As said previously, I think she may not make a good jumper/hunter. Angle at the point of shoulder is insufficient.

I have free jumper her before and she LOVES it! She actually over jumped a small 1 foot jump and jumped about 3 feet up.

Loving it and being good at it under saddle are two different things.. but, as stated previously, see how it goes and do get some pictures of her in the air.

Most horses can do 2' to 2'6" fairly safely even without good form.

I agree she does not look 16 hands, your dad must be 7 ' tall,
She looks like she would be better for hunter classes. I can't see her doing the higher jumps.

2'6 is about as high as I want her to jump. So that works. Ill get some pics of er jumping soon.

Sorry for the poor lighting and poor quality pics. I was just trying to hurry before it got too dark so she isnt standing very square.

To be fair to this horse, you honestly need better way around it...sorry. Unless you have actually sticked this horse, you can not say she is 16 hands as the length of her cannons do not indicate that.

From what I can see, see has a decent length of back, I like her hocks and where they are set on the leg/the angle, and in relation to her knees, but she is carrying more bone in her back cannons than in the front. Her pasterns are also longer in the front than in the back, but once really can't assess fairly based on these photos. Her fault is her neck, in one pic it looks like she is developing a big muscle on the bottom...the other pic I don't see that. She is built like a western horse, more compact than a QH hunter horse.

So in other words, she looks like a different horse in each pic so you NEED to get correct shots, with her squared up, standing dead set at the middle of her barrel. Your side shots are at different can't have that if you want a correct analysis. Below is a pic of how you take confo shots:
