3 year old AQHA mare

Meet Jackie!
She has a skinny neck and a big head, but other than that, what do you think?

Nice shoulder. Neck is set a little high and yes, needs muscling.
Good depth of girth and nothing seriously off about her front legs, other than that her pasterns might be a touch too long.
Back might be a tad long as well and she is bum high.
Sharp slope to her croup but otherwise nice hindquarters.
Hard to say about her back legs. Maybe just a tiny bit sickled.

as an english person I love her neck tie in, but I prefer high to low, allows for more freedom in the shoulder and collection potential. I love her deep hip, croup is a bit high but that hip, yowza, gorgeous. I like her pastern length but they are a bit upright, a good farrier may be able to help the angle a bit. Shoulder is a little straight, and a little short in depth compared to the other thirds. I rather like her head and think with muscle she will grow into it. The color is to die for of course! Overall a fantastic mare. What do you do with her?

on third look, it's not her head that's large, it's her ears! But they are super cute. Nothing to worry about!

No major confo faults. Pretty girl, her ears are big but nicely shaped, her head looks quite doll-like in the last photo.

I agree with all the above critiques. She's a lovely little mare, and I love those ears, lol.

They are big ears... and they curve funny :P

Right now, I'm just putting a good solid foundation on her for my mom, after that, she'll be used for ranch work and team roping most likely, although she'd make a stellar reiner....

I finally inspired her to stay in a lope for a full circle today, I took a calf tying string and put it on my saddle horn and used it as an over n under.

This is a bit off-topic, but can you explain what an over and under is? My horse doesn't like to stay in a canter, and this worked for you, so I'm wondering if I could use the idea, too, lol.
