Critique my 2 year old TB Mare ?

I recently bought this mare sight unseen ( breed to race hence started so early but didn't want to be a race horse) I'm hoping to turn her into a sport horse when she get older, Eventing/showjumping. Some Opinions on her conformation would be very helpful thanks !

The last two images are thumbnails and too small to judge conformation from, if you could make them larger that would help. :)
She looks very cute in the first picture though!

I don't know much about exact things she would need to become and excellent showjumper, but she looks like good horse to me, no creepy faults or anything, the pasterns seem a little long to me, but with careful training shouldnt be a problem.
I would just put off riding and training for jumping, apart from free jumps, for about a year, or even more...

I don't have anything to say conformation wise, but she is absolutely gorgeous!

This little filly is NICE NICE NICE.Other than a slightly tall wither (very typical of this breed) and a neck that ties in high because of it, I can't find much wrong with this horse. Nicely laid back wither, strong open hip, straight legs, good length of back and strong coupling. She's a bit wasp waisted but I've found that racing conditioned TBs loose this once they stop training most of the time. I really like her and think that if she enjoys it, she can definitely go the eventing route. I'd actually like to see her do a little show jumping.

However, just as a word of advice, you might think about giving her some time off from riding and let her grow a little more. She's very young and too nice to mess up by pushing her too quickly. What does her pedigree look like?

Are you sure she's only 2? Very nice looking, well put together young mare.

Oops, found a typo xD *nicely laid back SHOULDER, not wither ;)

I, also, am surprised by how mature she looks for a 2 year old, but I'm used to seeing my scrawny little stunted filly so I figured that was just me. Perhaps she's a late two year old.
