Looking for my first horse...what do you think?

Starting this year, I've been looking for my first horse. I've been riding for about 4 years now and feel like I'm ready for ownership.

I want something that is beginner friendly (I'd like to be able to teach my dad some basic riding skills too) but I can still take him/her to shows and do relatively well. I'm mostly interested in hunter/jumper.

This mare is very promising. I just wanted to get an idea of what you guys think of her conformation.

From her ad: 9 year old 15HH Quarter Horse mare, goes walk/trot/canter and jumps 3ft with ease, currently used as a camp/lesson horse for beginners-advanced riders. Competed at various local schooling shows and rated shows, was division champion in 2'6 jumpers. She is 100% sound and very well mannered on the ground.$3700 obo.

Here she is: http://i.imgur.com/A1tDs.jpg

The pics provided are not very good conformation pictures none of them are straight on so you can't really tell. She's very cute and her legs look good.

She looks pretty good. She may do OK in hunter in local shows but you can see she does not keep her legs even (and 'pretty') over fences and that may count against her in Hunter classes.

I like her. A bit long in the back.. but from what I see, she looks good. Be sure to do a PPE with xrays for that price.

I'd want to see a side-on photo from the off side... that front right pastern is catching my eye, and not in a good way. Could be the angle and the sock playing tricks on my eyes though.

Its a lot of money! I would definitely get her vetted to make sure she is totally sound. She is a nice looking pony though.
