Coffee needs a critique

Okay... time to find out if my horse is really a cow

These are the first pics I took of her, haven't had time to really get any more. I know her neck is less than desirable but would like to have an honest critique of this mare. I added a couple moving shots to show how much she wants to be a saddlebred.
If you need some better shots please let me know... will try to get some asap.

Pictures of her squared up from the front, hind, and both sides would be helpful.

I see a horse with good bone and strong, mostly straight legs. Lovely trot, she looks fun to ride. However, her back is a lot longer than what I would call ideal, and her wither/neck don't tie in well together. It appears to me as if she's beginning to form an ewe neck, but this can be corrected by riding her in-frame with her body well rounded and powered off of her hindquarters. She seems to be built upwards, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, depending on her discipline.

Good heart girth and shoulders, but fairly week coupling and no muscle in her hindquarters.

All in all she seems like a decent horse, and her movement is very desirable. What breed is she?

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

She's a QH... Kingville Sunshine Quarter Horse

I'm looking at her as a jumper type.
That neck kills me. Hide it on the pic of her stretched out trotting and she looks great.

I'm better versed with dressage conformation, so take this with a grain of salt...

Looks like a strong backend, but the loin is weak, which is a shame. Her front end is nice enough for jumping too. Looks like a clean enough shoulder. Good point of shoulder. Her humerus is long enough and at a decent angle (the more vertical, the better). Knees look low enough I think.

Again, my only concern is her back. You don't want too short in a jumping horse, but even so, her back is a tad long.

The neck is not so bad. Just needs some good muscling. Make sure you work with her correctly as to prevent her from building muscle upside down. It's set high, which is a good thing.

All in all, a good mount. (I think, lol)
