Built to be and Eventer? Overall Critique?

Hey everyone so this is my 9 (turning 10 on Thursday mare) she's done hunter/jumpers and dressage but I'm think about moving more towards eventing she has very flowing movement for dressage and is a great jumper and has jumped up to 3'3" so what do you guys think is she built to be an eventer? And just overall critique on conformation would be helpful! thanks!

She seems like she'd be fine for eventing! Horses of all shapes and sizes can get their jobs done, and if she's good in dressage and jumping, she'll probably make a great eventer! The only thing I'd suggest is doing a lot of schooling cross country with your trainer, and also starting out at a BN level at first just to get the feel for it!

I can't say much about her conformation from the pictures, but she's lovely and looks to be built well!

I would like to see some pictures of her undersaddle and over some jumps if you could? She looks very well put together :) and VERY pretty! I think you two would do great at eventing!

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.
