e r y horse is good for something. You dont throw a whole life away just cause he's banged up a little...

She looks very TB... high withers, deep girth that ties into smaller hindquarters and long legs, long neck, long face with refined features, She also has the thick legs and big hooves of a mustang. I do not see the stocky build of a quarter/mustang. Her conformation says to me she would be extremely quick on her feet.
She is built very down hill but the level between the knees and hocks is very good. Her pelvis is rather small compared to the lenght of her back and only makes up maybe 1/5th of her over all body lenght so its a rather small engine. She has a very steep shoulder which will probably inhibit her from extending her gaits out and make the ride a tad rougher.

A horse which stops dead just before a jump and thus propels its rider into a graceful arc provides a splendid excuse for general merriment.

I know from personal experience what bad shoulder angles can do to a ride. Your best hope is to train her to collect and go slowly for the smoothest ride. Because of the shoulder angle, the front legs have an up and down motion with little reach. None of the gaits are going to bring rider comfort if you try for speed.

For many years my dad was convinced that he wasn't a very good rider because he couldn't sit a walk or canter, but it was the poor conformation of the mare he always rode. After he finally rode a different horse, he learned all about how smooth a ride could be. The mare with the bad angles was bred once, and we completely lucked out that the filly had nice conformation and comfortable gaits.
