I'm not great at conformation but to me her back looks quite long... might be an illusion, I'm new at this!

She is both weak and rough coupled. Her knees and hocks are a bit too high. She looks to have adequate bone but also looks tied in at the knee. Good shoulder and set to her neck. She is weak muzzled.. very snipey in that regard (even for an Arabian as the breed wants a delicate muzzle.. this is too delicate).

I agree that she is rough coupled and in some of the pictures she looks over in the knee too soft of a muzzle and I don't know what it is but I don't care for her tail set

Like a car with no shocksdown a dirt road lol. She is not a smooth ride but you have to force her to slow down.

She looks really uncomfortable. If she chooses to stand underneath herself that much all the time i'd really look into it.

Her feet and everything are fine, trust me my first thought was founder. Nope its just her conformation. And she was used for horse tripping so I would not be surprised if her stance has been altered by that.

Per your request. Aqua lines show what I would LIKE to see.. a higher point of shoulder and a less steep shoulder and her point of croup moved forward. . She is actually quite level. I wish hocks and knees were closer to the ground. She is pigeon breasted and she has a weak jaw.. wish she has a stronger head.

Nice sized feet.
