    Hi there, she seems nicely built - couple things that stand out to me:
    1) front hooves.. long toe, low heels.. that can be fixed with correct trimming
    2) she appears to have a very short back combined with high wither - he may be a challenge to fit a saddle..
    3) I wish her throat latch area was a little cleaner.. her neck overall seems kind of thick, I'd like to see a little more refinement
    4) Her legs seem to be on the thin side for the size of her body

    Overall - nothing bad that I can see.. What is her pedigree do you know?

    No Pedigree.
    She was told she was able to get registered at some point. But she shuffled through a few owners and paperwork got lost. They found the first owner once but the number had been disconnected. So who knows! But she is a sweet horse. =]

    Also: Yes she was difficult to find a saddle they had to have one made.

    She does some jumping and trail riding. She just enjoys doing anything with her. It's her first horse. :)

    I think she wants to jump someday as that what she does the most.

    If that is your friend's first horse then the temperament of the horse should be the #1 on the list.. Does your friend have any prior experience with horses? I am assuming she took lessons or leased a horse before if she is looking to purchase one right? :)

    Oh she knows.
    Its her first horse but she has had her for 4 or 5 years.
    The horse is willing to go anywhere for her. They are a lovely pair. =]

    Perfect scenario - she knows the mare well then :) I am very happy for her!

    I didn't know that QHs can be pinto. She seems odd to me. Not like I'm used to seeing horses in the breed.

    Well no - QH's cannot be pinto.. however she could be a Paint (APHA) if she was registered with APHA (colored QH), if she is not registered with APHA then she is just "pinto" which is no breed but color registry..
