    Butt high, possible swayback, something bothers me with her front legs..Nice neck and head, I like her back legs.

    She definitely does have a long back and a high bum... what do you guys think she would be best at?

    Very pretty horse! But as with any she has a few flaws,
    Her shoulder is nice and big but built very upright and as a consequence her neck is also set very high
    The thing that I am noticing with her front legs is that her cannons are quite long but the angle of her pasterns is not terrible and she looks good and sturdy.
    Back is borderline long and as others have mentioned, bum high
    She has a prominent wither and is apparently starting to sway just a bit, which I've found to be a common trait in many Saddlebreds
    I adore her bum :) and though her hocks are set low, making her legs look even longer, in my opinion they are very close to correct

    Looks like an all around low level showing western or english horse. I think she could do just about anything you want. She might even pull a cart! (although, you might want to wait on that until she's a little older, been there done that)

    I think shed turn her hoof to anything! Some dressage, show jumping, working hunter classes. I think she's lovely! And I'm sure she'll grow out of being bum high. She seems to work from her back end so you may find she does a lovely dressage test! I just think she's plain gorgeous and I don't normally like coloureds!
