For some reason this is not showing up in the headings on the Conformation area of the forum when you open it.

Anyway.. this looks like an older Thoroughbred. She has very prominant withers coupled with a long and very sway aback and may be hard to fit a saddle to. It almost appears as if she has a bump on her withers from saddle bumping her there.

Her shoulder may be a bit steep, but her point of shoulder is high enough to compensate, especially over fences. She is a bit over at the knee.. but this is not really a fault in a jumper or hunter.

She is a bit straight through the stifle but she has a nice large roomy hock. She is a bit downhill in build but not bad. Her neck is set a bit low, tho it looks nicely arched.

She would benefit greatly from lots and lots of caveletti work (12 inches off the ground.. 8 poles.. which you work up to) as well as lots of long hills with the rider in a 2 point and the horse with a loos rein. This will allow her to lower her head, riase her back and build her abdominal muscles to support her back.

Like this horse and would like her a lot more with a shorter, less swayed, back.

Very nicely turned out BTW.

I don't see a huge sway back like these others are saying. She is young! All she needs is some work to help develop her back! Watch this video all the way through. Towards the end she shows a specific stretch to work the horses abdominal to help lift the horses back. This has helped my 18 year old severely sway backed horse.
