Confo critique 7yo Paint-trail horse

This is my trail horse, Sunny. Registered name RR Bucks Sunny Dee. I'd like to hear any feedback on her confo that you have to offer :) She is mainly a trail/pleasure horse, although we have only done 4 trail rides this year due to the excessive heat. I cannot for the life of me sit her trot.

If someone told me this horse was a 2 or 3 year old I would say more positive things. As a 7 year old she is weak (or weedy).. lacking in substance all the way around.

Her hocks are too high and her bone is light. Her coupling is weak and her back is long. She has good withers and her neck is set on nicely. 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.

Thank you for the input. She does have a good disposition, and I enjoy trail riding with her very much. Her color is what I was drawn to when I bought her. I do admit, she isn't worked enough.

I agree with Elana. She's got a very steep shoulder and pastern angle and a long back. She also lacks good muscle definition. She is much smaller through her shoulders and hindquarters than she is through the middle. She may also be slightly cow hocked.

Very pretty coloration!
