please critique my 2011 aqha filly?

Hi this is my horse, Macey. She is going to be 2 in February and i was hoping you could critique her conformation good/bad. Im hoping to do show her in some production classes next show season. I plan on training and showing her western pleasure, showmanship, and halter. But was wondering if shed do better as a jumper. What do you think?

How is this filly bred?

I wouldn't consider her to be a jumper...I think she needs to be a western horse. Haha. Love her hip.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Yeah, I would lean more towards western events with her, also.

She's bum high, but as a filly, it might even out with age. However, I don't seeing her growing completely out of it. Slightly sickle-hocked, perhaps. Odd angle to the pasterns.

As a besides, how is she for HYPP? Kid Clu is N/H, I believe. Who's her dam's-dam and damsire?

She is a very beautiful... dun? I see a dorsal stripe and slight leg barring, so I'm calling her dun.

Lots to like about this filly. She looks to have decent bone and a nice shoulder. She is down hill and she does have sickle hocks but her hocks appear to be nice and low. She is a little tied in at the knee.

She has a lot of butt and her neck is very babyish.. it will be interesting to see how she develops.

I too expect she will always be a bit down hill. You won't know about jumping until she is about 4 years old. I suspect she may hang her knees but it is too early to tell.
