Why will you be breeding her? She's pretty, but not exceptional. Is she some sort of prize-winning super-horse? I'm not being rude, but with how many amazing horses get sent to slaughter or get neglected, why breed a sub-par horse to get a sub-par foal?

Overall both appear to be good using sort of horses. Out of the two I prefer the mare. I find her to be fairly balanced with a nice length of topline and decent angles front and rear. Her pasterns are excellent and I like her hocks and length of canon. she is slightly downhill, but this is the norm for stock breeds. Things I would change about her - she is a little bit steep in the croup; she appears to be slightly back at the knee (though it could be the photo and is minor), and I would like a slightly longer neck that ties more neatly in at the withers. In the more recent phot with the saddle I am not too excited about the upside down muscling in her neck either (but this is training, not conformation). I don't see post legged, but she is slightly sickle hocked, which may or may not be a bad thing depending on your intended purposes. Overall I think she is a nice looking girl.

The gelding looks like a decent fellow too. I agree he looks more TB than QH. I am not a fan of his hind end, as he is a bit posty and weak looking through that hind quarter. I would prefer more substance for his size. He is a little but longer in the back and weaker in his loin. He needs more muscling throughout and to be ridden from the rear forward to get his ring of muscles working. Overall I don't see anything glaring about him that should create unsound ness, but not a real stand out either.
