How would this mare do in...

Just wondering on your thoughts on how this mare would do in dressage/ H/J ?

She is 16.1+

Here is some conformation pictures:

And.... just for fun...

Well, she's kind of downhill in build, which is always a challenge in dressage. She is pretty and has a nice shoulder and good bone and front legs straight, so maybe h/j? There's the tiniest hint of a hunter's bump on her.

Is anyone seeing something weird with her front feet? Like the angle from the "ankle" to the hoof is too much.

She's a little calf kneed however I think she would benefit from dressage and some jumping. Might possibly build up the topline on her to detract from the hunter bump.

Well I was thinking the weird foot angle would be hard for her to be jumping certain heights. IMO I think she'd do good in dressage rather than jumping, again just my opinion.
