What a chunk-a-monk! O.o

Can't tell much from that pic because the angle is bad, but she looks like she might be decent under all that blubber. Her back looks like it might be a little long and she looks to be a bit butt high, maybe. Hard to tell anything at all about her hind legs, but if I were to guess, I'd say she's a bit posty behind.

What would you be doing with her?
Do not tell me I can't...because I will show you that I can.

I think she'd do well at both, once you slim her down. She looks to be fairly well-built, like I said.

No more alfalfa donuts for her! Good gravy!
If she's that overweight, I would be looking for one of two things....either TOO much feed, or she's mugging other horses for their lunch money, and eating their twinkies too.
If she's fed individually, she's getting way too much.
If she's group fed, she's about at the top of the food chain.
I had something similar with my girl when I got her.
I cut her feed by half, and we started our workouts 2x a week, just so it wouldn't kill either one of us.
Now, 2 months later, she's well on her way to being a lean mean poopin machine!
Oh, whoops! I meant lean, mean, trail riding machine!
Yeah, that's the ticket!

Also to add to what the other have said (if this hasn't been mentioned already) check to see what her HYPP(sp?) status is...Nice looking mare though :)

She almost looks back at the knee. Hard to tell from the pic, but she is very pretty. Very thick and slimmed down, she should be a good mare.
At first I thought 'that's not a mare' but then I realized that it was something in the background hahaha.

Not a great photo to judge conformation. Do see she is long in back & possibly back a knee.I would try get better pics to judge more fairly.
