I think it might be more that the brown horse is older so is naturally more developed on its topline - and looks to be in slightly better condition too. The young mare will build up a lot more - she doesn't appear to have a downhill conformation and has good quarters - her front end and neck will improve with work and a bit more weight on her
Its very hard to tell without riding them both but I'm going to differ from everyone else and say I would buy the chestnut - I think she might have the potential to school on to be a much better horse than she rides at present, she has a lot more riding years in front of her - and she sounds to have a really good attitude too
