Arrow 4 YR old TB Critique for Jumping/Dressage prospect

My friend and I are going to go look at this little mare next Sunday :)

This would be her horse to do some jumping on later in life and her show horse :) Please tell me what you see

**I know this sint thebest confirmation shot but is is all I have till i see her next sunday**

She raced 6 times and never came in higher then 3rd and just wasnt into the racing life so they took her off the track. She is clean and no soundness issues at all :) she is only four years old and 15.1

I love her backwards question mark as a star!

Her registerd name: Free My Beau
Her Pedigree: Free At Last-Beau Zapper by Defensive Play

It may be the way she's standing, but she looks a little toed out in the front. And judging by that one back foot, she may also be sickle hocked. Her feet also look like they could use a trim..

Her front legs scare me a little bit, but otherwise she look well put-together.

She sure looks nice to me. Definitely worth a look.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

She looks quite tied in behind the knee to me. This is going to have significant weight on her suitability for a jumping mount.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

I agree.....

toed out, sickle hocked, needs a trim, and her front legs do not look all that stable.

I would also get some weight in certain areas and tighten up some of the others.....but other then that I like her.....

Back at the knee, pigeon toed, sickle hocked, just plain crooked ... weak looking, un-impressive shoulder and check, nice butt, weird neck.

Tack more pictures when you go.
Do not jump this horse, please.
