This horse was posed to bring out her best qualities. Notice that she is posed nearly perfectly albeit it a bit stretched and with her front feet up hill. It is hard to say if she is butt high. I think she is level. She is also turned out nicely.. standing on firm ground and CLEAN.. not some deep sandy arena or some mud lot. Really.. this is what a horse should look like for a critique. I wish she had more rear end.
She is a bit over conditioned... just enough to cover flaws. Nice Horse.
She has a nice shoulder and, typical of the breed, her neck is set right where it should be. Her shoulder might lay back a little more if she was on level ground (a good thing). She has adequate bone all the way round and nice large hocks. She stands over a lot of ground which is typical for the breed and has a slightly low point of shoulder.
