Deffinatly not upper level dressage horse.
She is upright in her shoulders, bum high, post legged, upright pasturns and very thick through the jowls.
Upright in the shoulder and bum high would make it hard to collect enough for upper levels, thich through the jowls will make it very difficult to flex from the poll.
Post legged will mean that under the pressure of the upper level movements the horse will NOT stay sound.
Regular chiropractors are perfecrtly normal even for a well conformed dressage horse at that level.
RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
