    Need an honest Conformation Opinion

    My neighbors are looking at this mare....besides the fact that she's grossly underweight, how does her conformation look?

    Here is the link to her ad:
    Flashy Young Mare for Sale for sale in Litchfield, Connecticut :: HorseClicks

    She would be used as a general Western riding / trail / pleasure horse. She most likely wouldn't be shown.

    Thanks in advance :)

    I'm not much help on a conformation critique but I don't see grossly underweight. A bit, yes, but not grossly.

    Back at the knee, tied in at the knee, poor angles to the hind leg, too much set to the hind leg, weedy looking.

    How old is she?

    She's 2.5

    She is a weedy coming 3 year old. I have my doubts about her finishing over 15hh.. if you go and look at her, put a stick on her. She may not even be 14.2hh.

    Sorry, but not knowledgeable about conformation, what does her being weedy mean for her future?

    Agree with Elena. Also, wayyyyyyyy overpriced.

    "Weedy" means she will probably mature light, unbalanced and unsubstantial.

    She looks like a horse bred for color and not for conformation.

    Thank you, I really appreciate it.

    $2500?? An unstarted gangly three year old? I'm lucky if I'll get that for full grown, registered, and well broke ranch geldings! Definitely not worth the price and her conformation is less than to be desired..
