Not really the best photos for an accurate critique, but from what I can see, she's got decent front legs
Shoulder angle is only the teensiest bit on the upright side for my personal liking
Back is an OK length
Hindquarters are shaped relatively well
Cannot say much about the hind legs without her standing square to the camera

Can't really tell much from the photos but I have a question about one of them.

It looks like she is being ridden with a double tie down that goes between her front legs. Hard to see.. but tell me it ain't so!!

I honestly have no idea...that photo was just sent to me from the previous owner.

I zoomed in on the picture on my phone, and I can't really tell...

I would not use such a rig on a horse.. and if it was a previous owner.. well this horse will have a safer life going forward.

I think its draw reins that are connected to the bottom of the girth between the legs.

No critique but a very pretty mare but I hate the way the her hooves have been trimmed very steep angle I hope your farrier will fix that.

Oh I know what they are.. and they should never be attached there.. especially if you are on the horse.
