3 Year Old Appy Mare(: Be Honest!

This is A Winning Hand, "Winnie". She's had 60 days professional training. I'm wanting to finish her out in Hunter Under Saddle, Halter, Western Pleasure and Comp. Trail. Anyway, critique her! (: Be completely honest.
Here's a link to her Sire: All Hands On Zip - 5x World Champion

Very cute mare! Her coloring is adorable and her overall built is quite nice. :) Her neck seems a little short to me which gives her a very stocky appearence but I am used to those long warmblood hunter necks haha. So I may be wrong!

Just to point out thought, in the last picture she is incredibly behind the bit/vertical. She is evading the contact by rounded too much and therfor she has no impulsion coming from behind. The other u/s picture looks wonderful to me, just try to remember not to frame her up too much...and if she tries to evade the contact, move her up and forward from the bit. :)

Beautiful Appy first off!
Overall, she's got a nice stocky build, good shoulder & nice deep girth. A bit bum high and not much shape to her back, which i think is what makes it look a little long.

If you hadn't said mare I might have assume stallion , due to her chunky neck. But she is really gorgeous and built like a "brick house" (which is a compliment, btw) her neck , and very slightly tied in behind the knee are the only faults. Her hind is oh so nice and she is really a very nicely put together western horse. I agree with the comment about not letting her learn to come behind the contact. You sit her so very nicely!

Her dam was a very odd choice to cross with AHOZ, but it worked...nothing negative to say about her at all. She is about as well conformed as it is possible to be IMO...

Forgot to mention, that's her trainer. I'm picking her up from Nancy, the breeder, in a week and a half.

Wow! Im not a huge appy fan, but I do really like this mare! For being only 3, she, IMO, is really outstanding! And I am beyond jealous, as I dont think my yearling will look anywhere near as nice as that as a 3yr old! LOL

Beautiful! If I could fault her on anything it would be the stocky neck. But I like stocky necks, so I can't really fault her on that.
