Well I really like her.

In the first pic I thought she looked downhill but she looks level or even uphill in the others. Yes, roach backed. Lovely neck on her and superb shoulder, though I do agree she looks a tad cow hocked and she stands under herself a bit much with her hind legs. Acceptable hindquarter otherwise. Good pasterns, lovely short cannons.

All in all I see potential. I think given the right training she would do well. Assuming, of course, that she has the passion and boldness to be clean and fast cross-country. If not feel free to send her to me and I'll have her as a showjumper/show hack/dressage horse ;)

Thanks Blue Eyed Pony!

She is defiantely bold and LOVES jumping. She has already done Training level Eventing and Level II jumpers, so I think she has what it takes!

The only problem with her jumping is she has always done the high stuff where she is supposed to go very fast, AND she has had bad training. But I am working with a great instructor who is helping us greatly.

lol my horse is the same!! I'd say he was actually originally trained really well by someone who knew what they were doing, I do know he was ruined by poor riding and ended up neglected - but the effect is the same, he bolts at his fences unless they're 3'4" or higher.

Oh forgot to ask, for comparison's sake, how high is Training level eventing? I ask because my fellow was competed to B grade which is also called preliminary where I am and I don't know how the levels compare.

Training level is 3'3'' prelim is the next up level.

3'3" sounds about right for B grade actually so your girl and my boy have similar levels of education.
