This is a very very nice mare. She could do dressage and maybe go a ways with it. She has a good shoulder, proper neck placement, short back, top of the line coupling, good knee and hock placement, good bone, good size to her feet, good angles to her hind leg. I could say she may be a little tied in at the knee but it does not hurt her at all.
I would love to own this mare as solid as she looks.
BTW I too hate Kimberwicke bits. they stink.
Getting her off her forehand means riding her back to front. She can do it. She is so solidly coupled that it won't take the work another horse might to get her working better and lighter in front. Get her forward.
