Critique my mare please!

This is my 10 year old appendix quarter horse mare, about 16 hands (give or take lol). I have been trying to figure out what direction to point her nose in, and I'm thinking she'd make a good english horse maybe? What do you guys think I should do with her? I've done western pleasure, playdays and just about everything on her, I've had her since she was 4 and have been trying to find where she belongs:) Sorry if the pictures aren't that great, my computer is down so I am using the one at school and these are pretty much the only pictures I have..

She could be a decent hunter, depending on what her movement's like. Videos of her moving will help us out.

I would say she needs a bit of topline- she's gorgeous

99% of the time, its the riders fault.

Yeah, she's been really hard to keep weight on. We changed her diet and she is gaining weight really well:)

Audioswap them on YouTube. Then they'll play just fine, and the music will be updated.

Conformationally, while there's no single thing horribly wrong with her, she's very weak behind, lacks depth through the heartgirth, is straight through the stifle, and has no muscling. I definitely wouldn't point her in a Western direction.
