    She looks a lot older than two, and if she is indeed 2, please read up on the benefits and drawbacks of riding a horse so young, and what their joints need if you do want to ride so young.
    She is a very nice looking mare. You want to take care now so she can be sound into her late teens.

    She's beautiful! Pretty well built. Not a horse I'd ever turn down :) congrats!

    Thanks for all the feedback, Great to know people like her as much as I do ! The Pictures are from when she was 2 but was a few month off turning three, hence why she probably looks older :) Even though she is broken in, I have turned her out and wont bring her back till she's 4, she's such a kind and calm mare that she definitely deserves taking care of :)

    Well you definitely caught yourself a good one there. Did you buy her straight off of the track?

    Nice horse and looks like she could do most under English Tack sort of jobs.

    However, you need a new farrier. Those hind feet are very low in the heel. Trimmed as they are, they put tremendous stress on her hocks. She needs more heel and less toe behind. The way she is trimmed almost makes her sickle hocked.

    Looking at her I expect what WILL limit her in performance are her feet. I suspect very fine, thin walled, Thoroughbred feet that may not hold up to jumping or evening (although the rest of her looks like she could do either).

    Otherwise I like her. She has low hocks and knees. A good shoulder, short back and good coupling placement. Her neck in set on well and she is up hill. Her withers will make saddle fitting a challenge.

    Nice horse.. but I wonder about those feet.
