    I actually REALLY like this little mare!
    She has a nice equilateral triangle hip with a nice line right down to her hocks. He's got a deep loin for supporting weight and s nice laid back shoulder, matched with an nice angle to her elbow, so she is going to have a nice smooth gait. She has a weird neck connection and I ideally would like to see it a touch higher, but with that laidback shoulder she should be able to tuck and jump quiet well. She has well taken care of hooves that angle well in to her pastures.

    She has a rather thick throatlatch, so you’re going to have some issues with her flexing at the pole. I would definitely video tape some lessons or events and watch how she flexes and collects.
    She has a relatively good barrel but I would like to see it a touch larger. Especially when taken in to proportion of her hindquarters.

    I think the biggest stand out is that she has squatty QH legs. They are perfect for sprinting and reigning, but for eventing you IDEALLY would want a little more length in the legs. She has a good body type and with a touch more leg length she would go from slightly to rectangle to a more perfect square. She also has a simple head, and it’s far too masculine for a mare. So while I wouldn’t breed her I would definitely make an excellent hunter, or low level eventer.

    She definitely looks mostly QH to me, so you are going to want to add endurance excises, especially since she’s not going to cover as much ground as other horses.

    Overall a very nice horse!
