Her shoulder is a bit steep and I would like a little more open angle at the point of shoulder. Her front legs are over straight thru the knee (side view) and she has very upright pasterns all the way round. She will land hard at the trot and this is partly why. Her short gaskins mean she has a short stride and that along with upright shoulder and upright pasterns say it will be rough riding.
She toes out in front ever so slightly. She is butt high, so difficult to collect.
That being said, she goes together as a package.. she fits herself... and her color is very nice. She looks to have a nice eye and I suspect a good disposition.
