Critique AQHA mare

This is my 12 year old 15.1 hand Quarter horse mare. Right now I just trail ride her and do occasional arena work. I don't plan on doing anything new with her, but what does she look like she would have been able to do based on conformation? These aren't the greatest pics but it's all I have so just judge what you can.

I like her a lot. Nice back, clean legs and a strong hind end. Her shoulder is on the steep side. I don't think she's sickle-hocked; the second picture looks like a better representation of her leg stance than the last, and her hocks look fine to me. They might be set a little high for my taste, but they're well-conformed otherwise. Neck could be a little longer and leaner, but that could just be me--I'm used to my Thoroughbred necks! Does she have any halter breeding in her? Something about her front end makes me think she might.

She's welcome in my barn any time!

Yes, she's halter and western pleasure bred!

Her neck ties in too low, her forlegs are too far under, she is camped under, and her throat latch is too thick.. other than that, she has nice withers, i like her big shoulder, and i like her color, and she has a sweet, kind eye. :)

Quarter horses are the most versitile breed.. you can do what ever you want with her really.. :)

It looks like she might be a little tied in at the knee and/or over at the knee. I notice it most in the 2nd picture.

I'm still learning about evaluating conformation, so take my comments with a grain of salt.
