I'm personally having a hard time finding something I don't like about her! Maybe posty in the hind legs? And her pasterns are short and upright, gorgeous girl!

Not much to say, honestly. Head looks a little too petite for her body but apart from that she is a very well put together horse ;)

I like this horse as a represntative of her breed EXCEPT for her front legs. She is light in bone and tied in at the knee and her pasterns are very upright. She might use a slightly longer hip.. but that is slicing hairs.

In the photo from behind it also looks like her hind hoof walls flare out which may indicate she has thin walled feet insufficient for her body weight.

Nice horse.

Nice horse.
I was also thinking I'd like to see her with some heavier bone :)

Thank you for your comments. I really learn alot from these conformation threads. I realized she has very upright pasterns, I have a harder time recognizing when someone says a horse is "light in bone". Can someone point me in the direction to pictures showing a horse with adequate leg bone structure? Still very much learning. I really appreciate the critique!
