You didn't say what you want to do w/this horse? Breed her? Show her? Is she already pregnant? What has she done so far? The white marks say that she had a bad-fitting saddle in the past. Can't see her feet too well due to the snow. At least she isn't skinny, so hopefully she has had good care-is she trained for anything?

She appears a bit bum high, has a pretty up right shoulder, over at the knee. She looks a bit toed out in the hinds from what I can see. She needs a little exercise. She's not too bad looking. Wha are your plans for her?

This horse has a VERY strong coupling and a good hind leg. She has a steep shoulder and the point of shoulder is quite low so she will probably not get her knees up over fences if you plan to jump her.

Her neck is set a bit low and the dip in front of the withers says she may have a hatchet neck (this is an injury and not necessarily and unsoundness). She has decent bone and she stands over a lot of ground. She is level and that will make using her hand getting her collected much easier.

I cannot see her feet but I suspect she needs a trim. I also would like to see her set up on a hard surface and have another look at the hind legs from behind.

I would go and see this horse.

Right now I am interested in just english pleasure, maybe some low level eventing/showing. Probably no jumping.

If you are doing low level eventing you are jumping.. two phases involve going over fences (cross country and stadium). One phase is dressage.

This horse can probably do that.
