I think her topline will muscle up a little the longer you are doing slow work with her getting her collected and rounded. Top Sail Cody bred horses are build a little long and have a higher tail set than other reiners but they make great reiners and have a big stop.

I think she will be fun for little local shows, at least if she doesn't work out for reining you can do plenty of other things on her

She's downhill built. Not extremely, but she is downhill, which will probably make it difficult to properly fit a saddle to her. Her back is a little long, too. I wouldn't use her for anything other than trail riding. The stress from showing in any kind of performance discipline will just be too much on her body based on her conformation.

overall she is not bad, i find it interesting again how some people critique and say she is not a choice for barrels.. it doesn't mean because she is a bit off she can not have good runs and make a barrel horse. I have seen plent barrel horses worse than her confo that have been great barrel horses and hold up...
